RijndaelManaged Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the RijndaelManaged class.

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

public RijndaelManaged()

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

This class is not compliant with the FIPS algorithm.

The following example creates a new instance of the RijndaelManaged class.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Security.Cryptography;
