AsymmetricAlgorithm.KeySize AsymmetricAlgorithm.KeySize AsymmetricAlgorithm.KeySize AsymmetricAlgorithm.KeySize Property

Definition

Gets or sets the size, in bits, of the key modulus used by the asymmetric algorithm.

public:
 virtual property int KeySize { int get(); void set(int value); };
public virtual int KeySize { get; set; }
member this.KeySize : int with get, set
Public Overridable Property KeySize As Integer

Property Value

The size, in bits, of the key modulus used by the asymmetric algorithm.

Exceptions

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to override the KeySize property to verify that it falls within the range identified in the local keySizes member variable. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the AsymmetricAlgorithm class.

public:
    property int KeySize
    {
        virtual int get() override
        {
            return KeySizeValue;
        }

        virtual void set(int value) override
        {
            for (int i = 0; i < customValidKeySizes->Length; i++)
            {
                if (customValidKeySizes[i]->SkipSize == 0)
                {
                    if (customValidKeySizes[i]->MinSize == value)
                    {
                        KeySizeValue = value;
                        return;
                    }
                }
                else
                {
                    for (int j = customValidKeySizes[i]->MinSize;
                        j <= customValidKeySizes[i]->MaxSize;
                        j += customValidKeySizes[i]->SkipSize)
                    {

            // in the keySizes member variable, throw an exception.

Remarks

The valid key sizes are specified by the particular implementation of the asymmetric algorithm and are listed in the LegalKeySizes property.
