Public Property MessageProtectionOrder As MessageProtectionOrder

Property Value

One of the MessageProtectionOrder values that specify how the message is protected. The default is SignBeforeEncrypt.


The value is not a valid member of the enumeration.



If there is nothing in the message that is encrypted, the signature element is not encrypted even when the MessageProtectionOrder property is set to SignBeforeEncryptAndEncryptSignature. This behavior occurs even with system-provided bindings. However the WSDL generated by WCF still contains the <sp:EncryptSignature> assertion.

For a listing of the members and their descriptions, see MessageProtectionOrder.
