Message.EncryptionAlgorithm Property

Gets or sets the encryption algorithm used to encrypt the body of a private message.

Namespace:  System.Messaging
Assembly:  System.Messaging (in System.Messaging.dll)

[MessagingDescriptionAttribute("MsgEncryptionAlgorithm")]
public EncryptionAlgorithm EncryptionAlgorithm { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Messaging.EncryptionAlgorithm
One of the EncryptionAlgorithm enumeration values. The default is RC2.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The message queue is filtered to ignore the EncryptionAlgorithm property.

If a message is private (encrypted), it is encrypted before it is sent and decrypted upon receipt. The EncryptionAlgorithm property specifies the algorithm used to encrypt the message body of a private message.

A queue can require that incoming messages be encrypted. If an application sends a non-encrypted (non-private) message to a queue that accepts only private messages, or if it sends a private message to a queue that accepts only non-private messages, the queue rejects the message. The sending application can request that a negative acknowledgment message be returned in such a case.
