RSACryptoServiceProvider.UseMachineKeyStore Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the key should be persisted in the computer's key store instead of the user profile store.

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

public static bool UseMachineKeyStore { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the key should be persisted in the computer key store; otherwise, false.

Setting this property to true is equivalent to passing the UseMachineKeyStore flag to a CspParameters object. The UseMachineKeyStore property applies to all code in the current application domain, whereas the CspParameters object applies only to classes that explicitly reference it. These settings are useful when impersonating or running under an account whose user profile is not loaded. Setting UseMachineKeyStore affects the key store location only if RSACryptoServiceProvider is initialized with no parameters.
