Attributes and Elements

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



Child Elements

Element Description
<oidEntry> Maps an ASN.1 OID to a friendly name.

Parent Elements

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


The following example shows how to use the <oidMap> element to contain a mapping of an OID for the RIPEMD-160 hash algorithm to an implementation of that hash algorithm.

               <cryptoClass   MyCrypto="MyCryptoClass, MyAssembly  
                  Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=a5d015c7d5a0b012,  
            <nameEntry name="RIPEMD-160" class="MyCrypto"/>  
            <oidEntry OID=""  name="MyCryptoClass"/>
