Property Value

Type: System.String
An alternate name for the key. If the key is ephemeral, the value is null.

This property gets an alternate name that can be used when accessing the key. You can use this property if the original key name does not uniquely identify the persisted key. The MicrosoftSoftwareKeyStorageProvider property will return the file name of the key as this property. The name returned by the MicrosoftSmartCardKeyStorageProvider is implementation-dependent.
