Parameters

serverCertificate
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate

clientCertificateRequired
Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean value that specifies whether the client must supply a certificate for authentication.

The SslProtocols value that represents the protocol used for authentication.

checkCertificateRevocation
Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean value that specifies whether the certificate revocation list is checked during authentication.

Return Value
