KeyedHashAlgorithm

KeyedHashAlgorithmdisposable

System.Security.Cryptography (mscorlib.dll)abstract class
public abstract class KeyedHashAlgorithm : HashAlgorithm { // Protected Constructors    protected KeyedHashAlgorithm(  ); // Protected Instance Fields    protected byte[  ] KeyValue; // Public Instance Properties    public virtual byte[  ] Key{set; get; } // Public Static Methods    public static KeyedHashAlgorithm Create(  );    public static KeyedHashAlgorithm Create(string algName); // Protected Instance Methods    protected override void Dispose(bool disposing);  // overrides HashAlgorithm    protected override void Finalize(  );  // overrides object }

Keyed hash algorithms provide authenticated hash codes by combining a secret key with the data to process. The recipient can validate the hash code only if he knows the secret key.

All keyed hash algorithm implementations inherit from this abstract class, which extends the HashAlgorithm class. Implementation classes are instantiated using the Create( ) method, which accepts the name of an implementation as a System.String argument. The default implementation class is created if no name is specified; the system administrator determines the default class.

In addition to the members defined by the parent class, KeyedHashAlgorithm implements the Key property, which gets and sets the value of the secret key, expressed as a System.Byte array.
