public class KeyInfoRetrievalMethod : KeyInfoClause

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodKeyInfoRetrievalMethod()

Initializes a new instance of the KeyInfoRetrievalMethod class.

System_CAPS_pubmethodKeyInfoRetrievalMethod(String)

Initializes a new instance of the KeyInfoRetrievalMethod class with the specified Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) pointing to the referenced KeyInfo object.

System_CAPS_pubmethodKeyInfoRetrievalMethod(String, String)

Initializes a new instance of the KeyInfoRetrievalMethod class with the specified Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) pointing to the referenced KeyInfo object and the URI that describes the type of data to retrieve.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyType

Gets or sets a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that describes the type of data to be retrieved.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyUri

Gets or sets the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the KeyInfoRetrievalMethod object.

NameDescription
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_pubmethodGetXml()

Returns the XML representation of the KeyInfoRetrievalMethod object.(Overrides KeyInfoClause.GetXml().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodLoadXml(XmlElement)

Parses the input XmlElement object and configures the internal state of the KeyInfoRetrievalMethod object to match.(Overrides KeyInfoClause.LoadXml(XmlElement).)

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.)

The KeyInfoRetrievalMethod class represents the <RetrievalMethod> element for both XML encryption and XML digital signatures.

Use the KeyInfoRetrievalMethod class to reference the same KeyInfo information in multiple XMLDSIG signatures or encrypted XML documents, especially when the referenced information is large. For example, a <RetrievalMethod> subelement can be used to reference a KeyInfoX509Data object that contains an X.509v3 certificate chain, which validates the signing key.

For more information about the <RetrievalMethod> element, see Section 4.4.3 of the XMLDSIG specification, which is available from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/, or see the XML Encryption specification, which is available from the W3C at www.w3.org/TR/xmlenc-core/.
