Member nameDescription
DefaultKeySet

The default key set is used. The user key set is usually the default.

Exportable

Imported keys are marked as exportable.

MachineKeySet

Private keys are stored in the local computer store rather than the current user store.

PersistKeySet

The key associated with a PFX file is persisted when importing a certificate.

UserKeySet

Private keys are stored in the current user store rather than the local computer store. This occurs even if the certificate specifies that the keys should go in the local computer store.

UserProtected

Notify the user through a dialog box or other method that the key is accessed. The Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) in use defines the precise behavior.
