HMACRIPEMD160 Constructor ()


Initializes a new instance of the HMACRIPEMD160 class with a randomly generated 64-byte key.

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

new : unit -> HMACRIPEMD160

HMACRIPEMD160 is a type of keyed hash algorithm that is constructed from the RIPEMD-160 hash function and used as a Hash-based Message Authentication Code (HMAC). The HMAC process mixes a secret key with the message data, hashes the result with the hash function, mixes that hash value with the secret key again, and then applies the hash function a second time. The output hash is 160 bytes in length.

This constructor uses a 64-byte, randomly generated key.
