SymmetricKey Class

The SymmetricKey object represents a Microsoft SQL Server symmetric key.

Namespace: Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo
Assembly: Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in microsoft.sqlserver.smo.dll)

public sealed class SymmetricKey : NamedSmoObject, IAlterable, IDroppable, IObjectPermission
public final class SymmetricKey extends NamedSmoObject implements IAlterable, IDroppable, 
	IObjectPermission
public final class SymmetricKey extends NamedSmoObject implements IAlterable, IDroppable, 
	IObjectPermission

This namespace, class, or member is supported only in version 2.0 of the Microsoft .NET Framework.

To get SymmetricKey object properties, users can be a member of the public fixed server role.

To set SymmetricKey object properties, users must have ALTER permission on the symmetric key.

To create a symmetric key, users must have ALTER ANY SYMMETRIC KEY permissions on the parent database.

To drop a symmetric key, users must have CONTROL permissions on the symmetric key.

To open the symmetric key, users must know the password used to encrypt the symmetric key. CONTROL permission is also required on the certificate or other symmetric key when used to open the specified symmetric key.

To grant, deny, or revoke permissions on the symmetric key to other users, users must have CONTROL permissions on the symmetric key.


Any public static (Shared in Microsoft Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
