Theclass is a utility class. It consists of static properties, comparison methods, and a private, internally maintained string that specifies the key BLOB format name.
The static properties returnobjects. Each object's internal string name is initialized to the key BLOB format name that corresponds to the name of the static property.
You can also use this class to create objects for key BLOB formats that are not covered by the static properties.
Several CNG classes (such as CngKey) accept objects through a format parameter. When the class receives the object, it retrieves the embedded name of the key BLOB format by calling the object's Format property.
Therefore,serves as an enumeration of well-known key BLOB formats. It lets you identify a well-known key BLOB format by using a strongly typed value instead of a string.
