AsymmetricSignatureFormatter Class

AsymmetricSignatureFormatter Class

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Represents the base class from which all implementations of asymmetric signature formatters derive.


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

public abstract class AsymmetricSignatureFormatter

The AsymmetricSignatureFormatter type exposes the following members.

Protected methodAsymmetricSignatureFormatterInitializes a new instance of AsymmetricSignatureFormatter.

Public methodCreateSignature(Byte[])When overridden in a derived class, creates the signature for the specified data.
Public methodCreateSignature(HashAlgorithm)Creates the signature from the specified hash value.
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 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 methodSetHashAlgorithmWhen overridden in a derived class, sets the hash algorithm to use for creating the signature.
Public methodSetKeyWhen overridden in a derived class, sets the asymmetric algorithm to use to create the signature.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Asymmetric signature formatters create digital signatures that are verified using implementations of AsymmetricSignatureDeformatter.
