EncryptedSecurityToken Class

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

A wrapping-token that handles encryption for a token that does not natively support it.


Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Tokens
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

type EncryptedSecurityToken =  
        inherit SecurityToken 

The EncryptedSecurityToken type exposes the following members.

Public methodEncryptedSecurityTokenInitializes a new instance of the EncryptedSecurityToken class for the specified token by using the specified encrypting credentials.

Public propertyEncryptingCredentialsGets the credentials to use for encryption.
Public propertyIdGets the unique identifier of the security token. (Overrides SecurityToken.Id.)
Public propertySecurityKeysGets the cryptographic keys associated with the security token. (Overrides SecurityToken.SecurityKeys.)
Public propertyTokenGets the encrypted token.
Public propertyValidFromGets the first instant in time at which the security token is valid. (Overrides SecurityToken.ValidFrom.)
Public propertyValidToGets the last instant in time at which the security token is valid. (Overrides SecurityToken.ValidTo.)

Public methodCanCreateKeyIdentifierClause(T)Gets a value that indicates whether the token can create a key identifier clause of the specified type. (Overrides SecurityToken.CanCreateKeyIdentifierClause(T)().)
Public methodCreateKeyIdentifierClause(T)Creates a key identifier clause of the specified type for the token. (Overrides SecurityToken.CreateKeyIdentifierClause(T)().)
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.)
Public methodMatchesKeyIdentifierClauseReturns a value that indicates whether the key identifier for this instance can be resolved to the specified key identifier. (Overrides SecurityToken.MatchesKeyIdentifierClause(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause).)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodResolveKeyIdentifierClauseGets the key for the specified key identifier clause. (Overrides SecurityToken.ResolveKeyIdentifierClause(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause).)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

For example, a SamlSecurityToken cannot encrypt itself, so to issue an encrypted SAML11 assertion, wrap a SamlSecurityToken with an EncryptedSecurityToken and provide appropriate EncryptingCredentials.
