RSACryptoServiceProvider.CspKeyContainerInfo Property

Gets a CspKeyContainerInfo object that describes additional information about a cryptographic key pair.

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

[<ComVisibleAttribute(false)>]

[<ComVisibleAttribute(false)>]
override CspKeyContainerInfo : CspKeyContainerInfo

Property Value

Type: System.Security.Cryptography.CspKeyContainerInfo
A CspKeyContainerInfo object that describes additional information about a cryptographic key pair.

Implements

ICspAsymmetricAlgorithm.CspKeyContainerInfo

Use the CspKeyContainerInfo property to retrieve additional information about a cryptographic key pair. The returned CspKeyContainerInfo object describes whether the key is exportable, and specifies the key container name, information about the provider, and other information.

In cases where a random key is generated, a key container will not be created until you call a method that uses the key. Some properties of the CspKeyContainerInfo object returned by the CspKeyContainerInfo property will throw a CryptographicException if a key container has not been created. To make sure that a key container has been created, call a method such as Encrypt, Decrypt, SignData, SignHash, and so on, before you call the CspKeyContainerInfo property.

The following code example demonstrates how to call the CspKeyContainerInfo property.
