KeyAgreeRecipientInfo Members

The KeyAgreeRecipientInfo class defines key agreement recipient information. Key agreement algorithms typically use the Diffie-Hellman key agreement algorithm, in which the two parties that establish a shared cryptographic key both take part in its generation and, by definition, agree on that key. This is in contrast to key transport algorithms, in which one party generates the key unilaterally and sends, or transports it, to the other party.

The following tables list the members exposed by the KeyAgreeRecipientInfo type.

  Name Description
Public property Date The Date property retrieves the date and time of the start of the key agreement protocol by the originator.
Public property EncryptedKey Overridden. The EncryptedKey property retrieves the encrypted recipient keying material.
Public property KeyEncryptionAlgorithm Overridden. The KeyEncryptionAlgorithm property retrieves the algorithm used to perform the key agreement.
Public property OriginatorIdentifierOrKey The OriginatorIdentifierOrKey property retrieves information about the originator of the key agreement for key agreement algorithms that warrant it.
Public property OtherKeyAttribute The OtherKeyAttribute property retrieves attributes of the keying material.
Public property RecipientIdentifier Overridden. The RecipientIdentifier property retrieves the identifier of the recipient.
Public property Type  The Type property retrieves the type of the recipient. The type of the recipient determines which of two major protocols is used to establish a key between the originator and the recipient of a CMS/PKCS #7 message.(Inherited from RecipientInfo.)
Public property Version Overridden. The Version property retrieves the version of the key agreement recipient. This is automatically set for objects in this class, and the value implies that the recipient is taking part in a key agreement algorithm.

(see also Protected Methods )
  Name Description
Public method Equals  Overloaded. Determines whether two Object instances are equal. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode  Serves as a hash function for a particular type. GetHashCode is suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetType  Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Static ReferenceEquals  Determines whether the specified Object instances are the same instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString  Returns a String that represents the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)

  Name Description
Protected method Finalize  Allows an Object to attempt to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone  Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
