RsaKeyIdentifierClause Class

Represents a key identifier clause that identifies a RsaSecurityToken security token.


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

public class RsaKeyIdentifierClause : SecurityKeyIdentifierClause

The RsaKeyIdentifierClause type exposes the following members.

Public methodRsaKeyIdentifierClauseInitializes a new instance of the RsaKeyIdentifierClause class using the specified RSA algorithm.

Public propertyCanCreateKeyGets a value that indicates whether a key can be created from the key identifier clause. (Overrides SecurityKeyIdentifierClause.CanCreateKey.)
Public propertyClauseTypeGets the key identifier clause type. (Inherited from SecurityKeyIdentifierClause.)
Public propertyDerivationLengthGets the size of the derived key. (Inherited from SecurityKeyIdentifierClause.)
Public propertyRsaGets the RSA algorithm that is associated with the key identifier clause.

Public methodCreateKeyCreates a key using the RSA algorithm. (Overrides SecurityKeyIdentifierClause.CreateKey().)
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 methodGetDerivationNonceGets the nonce that was used to generate the derived key. (Inherited from SecurityKeyIdentifierClause.)
Public methodGetExponentGets the Exponent parameter for the RSA algorithm.
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetModulusGets the Modulus parameter for the RSA algorithm.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatches(RSA)Returns a value that indicates whether the key identifier for this instance matches the specified RSA algorithm.
Public methodMatches(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause)Returns a value that indicates whether the key identifier for this instance is equivalent to the specified key identifier clause. (Overrides SecurityKeyIdentifierClause.Matches(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause).)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Overrides Object.ToString().)
Public methodWriteExponentAsBase64Writes the Base64 encoded Exponent parameter of the RSA algorithm into the specified XML serializer.
Public methodWriteModulusAsBase64Writes the Base64 encoded Modulus parameter of the RSA algorithm into the specified XML serializer.

Typically, the RsaKeyIdentifierClause does not need to be used, other than when a custom security token service is created. When a security token service returns a security token, the issued security token contains references to attached and unattached security tokens. Attached references refer to security tokens that are contained within the security header of a SOAP message and unattached references are security tokens that are not included within the security header in the SOAP message. These references typically affirm the authenticity of the issued security token. Use the RsaKeyIdentifierClause class to reference a RsaSecurityToken security token and to access the RSA algorithm. To access the RSA algorithm, get the value of the Rsa property.
