RSAOAEPKeyExchangeFormatter.SetKey Method

Sets the public key to use for encrypting the key exchange data.

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

Public Overrides Sub SetKey ( _
	key As AsymmetricAlgorithm _
Dim instance As RSAOAEPKeyExchangeFormatter
Dim key As AsymmetricAlgorithm

public void SetKey (
	AsymmetricAlgorithm key
public override function SetKey (
	key : AsymmetricAlgorithm



The instance of the RSA algorithm that holds the public key.

You must set the key before calling CreateKeyExchange.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the SetKey method to set an RSA key for decryption. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the RSAOAEPKeyExchangeFormatter class.

Dim key As RSA = RSA.Create()

RSA key = RSA.Create();
