SecurityKey Class

 

Base class for security keys.

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


[<AbstractClass>]
type SecurityKey = class end

NameDescription
System_CAPS_protmethodSecurityKey()

Initializes a new instance of the SecurityKey class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyKeySize

When overridden in a derived class, gets the size, in bits, of the key.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodDecryptKey(String, Byte[])

When overridden in a derived class, decrypts the specified encrypted key.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEncryptKey(String, Byte[])

When overridden in a derived class, encrypts the specified key.

System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsAsymmetricAlgorithm(String)

When overridden in a derived class, gets a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm uses asymmetric keys.

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsSupportedAlgorithm(String)

When overridden in a derived class, gets a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm is supported by this class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsSymmetricAlgorithm(String)

When overridden in a derived class, gets a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm uses symmetric keys.

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

Security keys are used for cryptographic operations, such as generating digital signatures and encrypting XML data.
