Examples

The following example shows how to use the VerifyHash method to verify a signature. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SignHash method.

bool VerifyHash( RSAParameters rsaParams, array<Byte>^signedData, array<Byte>^signature )
{
   RSACryptoServiceProvider^ rsaCSP = gcnew RSACryptoServiceProvider;
   SHA1Managed^ hash = gcnew SHA1Managed;
   array<Byte>^hashedData;
   rsaCSP->ImportParameters( rsaParams );
bool dataOK = rsaCSP->VerifyData(signedData, CryptoConfig::MapNameToOID("SHA1"), signature);
   hashedData = hash->ComputeHash( signedData );
   return rsaCSP->VerifyHash( hashedData, CryptoConfig::MapNameToOID( "SHA1" ), signature );
}
public bool VerifyHash(RSAParameters rsaParams, byte[] signedData, byte[] signature)
{
    RSACryptoServiceProvider rsaCSP = new RSACryptoServiceProvider();
    SHA1Managed hash = new SHA1Managed();
    byte[] hashedData;

    rsaCSP.ImportParameters(rsaParams);
    bool dataOK = rsaCSP.VerifyData(signedData, CryptoConfig.MapNameToOID("SHA1"), signature);
    hashedData = hash.ComputeHash(signedData);
    return rsaCSP.VerifyHash(hashedData, CryptoConfig.MapNameToOID("SHA1"), signature);
}
Public Function VerifyHash(ByVal rsaParams As RSAParameters, ByVal signedData() As Byte, ByVal signature() As Byte) As Boolean
    Dim rsaCSP As New RSACryptoServiceProvider()
    Dim hash As New SHA1Managed()
    Dim hashedData() As Byte
    Dim dataOK As Boolean

    rsaCSP.ImportParameters(rsaParams)
    dataOK = rsaCSP.VerifyData(signedData, CryptoConfig.MapNameToOID("SHA1"), signature)
    hashedData = hash.ComputeHash(signedData)
    Return rsaCSP.VerifyHash(hashedData, CryptoConfig.MapNameToOID("SHA1"), signature)
End Function 'VerifyHash

Remarks

This method verifies the RSA digital signature produced by the SignHash method. The signature is verified by obtaining the hash value from the signature using the public key it was signed with, and comparing that value to the hash value of the provided data.

The valid hash algorithms are SHA1 and MD5. The algorithm identifier can be derived from the hash name by using the MapNameToOID method.
