Instances of this class are used to specify the cryptographic characteristics of the algorithms used when securing messages.

This class is used by derived classes to instantiate security algorithm suites, and contains properties that describe the security algorithms. For example, the wsBasicHttp binding uses an internal derived class to specify the properties of its security algorithms.
