Attributes and Elements

The following sections describe attributes, child elements, and parent elements.

Attributes

None.

Child Elements

Element Description
<cryptoNameMapping> Contains mappings of classes to friendly names.
<oidMap> Contains ASN.1 object identifier (OID) mappings to classes.

Parent Elements

Element Description
configuration The root element in every configuration file used by the common language runtime and .NET Framework applications.
mscorlib Contains the cryptographySettings element.

Example

The following example shows how use the <cryptographySettings> element to contain cryptography name mappings and OID mappings. This example configures the runtime so that HashAlgorithm.Create returns a MyHashClass object and the MyCryptoClass class maps to the object identifier 1.3.36.2.1.

<configuration>  
   <mscorlib>  
      <cryptographySettings>  
         <cryptoNameMapping>  
            <cryptoClasses>  
               <cryptoClass   MyHash="MyHashClass, MyAssembly  
                  Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a5d015c7d5a0b012,  
                  Version=1.0.0.0"/>  
               <cryptoClass   MyCrypto="MyCryptoClass, MyAssembly  
                  Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a5d015c7d5a0b012,  
                  Version=1.0.0.0"/>  
            </cryptoClasses>  
            <nameEntry name="System.Security.Cryptography.HashAlgorithm"  
                       class="MyHash"/>  
         </cryptoNameMapping>  
         <oidMap>  
            <oidEntry OID="1.3.36.3.2.1"   name="MyCryptoClass"/>  
         </oidMap>  
      </cryptographySettings>  
   </mscorlib>  
</configuration>
