Represents the cryptographic key and encrypting algorithm that are used to encrypt the proof key.

Namespace:  System.IdentityModel.Tokens
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public class EncryptingCredentials

The EncryptingCredentials type exposes the following members.

Public methodEncryptingCredentials()Initializes a new instance of the EncryptingCredentials class.
Public methodEncryptingCredentials(SecurityKey, SecurityKeyIdentifier, String)Initializes a new instance of the EncryptingCredentials class with the specified cryptographic key, key identifier, and encryption algorithm.

Public propertyAlgorithmGets or sets the encryption algorithm.
Public propertySecurityKeyGets or sets the encryption key material.
Public propertySecurityKeyIdentifierGets or sets the identifier that identifies the encrypting credential.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This class defines the encrypting credentials which can be used to encrypt the proof key. It is very similar to the SigningCredentials class.
