AuthenticatedStream.IsEncrypted Property

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether data sent using this AuthenticatedStream is encrypted.

Namespace:  System.Net.Security
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
public abstract bool IsEncrypted { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if data is encrypted before being transmitted over the network and decrypted when it reaches the remote endpoint; otherwise, false.

Encryption helps to protect the privacy of the data; namely, it helps to ensure that while data is in transit, it cannot be deciphered by third parties.

The following code example demonstrates displaying the value of this property.

    // The following class displays the properties of an authenticatedStream. 
    public class AuthenticatedStreamReporter
{
    public static void DisplayProperties(AuthenticatedStream stream)
   {
        Console.WriteLine("IsAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsAuthenticated);
        Console.WriteLine("IsMutuallyAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated);
        Console.WriteLine("IsEncrypted: {0}", stream.IsEncrypted);
        Console.WriteLine("IsSigned: {0}", stream.IsSigned);
        Console.WriteLine("IsServer: {0}", stream.IsServer);
    }
}
// The following class displays the properties of an authenticatedStream.
public __gc class AuthenticatedStreamReporter
{
public:
    static void DisplayProperties(AuthenticatedStream* stream)
   {
        Console::WriteLine(S"IsAuthenticated: {0}", __box(stream->IsAuthenticated));
        Console::WriteLine(S"IsMutuallyAuthenticated: {0}", __box(stream->IsMutuallyAuthenticated));
        Console::WriteLine(S"IsEncrypted: {0}", __box(stream->IsEncrypted));
        Console::WriteLine(S"IsSigned: {0}", __box(stream->IsSigned));
        Console::WriteLine(S"IsServer: {0}", __box(stream->IsServer));
    }
};
