MessageQueueTask.UseEncryption Property


Gets or sets a Boolean indicating whether the message uses encryption.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Dts.Tasks.MessageQueueTask
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.MSMQTask (in Microsoft.SqlServer.MSMQTask.dll)

public bool UseEncryption { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true indicates that encryption is used; false indicates that encryption is not used.

The default value of this property is false.


When configuring the Message Queue task to send messages, you can use one of the encryption algorithms that are currently supported by the Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ), RC2 and RC4, to encrypt the message. Both of these encryption algorithms are now considered cryptographically weak compared to newer algorithms, which Message Queuing does not yet support. Therefore, you should consider your cryptography needs carefully when sending messages using the Message Queue task.
