  NameDescription
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 methodGenerateMaskWhen overridden in a derived class, generates a mask with the specified length using the specified random seed.
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.)

Derived classes of MaskGenerationMethod compute masks that are used in key exchange algorithms such as Optimal Asymmetric Encryption Padding (OAEP).

This class is used by implementations of key exchange algorithms only for mask generation. Application code does not use this class directly.
