SecurityKeyElement Class

.NET Framework (current version)
 

Provides delayed resolution of security keys by resolving the SecurityKeyIdentifierClause or SecurityKeyIdentifier only when cryptographic functions are needed. This allows a key identifier clause or key identifier that is never used by an application to be serialized and deserialzied on and off the wire without issues.

public class SecurityKeyElement : SecurityKey

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodSecurityKeyElement(SecurityKeyIdentifier, SecurityTokenResolver)

Initializes a new instance of the SecurityKeyElement class from the specified key identifier.

System_CAPS_pubmethodSecurityKeyElement(SecurityKeyIdentifierClause, SecurityTokenResolver)

Initializes a new instance of the SecurityKeyElement class from the specified key identifier clause.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyKeySize

Gets the key size, in bits.(Overrides SecurityKey.KeySize.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodDecryptKey(String, Byte[])

Decrypts the specified key by using the specified algorithm.(Overrides SecurityKey.DecryptKey(String, Byte[]).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodEncryptKey(String, Byte[])

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)

Returns a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm is asymmetric.(Overrides SecurityKey.IsAsymmetricAlgorithm(String).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsSupportedAlgorithm(String)

Returns a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm is supported by this key.(Overrides SecurityKey.IsSupportedAlgorithm(String).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsSymmetricAlgorithm(String)

Returns a value that indicates whether the specified algorithm is symmetric.(Overrides SecurityKey.IsSymmetricAlgorithm(String).)

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.)
