Encapsulates the name of an encryption algorithm group.
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|AlgorithmGroup||Gets the name of the algorithm group that the current CngAlgorithm object specifies.|
|DiffieHellman||Gets a object that specifies the Diffie-Hellman family of algorithms.|
|Dsa||Gets a object that specifies the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) family of algorithms.|
|ECDiffieHellman||Gets a object that specifies the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) family of algorithms.|
|ECDsa||Gets a object that specifies the Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm (ECDSA) family of algorithms.|
|Rsa||Gets a object that specifies the Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) family of algorithms.|
|Equals(CngAlgorithmGroup)||Compares the specified object to the current object.|
|Equals(Object)||Compares the specified object to the current object. (Overrides Object.Equals(Object).)|
|GetHashCode||Generates a hash value for the algorithm group name that is embedded in the current object. (Overrides Object.GetHashCode().)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Gets the name of the algorithm group that the current CngAlgorithm object specifies. (Overrides Object.ToString().)|
The class is a utility class. It consists of static properties, comparison methods, and a private, internally maintained string that defines an algorithm group name.
The static properties return objects. Each object's internal string is initialized to the algorithm group name that corresponds to the name of the static property.
You can also use this class to create objects for algorithm groups that are not covered by the static properties.
Several Cryptography Next Generation (CNG) classes (such as CngKey) return objects. Classes that receive CngAlgorithm objects can retrieve the embedded algorithm group name by calling the object's AlgorithmGroup property.
Therefore, serves as an enumeration of well-known algorithm groups. It lets you specify an algorithm group name by using a strongly typed value instead of a string.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser).
