RecipientInfo Members

The RecipientInfo class represents information about a CMS/PKCS #7 message recipient. The RecipientInfo class is an abstract class inherited by the KeyAgreeRecipientInfo and KeyTransRecipientInfo classes.

The following tables list the members exposed by the RecipientInfo type.

  Name Description
Public property EncryptedKey The EncryptedKey abstract property retrieves the encrypted recipient keying material.
Public property KeyEncryptionAlgorithm The KeyEncryptionAlgorithm abstract property retrieves the algorithm used to perform the key establishment.
Public property RecipientIdentifier The RecipientIdentifier abstract property retrieves the identifier of the recipient.
Public property Type The Type property retrieves the type of the recipient. The type of the recipient determines which of two major protocols is used to establish a key between the originator and the recipient of a CMS/PKCS #7 message.
Public property Version The Version abstract property retrieves the version of the recipient information. Derived classes automatically set this property for their objects, and the value indicates whether it is using PKCS #7 or Cryptographic Message Syntax (CMS) to protect messages. The version also implies whether the RecipientInfo object establishes a cryptographic key by a key agreement algorithm or a key transport algorithm.
