PKCS1MaskGenerationMethod Class

Computes masks according to PKCS #1 for use by key exchange algorithms.


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

public class PKCS1MaskGenerationMethod : MaskGenerationMethod

The PKCS1MaskGenerationMethod type exposes the following members.

Public methodPKCS1MaskGenerationMethodInitializes a new instance of the PKCS1MaskGenerationMethod class.

Public propertyHashNameGets or sets the name of the hash algorithm type to use for generating the mask.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGenerateMaskGenerates and returns a mask from the specified random seed of the specified length. (Overrides MaskGenerationMethod.GenerateMask(Byte[], Int32).)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This class is only used by implementations of key exchange algorithms for mask generation. Application code does not use this class directly.
