SymmetricAlgorithm.CreateEncryptor Method (array<Byte[], array<Byte[])

When overridden in a derived class, creates a symmetric encryptor object with the specified Key property and initialization vector (IV).

Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)


Public MustOverride Function CreateEncryptor ( _
    rgbKey As Byte(), _
    rgbIV As Byte() _
) As ICryptoTransform
public abstract ICryptoTransform CreateEncryptor(
    byte[] rgbKey,
    byte[] rgbIV


  • rgbKey
    Type: array<System.Byte[]
    The secret key to use for the symmetric algorithm.
  • rgbIV
    Type: array<System.Byte[]
    The initialization vector to use for the symmetric algorithm.

Return Value

Type: System.Security.Cryptography.ICryptoTransform
A symmetric encryptor object.


Use the CreateDecryptor overload with the same parameters to decrypt the result of this method.
