<ST_AlgClass> (Cryptographic Algorithm Classes)

This simple type specifies the possible classes of cryptographic algorithm used by protection.
Note: : The initial version of this Office Open XML Standard only supports a single version - hash - but future versions may expand this as necessary.
<w:… w:cryptAlgorithmClass="hash" 
  w:hash="9oN7nWkCAyEZib1RomSJTjmPpCY=" />

The @cryptAlgorithmClass attribute value of hash specifies that the algorithm used for the password is a hashing algorithm. ]

This simple type's contents are a restriction of the XML Schema string datatype.

The following are possible enumeration values for this type:

Enumeration Value


<hash> (Hashing)

Specifies that the algorithm is a hashing function, which creates a hash value for user-supplied input that is very difficult to reverse-engineer.
