The TransformChain class contains a list of Transform objects that determine how to order XML data before creating a digest.
Use the TransformChain class whenever you need to add one or more transform objects to an encrypted XML document or to a signed XML document.
Both the Reference class and the EncryptedReference class contain a TransformChain object. You can add a Transform object to the Reference class by calling the AddTransform method. You can add a Transform object to the EncryptedReference class by calling the AddTransform method. You can also create a TransformChain object manually and pass it to either the TransformChain property or the TransformChain property.
If you want to sign only a portion of an XML document, you can use a transform to identify the XML elements you intend to sign. Note that the Uri property and the Uri property automatically create internal transforms that allow you to sign a portion of a document.
For more information about transforms, see the XMLDSIG specification, which is available from the W3C at www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/, or see the XML encryption specification, which is available from the W3C at www.w3.org/TR/xmlenc-core/.
