DSACryptoServiceProvider Constructor (Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the DSACryptoServiceProvider class with the specified key size.

Namespace: System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public DSACryptoServiceProvider (
	int dwKeySize
)
public DSACryptoServiceProvider (
	int dwKeySize
)
public function DSACryptoServiceProvider (
	dwKeySize : int
)

Parameters

dwKeySize

The size of the key for the asymmetric algorithm in bits.

The following code example creates a DSACryptoServiceProvider, generates a new key pair, and persists it to a key container.
