Cryptography Settings Schema

The cryptography settings schema contains elements that specify how to map friendly algorithm names to classes that implement cryptography algorithms.

<configuration>

<mscorlib>

<cryptographySettings>

<cryptoNameMapping>

<cryptoClasses>

<cryptoClass>

<nameEntry>

<oidMap>

<oidEntry>

Element Description
<cryptoClasses> Contains a list of cryptography classes that have a mapping to a friendly name in the <nameEntry> element.
<cryptoClass> Contains a cryptography class that has a mapping to a friendly name in the <nameEntry> element.
<cryptographySettings> Contains cryptography settings.
<cryptoNameMapping> Contains mappings of classes to friendly names.
<mscorlib> element for cryptography settings Contains the <cryptographySettings> element.
<nameEntry> Maps a class name to a friendly algorithm name, which allows one class to have many friendly names.
<oidEntry> Maps an ASN.1 object identifier (OID) to a friendly name.
<oidMap> Contains ASN.1 OID mappings to classes.
