Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public abstract ICryptoTransform CreateEncryptor(
	byte[] rgbKey,
	byte[] rgbIV


Type: System.Byte[]

The secret key to use for the symmetric algorithm.

Type: System.Byte[]

The initialization vector to use for the symmetric algorithm.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.Cryptography.ICryptoTransform
