CryptoProvider Class

Provides digital rights management services for encrypting and decrypting protected content.

Namespace:  System.Security.RightsManagement
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public class CryptoProvider : IDisposable
You cannot directly create an instance of this class in XAML.

CryptoProvider is created as a result of the Bind method when binding a rights managed UseLicense to a SecureEnvironment.

As with other System.Security.RightsManagement types, CryptoProvider is only usable in full trust applications.

The following example shows how to use the CryptoProvider class to create an EncryptedPackageEnvelope. 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;
}
