ECDiffieHellmanCng.HashAlgorithm Property


Gets or sets the hash algorithm to use when generating key material.

 property System::Security::Cryptography::CngAlgorithm ^ HashAlgorithm { System::Security::Cryptography::CngAlgorithm ^ get(); void set(System::Security::Cryptography::CngAlgorithm ^ value); };
public System.Security.Cryptography.CngAlgorithm HashAlgorithm { get; set; }

Public Property HashAlgorithm As CngAlgorithm

Property Value

An object that specifies the hash algorithm.


The value is null.


This property is used by Cryptography Next Generation (CNG) objects only if the Hash or Hmac value is set in the KeyDerivationFunction property.

This property accepts the following algorithms: MD5, Sha1, Sha256, Sha384, and Sha512.

Other custom hash algorithms may also be used.

Due to collision problems with MD5 and SHA1, Microsoft recommends Sha256. The default algorithm is Sha256.
