This class represents an encrypted key that comes over the wire. The encrypted key is a symmetric key that is encrypted for the receiving party using the receiving party’s public key. When such a key is received, the receiver’s security token is resolved, the symmetric key is decrypted, and an instance of this class is created that contains these two pieces of information.
