DSA Members

Represents the abstract base class from which all implementations of the Digital Signature Algorithm (DSA) must inherit.

The following tables list the members exposed by the DSA type.

  Name Description
Protected method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework DSA Initializes a new instance of the DSA class.
Top

  Name Description
Protected field Supported by the .NET Compact Framework KeySizeValue  Represents the size, in bits, of the key modulus used by the asymmetric algorithm.(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)
Protected field Supported by the .NET Compact Framework LegalKeySizesValue  Specifies the key sizes that are supported by the asymmetric algorithm.(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)
Top

  Name Description
Public property Supported by the .NET Compact Framework KeyExchangeAlgorithm  When overridden in a derived class, gets the name of the key exchange algorithm.(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public property Supported by the .NET Compact Framework KeySize  Gets or sets the size, in bits, of the key modulus used by the asymmetric algorithm.(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public property Supported by the .NET Compact Framework LegalKeySizes  Gets the key sizes that are supported by the asymmetric algorithm.(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public property Supported by the .NET Compact Framework SignatureAlgorithm  Gets the name of the signature algorithm.(Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)

(see also Protected Methods )
  Name Description
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework Clear  Releases all resources used by the AsymmetricAlgorithm class. (Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public method Static Supported by the .NET Compact Framework Create Overloaded. Creates a cryptographic object used to perform the asymmetric algorithm.
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework CreateSignature When overridden in a derived class, creates the DSA signature for the specified data.
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework Equals  Overloaded. Determines whether two Object instances are equal. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework ExportParameters When overridden in a derived class, exports the DSAParameters.
Public method FromXmlString Overridden. Reconstructs a DSA object from an XML string.
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework GetHashCode  Serves as a hash function for a particular type. GetHashCode is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework GetType  Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework ImportParameters When overridden in a derived class, imports the specified DSAParameters.
Public method Static Supported by the .NET Compact Framework ReferenceEquals  Determines whether the specified Object instances are the same instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework ToString  Returns a String that represents the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToXmlString Overridden. Creates and returns an XML string representation of the current DSA object.
Public method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework VerifySignature When overridden in a derived class, verifies the DSA signature for the specified data.

  Name Description
Protected method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework Dispose  When overridden in a derived class, releases the unmanaged resources used by the AsymmetricAlgorithm and optionally releases the managed resources. (Inherited from AsymmetricAlgorithm.)
Protected method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework Finalize  Allows an Object to attempt to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method Supported by the .NET Compact Framework MemberwiseClone  Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
