SecurityTokenEncryptionFailedException: IDX10615: Encryption failed. No support for: Algorithm

Microsoft.IdentityModel.Tokens.SecurityTokenEncryptionFailedException: IDX10615: Encryption failed. No support for: Algorithm when trying to create an instance of Microsoft.IdentityModel.Tokens.EncryptingCredentials()

I tried variations for parameter 2 (alg) but none seemed to work. I was really foxed until I found the source code online and realised that I was passing in the signing key (RSA256) rather than the encryption key (AES256) for the first parameter!

The code will attempt to use the key's crypto factory to lookup the specified algorithm and obviously that won't work when trying to specify AES on an RSA key.

Just a typo!

While I'm here, the algorithms for alg and enc need to be the same length because they will use the same key (parameter 1).
