XMLSerializer fails to serialize the System.Security.Authentication.SslProtocols type

When you use XMLSerializer to serialize the System.Security.Authentication.SslProtocols type value, you encounter a System.InvalidOperationException error.
This issue occurs because in the .NET Framework 4.6.2 Preview, ObsoleteAttribute was added to a few members (SSL2, SSL3) of System.Security.Authentication.SslProtocols Enum. Because XMLSerializer doesn't support ObsoleteAttribute, it throws and InvalidOperationException error.
The issue will be fixed in the .NET Framework 4.6.2 future release by removing the ObsoleteAttribute from System.Security.Authentication.SslProtocols
