public enum CryptographicProviderType

Member nameDescription
Dss

A provider type that, like RsqSig, only supports hashes and digital signatures. Dss specifies the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) signature algorithm.

Fortezza

A provider type that contains a set of cryptographic protocols and algorithms owned by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

MicrosoftExchange

A provider type designed for the cryptographic needs of the Microsoft Exchange mail application and other applications compatible with Microsoft Mail.

None

No cryptographic provider type specified.

RsaFull

The full RSA provider type, which supports both digital signatures and data encryption. Considered a general purpose cryptographic services provider. The RSA public-key algorithm is used for all public-key operations.

RsqSig

A subset of the RsaFull provider type, which supports only those functions and algorithms required for hashes and digital signatures.

Ssl

A provider type that supports the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

SttAcq

Secure transaction technology provider acquirer.

SttBrnd

Secure transaction technology provider brand.

SttIss

Secure transaction technology provider issuer.

SttMer

Secure transaction technology provider enterprise.

SttRoot

Secure transaction technology provider root.

A cryptographic service provider contains implementations of cryptographic standards and algorithms. Applications can require the authentication provider name or authentication provider type of a cryptographic service provider to validate the digital signatures.
