ECDiffieHellman.SignatureAlgorithm Property

Gets the name of the signature algorithm.

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

abstract SignatureAlgorithm : string
override SignatureAlgorithm : string

Property Value

Type: System.String
Always a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This property is inherited from the AsymmetricAlgorithm base class.

The Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) algorithm is used for key derivation, not digital signature generation. Therefore, this property returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
