Public Shared Function Create () As KeyedHashAlgorithm

Returns

KeyedHashAlgorithm

A new HMACSHA1 instance, unless the default settings have been changed.

Attributes

Remarks

By default, this overload uses the HMACSHA1 implementation of a keyed hash algorithm. If you want to specify a different implementation, use the Create(String) overload, which lets you specify an algorithm name, instead. The cryptography configuration system defines the default implementation of the KeyedHashAlgorithm class.

Due to collision problems with SHA1, Microsoft recommends a security model based on SHA256 or better.
