public virtual string GetKeyAlgorithm()

Return Value

Type: System.String

The key algorithm information for this X.509 certificate as a string.

Exception Condition
CryptographicException

The certificate context is invalid.

The following example uses the GetKeyAlgorithm method to get a certificate's key algorithm in string format and displays it to the console.


using System;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;


public class X509
{

    public static void Main()
    {

        // The path to the certificate.
        string Certificate =  "Certificate.cer";

        // Load the certificate into an X509Certificate object.
        X509Certificate cert = X509Certificate.CreateFromCertFile(Certificate);

        // Get the value.
        string results = cert.GetKeyAlgorithm();

        // Display the value to the console.
        Console.WriteLine(results);

    }
