UseKey Class

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Represents the contents of the wst:UseKey element.


Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Protocols.WSTrust
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public class UseKey

The UseKey type exposes the following members.

Public methodUseKey()Initializes a new instance of the UseKey class.
Public methodUseKey(SecurityKeyIdentifier)Initializes a new instance of the UseKey class using the specified security key identifier.
Public methodUseKey(SecurityToken)Initializes a new instance of the UseKey class using the specified security token.
Public methodUseKey(SecurityKeyIdentifier, SecurityToken)Initializes a new instance of the UseKey class using the specified security key identifier and security token.

Public propertySecurityKeyIdentifierGets the security key identifier
Public propertyTokenGets the security token if the serializer cannot convert it to the security key identifier.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This optional element enables the client to request the identity provider to issue a token containing its public key which is specified under the wst:UseKey element. However, the client has to prove possession of the key. In a WS-Security-based SOAP message, the client can add its certificate as an endorsing token to the Security header to prove possession of the key.

For more information about the element that this class represents, see the version of the WS-Trust specification that applies to your scenario.
