System.Security.Cryptography.Rijndael Class

Represents the base class from which all implementations of the System.Security.Cryptography.Rijndael symmetric encryption algorithm must inherit.

public abstract class Rijndael : SymmetricAlgorithm


This algorithm supports key lengths of 128, 192, or 256 bits.

The System.Security.Cryptography.Rijndael class is the predecessor of the System.Security.Cryptography.Aes algorithm. You should use the System.Security.Cryptography.Aes algorithm instead of System.Security.Cryptography.Rijndael. For more information, see the entry tp:// in the .NET Security blog.
