Remarks

Use this class to obtain additional information about a key pair, such as the key container name or the key number.

In cases where a random key is generated by the RSACryptoServiceProvider or the DSACryptoServiceProvider, a key container will not be created until you call a method that uses the key. Some properties of the CspKeyContainerInfo class will throw a CryptographicException if a key container has not been created.
