DefaultPropertiesToSend.HashAlgorithm DefaultPropertiesToSend.HashAlgorithm DefaultPropertiesToSend.HashAlgorithm DefaultPropertiesToSend.HashAlgorithm Property


Gets or sets the hashing algorithm used when authenticating messages or creating a digital signature for a message.

 property System::Messaging::HashAlgorithm HashAlgorithm { System::Messaging::HashAlgorithm get(); void set(System::Messaging::HashAlgorithm value); };
public System.Messaging.HashAlgorithm HashAlgorithm { get; set; }
member this.HashAlgorithm : System.Messaging.HashAlgorithm with get, set
Public Property HashAlgorithm As HashAlgorithm

Property Value

One of the HashAlgorithm enumeration values. The default is MD5.


The HashAlgorithm property identifies the hashing algorithm Message Queuing uses when authenticating messages or when creating a digital signature for a message.

Message Queuing on the source computer uses the hashing algorithm when creating a digital signature for a message. The target Queue Manager then uses the same hashing algorithm to authenticate the message when it is received.

Due to collision problems with MD5, Microsoft recommends SHA256.
