Hellman Key Derivation Function Enum
Specifies the key derivation function that the ECDiffieHellmanCng class will use to convert secret agreements into key material.

A hash algorithm is used to generate key material. The HashAlgorithm property specifies the name of the algorithm to use. If the algorithm name is not specified, SHA256 is used as the default algorithm. You can also specify the SecretPrepend and SecretAppend properties, but they are not required. The amount of key material that is generated is equivalent to the size of the hash value for the specified algorithm.
A Hash-based Message Authentication Code (HMAC) algorithm is used to generate key material. The HmacKey property specifies the key to use. Either this property must be set or the UseSecretAgreementAsHmacKey property must be set to
The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol is used to generate key material. The Seed and Label properties must be set; otherwise, a CryptographicException is thrown when you use Tls. This value generates 160 bits of key material.
ECDiffieHellmanKeyDerivationFunction enumeration defines the type of algorithm that will be used to transform a raw secret agreement into key material. The secret agreement is the value that is generated from a private key and the other party's public key, as part of the key exchange. It is the seed value for the key material that is generated by the ECDiffieHellmanCng.DeriveKeyMaterial method.
