Instance Property


Indicates whether the archiver requires all archived classes to resist object substitution attacks.


var requiresSecureCoding: Bool { get set }



true if the receiver requires NSSecureCoding; false if not.


If you set the archiver to require secure coding, it throws an exception if you attempt to archive a class which doesn’t conform to NSSecureCoding.

Note that the getter is on the superclass, NSCoder. See NSCoder for more information about secure coding.
