AsymmetricSignatureFormatter Class

Represents the base class from which all implementations of asymmetric signature formatters derive.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]

The AsymmetricSignatureFormatter type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Protected methodAsymmetricSignatureFormatterInitializes a new instance of AsymmetricSignatureFormatter.
Top

  NameDescription
Public methodCreateSignature(Byte[])When overridden in a derived class, creates the signature for the specified data.
Public methodCreateSignature(HashAlgorithm)Creates the signature from the specified hash value.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSetHashAlgorithmWhen overridden in a derived class, sets the hash algorithm to use for creating the signature.
Public methodSetKeyWhen overridden in a derived class, sets the asymmetric algorithm to use to create the signature.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
