SignerInfo Class

SignerInfo Class

The SignerInfo class represents a signer associated with a SignedCms object that represents a CMS/PKCS #7 message.

Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography.Pkcs
Assembly:  System.Security (in System.Security.dll)

public sealed class SignerInfo

The signatures represented by the SignerInfo class can be either over message content or a signature. The latter kind of signature is referred to as a countersignature.

This implementation of CMS/PKCS #7 supports only one level of countersignature. That is, a signature can be signed, which forms a countersignature, but that countersignature cannot be signed again.

This class does not have a public constructor; therefore, it cannot be publicly instantiated. It is a read-only class accessible from the SignedCms.SignerInfos property.

System.Object
