SymmetricAlgorithm.CreateEncryptor Method (Byte[], Byte[])

When overridden in a derived class, creates a symmetric encryptor object with the specified Key property and initialization vector (IV).

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

'Declaration
Public MustOverride Function CreateEncryptor ( _
	rgbKey As Byte(), _
	rgbIV As Byte() _
) As ICryptoTransform
'Usage
Dim instance As SymmetricAlgorithm
Dim rgbKey As Byte()
Dim rgbIV As Byte()
Dim returnValue As ICryptoTransform

returnValue = instance.CreateEncryptor(rgbKey, rgbIV)
public abstract ICryptoTransform CreateEncryptor (
	byte[] rgbKey, 
	byte[] rgbIV
)
public abstract function CreateEncryptor (
	rgbKey : byte[], 
	rgbIV : byte[]
) : ICryptoTransform

Parameters

rgbKey

The secret key to use for the symmetric algorithm.

rgbIV

The initialization vector to use for the symmetric algorithm.

Return Value

A symmetric encryptor object.

Use the CreateDecryptor overload with the same parameters to decrypt the result of this method.
