AsymmetricAlgorithm.Create Method ()

Creates a default cryptographic object used to perform the asymmetric algorithm.

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

public static AsymmetricAlgorithm Create ()
public static AsymmetricAlgorithm Create ()
public static function Create () : AsymmetricAlgorithm
Not applicable.

Return Value

The cryptographic object used to perform the asymmetric algorithm.

The following code example demonstrates how to implement the Create method in an extended class. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the AsymmetricAlgorithm class.

// The create function attempts to create a CustomCrypto object using
// the assembly name. This functionality requires modification of the
// machine.config file. Add the following section to the configuration
// element and modify the values of the cryptoClass to reflect what is
// installed in your machines GAC.
//  <cryptographySettings>
//    <cryptoNameMapping>
//      <cryptoClasses>
//        <cryptoClass CustomCrypto="Contoso.CustomCrypto, 
//          CustomCrypto, 
//          Culture=neutral, 
//          PublicKeyToken=fdb9f9c4851028bf, 
//          Version=1.0.1448.27640" />
//      </cryptoClasses>
//      <nameEntry name="Contoso.CustomCrypto" class="CustomCrypto" />
//      <nameEntry name="CustomCrypto" class="CustomCrypto" />
//    </cryptoNameMapping>
//  </cryptographySettings>
