Examples

The following code example uses the EncryptedData class to create an <EncryptedData> element that contains a <CipherData> element, and then writes the XML to an XML file.

#using <System.Xml.dll>
#using <System.Security.dll>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Xml;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography;
using namespace System::Security::Cryptography::Xml;
using namespace System::IO;

/// This sample used the EncryptedData class to create a EncryptedData element
/// and write it to an XML file.
int main()
{
    // Create a new CipherData object.
    CipherData^ cipher = gcnew CipherData();
    // Assign a byte array to be the CipherValue. This is a
    // byte array representing encrypted data.
    cipher->CipherValue = gcnew array<Byte>(8);
    // Create a new EncryptedData object.
    EncryptedData^ encryptionRoot = gcnew EncryptedData();
    //Add an encryption method to the object.
    encryptionRoot->Id = "ED";
    encryptionRoot->EncryptionMethod = gcnew EncryptionMethod(
        "http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#aes128-cbc");
    encryptionRoot->CipherData = cipher;

    //Add key information to the object.
    KeyInfo^ keyDetails = gcnew KeyInfo();
    keyDetails->AddClause(gcnew KeyInfoRetrievalMethod("#EK",
        "http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#EncryptedKey"));
    encryptionRoot->KeyInfo = keyDetails;

    // Create new XML document and put encrypted data into it.
    XmlDocument^ doc = gcnew XmlDocument();
    XmlElement^ encryptionPropertyElement =
        doc->CreateElement("EncryptionProperty", 
        EncryptedXml::XmlEncNamespaceUrl);
    EncryptionProperty^ property = gcnew EncryptionProperty(
        encryptionPropertyElement);
    encryptionRoot->AddProperty(property);

    // Output the resulting XML information into a file.
    String^ path = "test.xml";
    try
    {
        File::WriteAllText(path, encryptionRoot->GetXml()->OuterXml);
    }
    catch (IOException^ ex)
    {
        Console::WriteLine("There was an error writing to {0}", path);
        Console::WriteLine(ex->Message);
    }
    //Console.WriteLine(ed.GetXml().OuterXml);
}

Remarks

The CipherData class represents the <CipherData> element in XML encryption. It is a required element that provides the encrypted data. It must either contain the encrypted data as base64-encoded text of the <CipherValue> element, or provide a reference to an external location containing the encrypted data using the <CipherReference> element.

In many cases, you do not need to directly create a new instance of the CipherData class. The EncryptedXml, EncryptedData, and EncryptedKey classes create instances for you.

Note

A CipherData object can have either a CipherReference property or a CipherValue property, but not both. A CryptographicException is thrown if both are assigned to a CipherData object.

Constructors

CipherData() CipherData() CipherData() CipherData()

Initializes a new instance of the CipherData class.

CipherData(Byte[]) CipherData(Byte[]) CipherData(Byte[]) CipherData(Byte[])

Initializes a new instance of the CipherData class using a byte array as the CipherValue value.

CipherData(CipherReference) CipherData(CipherReference) CipherData(CipherReference) CipherData(CipherReference)

Initializes a new instance of the CipherData class using a CipherReference object.

Properties

CipherReference CipherReference CipherReference CipherReference

Gets or sets the <CipherReference> element.

CipherValue CipherValue CipherValue CipherValue
