CspKeyContainerInfo Class

CspKeyContainerInfo Class

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

Provides additional information about a cryptographic key pair. This class cannot be inherited.


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

public sealed class CspKeyContainerInfo

The CspKeyContainerInfo type exposes the following members.

Public methodCspKeyContainerInfoInitializes a new instance of the CspKeyContainerInfo class using the specified parameters.

Public propertyKeyContainerNameGets a key container name.
Public propertyKeyNumberGets a value that describes whether an asymmetric key was created as a signature key or an exchange key.
Public propertyMachineKeyStoreGets a value indicating whether a key is from a machine key set.
Public propertyProviderNameGets the provider name of a key.
Public propertyProviderTypeGets the provider type of a key.
Public propertyRandomlyGeneratedGets a value indicating whether a key container was randomly generated by a managed cryptography class.

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 methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Use this class to obtain additional information about a key pair, such as the key container name or the key number.

In cases where a random key is generated by the RSACryptoServiceProvider, a key container will not be created until you call a method that uses the key. Some properties of the CspKeyContainerInfo class will throw a CryptographicException if a key container has not been created.
