  NameDescription
Public methodClearReleases all resources used by the SymmetricAlgorithm class. (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public methodCreateDecryptor()Creates a symmetric decryptor object with the current Key property and initialization vector (IV). (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public methodCreateDecryptor(Byte[], Byte[])When overridden in a derived class, creates a symmetric decryptor object with the specified Key property and initialization vector (IV). (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public methodCreateEncryptor()Creates a symmetric encryptor object with the current Key property and initialization vector (IV). (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public methodCreateEncryptor(Byte[], Byte[])When overridden in a derived class, creates a symmetric encryptor object with the specified Key property and initialization vector (IV). (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Protected methodDisposeReleases the unmanaged resources used by the SymmetricAlgorithm and optionally releases the managed resources. (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGenerateIVWhen overridden in a derived class, generates a random initialization vector (IV) to use for the algorithm. (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public methodGenerateKeyWhen overridden in a derived class, generates a random key (Key) to use for the algorithm. (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodValidKeySizeDetermines whether the specified key size is valid for the current algorithm. (Inherited from SymmetricAlgorithm.)
