TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider Class

Defines a wrapper object to access the cryptographic service provider (CSP) version of the TripleDES algorithm. This class cannot be inherited.

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

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public ref class TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider sealed : public TripleDES
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public final class TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider extends TripleDES
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public final class TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider extends TripleDES
Not applicable.

This algorithm supports key lengths from 128 bits to 192 bits in increments of 64 bits.

The following code example creates a TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider object and uses it to encrypt and decrypt data in a file.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography;
using namespace System::Text;
using namespace System::IO;

      // Create or open the specified file.
      FileStream^ fStream = File::Open( FileName, FileMode::OpenOrCreate );
      
      // Create a CryptoStream using the FileStream 
      // and the passed key and initialization vector (IV).
      CryptoStream^ cStream = gcnew CryptoStream( fStream,(gcnew TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider)->CreateEncryptor( Key, IV ),CryptoStreamMode::Write );
      
      // Create a StreamWriter using the CryptoStream.
      StreamWriter^ sWriter = gcnew StreamWriter( cStream );
      
      // Write the data to the stream 
      // to encrypt it.
      sWriter->WriteLine( Data );
      
      // Close the streams and
      // close the file.

   }
   catch ( UnauthorizedAccessException^ e )

      return nullptr;
   }

}
