It was MonoDoc, describing that the class is a wrapper for the Windows
CryptoAPI and thus only available for Win32. But I obviously overlooked
the second entry for the CryptoProviders which states that they're also
implemented in a general fashion.

Thank you for your information. (:
By the way it seems that
System.Web.Security.FormsAuthentication.HashPasswordForStoringInConfigFile is an easy wrapper for the hashing algorithms. But I'll switch to the clean(tm) way then.

I appreciate all the work done with the Mono documentation project. ;o)
By the way I wasn't able to sign up my email address for contributions.
