X509SigningCredentials Constructor (X509Certificate2, String, String)

[Starting with the .NET Framework 4.5, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF) has been fully integrated into the .NET Framework. The version of WIF addressed by this topic, WIF 3.5, is deprecated and should only be used when developing against the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 or the .NET Framework 4. For more information about WIF in the .NET Framework 4.5, also known as WIF 4.5, see the Windows Identity Foundation documentation in the .NET Framework 4.5 Development Guide.]

Constructor for X509SigningCredentials based on an X.509 certificate.

Namespace: Microsoft.IdentityModel.SecurityTokenService
Assembly: Microsoft.IdentityModel (in Microsoft.IdentityModel.dll)


Dim certificate As X509Certificate2
Dim signatureAlgorithm As String
Dim digestAlgorithm As String

Dim instance As New X509SigningCredentials(certificate, signatureAlgorithm, digestAlgorithm)


Public Sub New ( _
    certificate As X509Certificate2, _
    signatureAlgorithm As String, _
    digestAlgorithm As String _
public X509SigningCredentials (
    X509Certificate2 certificate,
    string signatureAlgorithm,
    string digestAlgorithm
X509SigningCredentials (
    X509Certificate2^ certificate, 
    String^ signatureAlgorithm, 
    String^ digestAlgorithm
public X509SigningCredentials (
    X509Certificate2 certificate, 
    String signatureAlgorithm, 
    String digestAlgorithm
public function X509SigningCredentials (
    certificate : X509Certificate2, 
    signatureAlgorithm : String, 
    digestAlgorithm : String


  • signatureAlgorithm
    The signature algorithm.
  • digestAlgorithm
    The digest algorithm.


By default, this constructor uses an X509RawDataKeyIdentifierClause to generate the security key identifier.
