System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

When overridden in a derived class, extracts secret information from the encrypted key exchange data.

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

public abstract byte[] DecryptKeyExchange(
	byte[] rgb
)

Parameters

rgb
Type: System.Byte[]

The key exchange data within which the secret information is hidden.

Return Value

Type: System.Byte[]

The secret information derived from the key exchange data.

You must specify a key before calling an implementation of this method.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the DecryptKeyExchange method to create an encrypted key exchange for the specified input data. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter class.

// Create the encrypted key exchange data from the specified input
// data. This method uses the RSACryptoServiceProvider only. To
// support additional providers or provide custom decryption logic,
// add logic to this member.
public override byte[] DecryptKeyExchange(byte[] rgbData) {
    byte[] decryptedBytes = null;

    if (rsaKey != null)
    {
        if (rsaKey is RSACryptoServiceProvider)
        {
            RSACryptoServiceProvider serviceProvder =
                (RSACryptoServiceProvider)rsaKey;

            decryptedBytes = serviceProvder.Decrypt(rgbData, true);
        }
        // Add custom decryption logic here.
    }
    else
    {
        throw new CryptographicUnexpectedOperationException(
            "Cryptography_MissingKey");
    }

    return decryptedBytes;
}
