Gets the name of the signature algorithm.

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

public override string SignatureAlgorithm { get; }

Type: System.String
Always null.

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 null.
