Issue Description

FIX: Error message in FIPS-compliant systems when you use Windows Communication Foundation to serialize generic types: "This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms"


SYMPTOMS
In Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS)-compliant systems, you receive the following error message when you use Microsoft Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to serialize generic types:
System.InvalidOperationException: This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.

CAUSE
This problem occurs because the MD5 algorithm is not FIPS compliant. The MD5 algorithm uses Windows Communication Foundation to obtain a hash value. The hash value generates a unique name for a data contract.
