[Visual Basic]
Public Class RSAPKCS1SignatureFormatter
   Inherits AsymmetricSignatureFormatter
[C#]
public class RSAPKCS1SignatureFormatter :

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.

Remarks

This class is used to create a digital signature using the RSA algorithm.

Use RSAPKCS1SignatureDeformatter to verify digital signatures with the RSA algorithm.
