SYMPTOMS

When you use a smart card Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) together with the RSACryptoServiceProvider.SignData method in the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, you may receive the following error message:
CryptographicException thrown in SignData method when using certificate object with private key stored on a smart card. Exception message: "Hash not valid for use in specified state" Exception error code: 0x8009000C
This problem occurs if the CSP encapsulates the Microsoft Enhanced CSP to support the smart card. For example, if you use the Schlumberger CSP that is included in Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2 together with the RSACryptoServiceProvider.SignData method, this problem occurs.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because of a conflict between the CSP and the .NET Framework 2.0 that occurs when the size of the CSP-generated hash is being verified.
