EncryptedData.Algorithm property

[CAPICOM is a 32-bit only component that is available for use in the following operating systems: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. Instead, use Platform Invocation Services (PInvoke) to call the Win32 API functions CryptEncryptMessage and CryptDecryptMessage to encrypt and decrypt messages. For information about PInvoke, see Platform Invoke Tutorial. The .NET and CryptoAPI via P/Invoke: Part 1 and .NET and CryptoAPI via P/Invoke: Part 2 subsections of Extending .NET Cryptography with CAPICOM and P/Invoke may also be helpful.]

The Algorithm property retrieves the algorithm for the encrypted data.

This property is read-only.
