Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

This class is used to verify a digital signature made with the RSA algorithm.

Use RSAPKCS1SignatureFormatter to create digital signatures with the RSA algorithm.
