Property Value

Type: System.String
The type of encryption used to encrypt sensitive membership information.

At run time, the membership system binds to the appropriate hash algorithm type, and then uses this type when encrypting membership information. If the HashAlgorithmType property is not set, the membership system defaults to the Validation property within the MachineKeySection class.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the HashAlgorithmType property. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the MembershipSection class.

// Display HashAlgorithmType value.
Console.WriteLine("HashAlgorithmType: {0}",
