MD5.Create Method

Definition

Allows specific implementations of this abstract class to be created.

Overloads

Create()

Creates an instance of the default implementation of the MD5 hash algorithm.

Create(String)

Creates an instance of the specified implementation of the MD5 hash algorithm.

Create()

Creates an instance of the default implementation of the MD5 hash algorithm.

public:
 static System::Security::Cryptography::MD5 ^ Create();
public static System.Security.Cryptography.MD5 Create ();
static member Create : unit -> System.Security.Cryptography.MD5
Public Shared Function Create () As MD5

Returns

MD5

A new instance of the MD5 hash algorithm.

Exceptions

The algorithm was used with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode enabled, but is not FIPS compatible.

Create(String)

Creates an instance of the specified implementation of the MD5 hash algorithm.

public:
 static System::Security::Cryptography::MD5 ^ Create(System::String ^ algName);
public static System.Security.Cryptography.MD5 Create (string algName);
static member Create : string -> System.Security.Cryptography.MD5
Public Shared Function Create (algName As String) As MD5

Parameters

algName
String

The name of the specific implementation of MD5 to use.

Returns

MD5

A new instance of the specified implementation of MD5.

Exceptions

The algorithm described by the algName parameter was used with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) mode enabled, but is not FIPS compatible.

Remarks

Possible values for algName are: System.Security.Cryptography.MD5, MD5, System.Security.Cryptography.MD5CryptoServiceProvider, and System.Security.Cryptography.MD5Managed.
