RightsManagementInformation Class

Represents Digital Rights Management (DRM) information that is stored in an EncryptedPackageEnvelope.

Namespace:  System.IO.Packaging
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)
public class RightsManagementInformation
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

RightsManagementInformation provides access to the PublishLicense and UseLicense data stored in a rights managed protected Package.

The following example shows how to initialize a RightsManagementInformation object for encryption. For the full sample, see Rights Managed Package Publish Sample.

WriteStatus("   Signing the UnsignedPublishLicense\n" +
            "       to build the PublishLicense.");
UseLicense authorsUseLicense;
PublishLicense publishLicense =
    unsignedLicense.Sign(_secureEnv, out authorsUseLicense);

WriteStatus("   Binding the author's UseLicense and");
WriteStatus("       obtaining the CryptoProvider.");
CryptoProvider cryptoProvider = authorsUseLicense.Bind(_secureEnv);

WriteStatus("   Creating the EncryptedPackage.");
Stream packageStream = File.OpenRead(packageFile);
EncryptedPackageEnvelope ePackage =
    EncryptedPackageEnvelope.CreateFromPackage(encryptedFile,
        packageStream, publishLicense, cryptoProvider);

WriteStatus("   Adding an author's UseLicense.");
RightsManagementInformation rmi =
    ePackage.RightsManagementInformation;
rmi.SaveUseLicense(author, authorsUseLicense);

ePackage.Close();
WriteStatus("   Done - Package encryption complete.");

WriteStatus("Verifying package encryption.");
if (EncryptedPackageEnvelope.IsEncryptedPackageEnvelope(encryptedFile))
{
    WriteStatus("   Confirmed - '" + encryptedFilename +
                "' is encrypted.");
}
else
{
    MessageBox.Show("ERROR: '" + encryptedFilename +
        "' is NOT ENCRYPTED.", "Encryption Error",
        MessageBoxButton.OK, MessageBoxImage.Error);
    WriteStatus("ERROR: '" + encryptedFilename +
                "' is NOT ENCRYPTED.\n");
    return false;
}

The following example shows how to initialize a RightsManagementInformation object for decryption. For the full sample, see Rights Managed Package Viewer Sample.

ShowStatus("   Opening the encrypted Package.");
EncryptedPackageEnvelope ePackage =
    EncryptedPackageEnvelope.Open(xpsFile, FileAccess.ReadWrite);
RightsManagementInformation rmi =
    ePackage.RightsManagementInformation;

ShowStatus("   Looking for an embedded UseLicense for user:\n       " +
           currentUserId + " [" + _authentication + "]");
UseLicense useLicense =
    rmi.LoadUseLicense(
        new ContentUser(currentUserId, _authentication));

ReadOnlyCollection<ContentGrant> grants;
if (useLicense == null)
{
    ShowStatus("   No Embedded UseLicense found.\n       " +
               "Attempting to acqure UseLicnese\n       " +
               "from the PublishLicense.");
    PublishLicense pubLicense = rmi.LoadPublishLicense();

    ShowStatus("   Referral information:");

    if (pubLicense.ReferralInfoName == null)
        ShowStatus("       Name: (null)");
    else
        ShowStatus("       Name: " + pubLicense.ReferralInfoName);

    if (pubLicense.ReferralInfoUri == null)
        ShowStatus("    Uri: (null)");
    else
        ShowStatus("    Uri: " +
            pubLicense.ReferralInfoUri.ToString());

    useLicense = pubLicense.AcquireUseLicense(_secureEnv);
    if (useLicense == null)
    {
        ShowStatus("   User DOES NOT HAVE RIGHTS\n       " +
            "to access this document!");
        return false;
    }
}// end:if (useLicense == null)
ShowStatus("   UseLicense acquired.");
