	string strPassword,
	byte[] rgbSalt,
	string strHashName,
	int iterations
)

Parameters

strPassword
Type: System.String

The password for which to derive the key.

rgbSalt
Type: System.Byte[]

The key salt to use to derive the key.

strHashName
Type: System.String

The name of the hash algorithm for the operation.

iterations
Type: System.Int32

System_CAPS_security Security Note

Never hard-code a password within your source code. Hard coded passwords can be retrieved from an assembly using the Ildasm.exe (IL Disassembler) tool, a hex editor, or by simply opening up the assembly in a text editor like notepad.exe.

For a list of hash algorithm names, see the CryptoConfig class.
