Sorry for spamming the list a bit, but I think this is quite big chunk 
of code so it's worth to note

These classes are now also in GitHub in my repository.

The corresponding unit tests can be found in another commit.

Only thing worth to mention was the CngProperty.GetHashCode() method, it 
should be similar to the .NET method and I figured it out by creating a 
lot of CngProperty objects and changing the constructor parameters a bit 
one at the time. I got different GetHashCode() values on .NET and Mono, 
but that might have been some language issue on the String.GetHashCode().

I'll give you guys time to review all this and after getting some 
comments I will start working on the ECDiffieHellman* and ECDsa* classes 
that will most likely take a bit more time to finish.
