The EncryptionProperty class encapsulates the <EncryptionProperty> element defined by the World Wide Web Consortium XML Encryption specification located at http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlenc-core/.

Use the EncryptionProperty class to provide additional encryption information related to the EncryptedData and EncryptedKey elements. For example, use this class to specify a time stamp.

The following code example encrypts and decrypts an XML document. This code example creates an EncryptionProperty object that contains custom information about the EncryptedKey element, and adds the EncryptionProperty object to the EncryptionPropertyCollection collection of the EncryptedXml class. Finally, this code example displays information about the EncryptionProperty object and the EncryptionPropertyCollection collection.
