Property Value

Type: System.Net::NetworkCredential
An NetworkCredential that represents the network credentials of the current user or application.

The credentials returned by the DefaultNetworkCredentials property is applicable only for NTLM, negotiate, and Kerberos-based authentication.

The credentials returned by DefaultNetworkCredentials represents the authentication credentials for the current security context in which the application is running.

For ASP.NET applications, the default network credentials are the user credentials of the logged-in user, or the user being impersonated.
