C#
public byte[] ExtendShortKey(
	byte[] shortKey,
	byte[] password,
	byte[] engineID,
	IAuthenticationDigest authProtocol
)
Visual Basic (Declaration)
Public Function ExtendShortKey ( _
	shortKey As Byte(), _
	password As Byte(), _
	engineID As Byte(), _
	authProtocol As IAuthenticationDigest _
) As Byte()

public:
virtual array<unsigned char>^ ExtendShortKey(
	array<unsigned char>^ shortKey, 
	array<unsigned char>^ password, 
	array<unsigned char>^ engineID, 
	IAuthenticationDigest^ authProtocol
) sealed

Parameters

shortKey
Type: array< System..::.Byte >[]()[]
