Return Value

Type: System.IdentityModel.Tokens.EncryptingCredentials

An EncryptingCredentials object that represents the requestor’s encrypting credentials.

Exception Condition

request is null.

This method is called from the GetProofToken method.

The default implementation does the following. Returns null if there is no encryption token specified in the request (the RequestSecurityToken.ProofEncryption property is null). Otherwise, if it can get the token as an X509SecurityToken, it returns credentials based on that token. If it cannot resolve the token as an X509SecurityToken, a RequestFailedException is thrown.
