SmimeEncryptionAlgorithm Property
Gets or sets the algorithm to use for encrypting messages.

Namespace: MailBee.Security
Assembly: MailBee.NET (in MailBee.NET.dll) Version: 11.2.0 build 590 for .NET 4.5
public Algorithm EncryptionAlgorithm { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Algorithm
A reference to Algorithm object representing the algorithm to be used for encrypting messages. The default algorithm is RSA DES (szOID_RSA_DES_EDE3_CBC).
MailBeeInvalidArgumentExceptionvalue is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Usually, there is no need to change the default value of this property.

In order to set this property, the developer can get Algorithm instance using CreateInstanceByOid(String) or CreateInstanceById(Int32) methods.

This sample sets DES encryption algorithm if it's supported by the operating system.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespace at the top of your code
using MailBee.Security;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class)

Smime objSmime = new Smime();
Algorithm[] algs = objSmime.Provider.GetSupportedAlgorithms();
Algorithm algDes = null;

// Iterate through all encryption algorithms supported by CSP
foreach (Algorithm alg in algs)
    if (alg.Name.ToLower() == "des")
        algDes = alg;
if (algDes != null)
    objSmime.EncryptionAlgorithm = algDes;
