public:
virtual void SetKey(
	AsymmetricAlgorithm^ key
) abstract

Parameters

key
Type: System.Security.Cryptography::AsymmetricAlgorithm^

The instance of the implementation of AsymmetricAlgorithm that holds the private key.

You must set a key before calling a DecryptKeyExchange implementation.

The following code example demonstrates how to override the SetKey to set the public key for encryption operations. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the AsymmetricKeyExchangeDeformatter class.
