    Question SHA256.Create

    Experimenting with the SHA256 class and now struggling with the Create method overload that takes the hashname as a parameter
    Code:
    SHA256 alg1 = SHA256.Create(); // returns a default SHA256Managed instance
    SHA256 alg2 = new SHA256Cng(); // returns a SHA256Cng instance
    SHA256 alg3 = SHA256.Create("SHA256Cng"); //always returns null
    Guess I'm not passing a correct string !?!?
    Any suggestions ?

    According to MSDN, you can't get SHA256Cng with the String Create Method:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/we...v=vs.110).aspx

    It doesn't list any additional valid parameters for the SHA256 class.

    Have a look into the ComputeHash method as well
