Imports the specified RSAParameters.

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

public override void ImportParameters(
	RSAParameters parameters
)

Parameters

parameters
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.RSAParameters

The parameters for RSA.

ExceptionCondition
CryptographicException

The cryptographic service provider (CSP) cannot be acquired.

-or-

The parameters parameter has missing fields.

The following code example imports key information created from an RSAParameters object into an RSACryptoServiceProvider object.

try
{
    //Create a new RSACryptoServiceProvider object.  
    using (RSACryptoServiceProvider RSA = new RSACryptoServiceProvider())
    {
        //Export the key information to an RSAParameters object. 
        //Pass false to export the public key information or pass 
        //true to export public and private key information.
        RSAParameters RSAParams = RSA.ExportParameters(false);

        //Create another RSACryptoServiceProvider object. 
        using (RSACryptoServiceProvider RSA2 = new RSACryptoServiceProvider())
        {
        //Import the the key information from the other  
        //RSACryptoServiceProvider object.  
        RSA2.ImportParameters(RSAParams);
        }
    }


}
catch (CryptographicException e)
{
    //Catch this exception in case the encryption did 
    //not succeed.
    Console.WriteLine(e.Message);
