ProviderAlgorithm Class

Note: This API is now obsolete.

The ProviderAlgorithm interface represents an algorithm implemented by a cryptographic provider. Providers are separate modules that implement encryption, hashing, signing, and key exchange (archival) algorithms. Similar providers are grouped together in a type.

Gets the default length of a key.
Public propertyIncrementLength
Gets a value, in bits, that can be used to determine valid incremental key lengths for algorithms that support multiple key sizes.
Public propertyIsValid
Gets a Boolean value that specifies whether the algorithm object is valid.
Public propertyLongName
Gets the full name of the algorithm.
Public propertyMaxLength
