The XML-Encryption filter is responsible for encrypting parts of XML messages based on the settings configured in the XML-Encryption Settings filter.

The XML-Encryption Settings filter generates the encryption.properties message attribute based on configuration settings. The XML-Encryption filter uses these properties to perform the encryption of the data.


Enter a suitable name for the filter in the Name field.

Auto-generation using the XML Encryption Settings Wizard

Because the XML Encryption filter must always be used in conjunction with the XML Encryption Settings and Find Certificate filters, the Policy Studio provides a wizard that can generate these three filters at the same time. To use this wizard, right-click a policy node under the Policies node in the Policy Studio tree, and select the XML Encryption Settings menu option.

For more information on how to configure the XML Encryption Settings Wizard see the XML Encryption Wizard topic.
