Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static HashAlgorithm Create()

Return Value

Type: System.Security.Cryptography.HashAlgorithm
A new SHA1CryptoServiceProvider instance, unless the default settings have been changed using the <cryptoClass> Element.

By default, this overload uses the SHA1CryptoServiceProvider implementation of a hash algorithm. If you want to specify a different implementation, use the Create(String) overload, which lets you specify an algorithm name, instead. The cryptography configuration system defines the default implementation of HashAlgorithm.
