RSAPKCS1SignatureDeformatter Class


Verifies an RSA PKCS #1 version 1.5 signature.

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


Public Class RSAPKCS1SignatureDeformatter
	Inherits AsymmetricSignatureDeformatter


Initializes a new instance of the RSAPKCS1SignatureDeformatter class.


Initializes a new instance of the RSAPKCS1SignatureDeformatter class with the specified key.


Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)


Sets the hash algorithm to use for verifying the signature.(Overrides AsymmetricSignatureDeformatter.SetHashAlgorithm(String).)


Sets the public key to use for verifying the signature.(Overrides AsymmetricSignatureDeformatter.SetKey(AsymmetricAlgorithm).)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodVerifySignature(Byte(), Byte())

Verifies the RSA PKCS#1 signature for the specified data.(Overrides AsymmetricSignatureDeformatter.VerifySignature(Byte(), Byte()).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodVerifySignature(HashAlgorithm, Byte())

Verifies the signature from the specified hash value.(Inherited from AsymmetricSignatureDeformatter.)

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

Use RSAPKCS1SignatureFormatter to create digital signatures with the RSA algorithm.

The following example demonstrates how to use the VerifySignature method to verify a signature.
