SecurityKeyElement Class

.NET Framework 4.5

Provides delayed resolution of security keys by resolving the SecurityKeyIdentifierClause or SecurityKeyIdentifier only when cryptographic functions are needed. This allows a key identifier clause or key identifier that is never used by an application to be serialized and deserialzied on and off the wire without issues.

System.Object
  System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityKey
    System.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityKeyElement

Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Tokens
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)
public class SecurityKeyElement : SecurityKey

The SecurityKeyElement type exposes the following members.
