AsymmetricSecurityKey.GetAsymmetricAlgorithm Method

When overridden in a derived class, gets the specified asymmetric cryptographic algorithm.

Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Tokens
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public abstract AsymmetricAlgorithm GetAsymmetricAlgorithm(
	string algorithm,
	bool privateKey


Type: System.String

The asymmetric algorithm to create.

Type: System.Boolean

true when a private key is required to create the algorithm; otherwise, false.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.Cryptography.AsymmetricAlgorithm
An AsymmetricAlgorithm that represents the specified asymmetric cryptographic algorithm.
Typically, true is passed into the privateKey parameter, as a private key is typically required for decryption.

Use the static fields of the SecurityAlgorithms class to specify the algorithm.
