DSACng.Key Property


Gets the key that will be used by the DSACng object for any cryptographic operation that it performs.

 property System::Security::Cryptography::CngKey ^ Key { System::Security::Cryptography::CngKey ^ get(); };
public System.Security.Cryptography.CngKey Key { get; }
member this.Key : System.Security.Cryptography.CngKey
Public ReadOnly Property Key As CngKey

Property Value


The key used by the DSACng object to perform cryptographic operations.


The CngKey object is disposed if the key is reset, for instance by changing the CngKey.KeySize property, by using the DSACng.ImportParameters method to create a new key, or by disposing the parent DSACng object. Therefore, you should ensure that the key object is no longer used in these cases.

This CngKey object is not the same as the CngKey object passed to the DSACng constructor, if that constructor was used. However, it will point to the same CNG key.
