Authorization.Authorization(String) Constructor

Creates a new instance of the Authorization class with the specified authorization message.

Namespace: System.Net
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
	token As String _
)
'Usage
Dim token As String

Dim instance As New Authorization(token)
public Authorization (
	String token
)
public function Authorization (
	token : String
)
Not applicable.

Parameters

token

The encrypted authorization message expected by the server.

The Authorization instance is created with the Message property set to token and the Complete property set to true.

The following code example shows how to create an Authorization object. For a complete example, refer to the AuthenticationManager class.

  ' Authenticate is the core method for this custom authentication.
  ' When an Internet resource requests authentication, the WebRequest.GetResponse 
  ' method calls the AuthenticationManager.Authenticate method. This method, in 
  ' turn, calls the Authenticate method on each of the registered authentication
  ' modules, in the order in which they were registered. When the authentication is 
  ' complete an Authorization object is returned to the WebRequest.
  Public Function Authenticate(ByVal challenge As String, ByVal request As WebRequest, ByVal credentials As ICredentials) As Authorization _
      Implements IAuthenticationModule.Authenticate


    Dim ASCII As Encoding = Encoding.ASCII

    ' Get the username and password from the credentials
    Dim MyCreds As NetworkCredential = credentials.GetCredential(request.RequestUri, "Basic")

    If PreAuthenticate(request, credentials) Is Nothing Then
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Lf + " Pre-authentication is not allowed.")
    Else
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Lf + " Pre-authentication is allowed.")
    End If
    ' Verify that the challenge satisfies the authorization requirements.
    Dim challengeOk As Boolean = checkChallenge(challenge, MyCreds.Domain)

    If Not challengeOk Then
      Return Nothing
    End If

    ' Create the encrypted string according to the Basic authentication format as
    ' follows:
    ' a)Concatenate the username and password separated by colon;
    ' b)Apply ASCII encoding to obtain a stream of bytes;
    ' c)Apply Base64 encoding to this array of bytes to obtain the encoded 
    ' authorization.
    Dim BasicEncrypt As String = MyCreds.UserName + ":" + MyCreds.Password

    Dim BasicToken As String = "Basic " + Convert.ToBase64String(ASCII.GetBytes(BasicEncrypt))

    ' Create an Authorization object using the encoded authorization above.
    Dim resourceAuthorization As New Authorization(BasicToken)

    ' Get the Message property, which contains the authorization string that the 
    ' client returns to the server when accessing protected resources.
    Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Lf + " Authorization Message:{0}", resourceAuthorization.Message)

    ' Get the Complete property, which is set to true when the authentication process 
    ' between the client and the server is finished.
