Remarks

The EncryptedType class represents the abstract base class from which the classes EncryptedData and EncryptedKey derive. These two classes contain the actual encrypted data or key information in XML encryption. To comply with XML encryption standards, you should use these two derived classes.

For more information on XML encryption standards, see XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1.
