Key size of Rijndael on iOS same as in .NET?

looking at this question on SO:

Is the default key size on iOS also 256 Bit if I construct the symmetric algorithm like that:

SymmetricAlgorithm algorithm = SymmetricAlgorithm.Create ( "Rijndael" );

    The default key size should be identical any way you create the same instance (otherwise it's a bug :-)

    And doing SymmetricAlgorithm.Create("Rijndael") and new RijndaelManaged(); are identical (even more in MonoTouch where you cannot dynamically load code with CryptoConfig).
