public class DSAKeyValue : KeyInfoClause


The System.Security.Cryptography.Xml.KeyInfo class represents the <KeyInfo> element, which contains a System.Security.Cryptography.DSA public key.

Use System.Security.Cryptography.Xml.DSAKeyValue to identify the public key that corresponds to the System.Security.Cryptography.DSA private key that was used to create the digital signature.

If a key is not explicitly supplied to the constructor, a new System.Security.Cryptography.DSA key pair is randomly generated.

The System.Security.Cryptography.Xml.DSAKeyValue class is used with XML signatures. For more information about the W3C specification, see
