NegotiateStream.AuthenticateAsServerAsync Method (NetworkCredential, ProtectionLevel, TokenImpersonationLevel)

.NET Framework 4.5

Called by servers to authenticate the client, and optionally the server, in a client-server connection as an asynchronous operation. The authentication process uses the specified server credentials and authentication options.

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

[<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)>]
abstract AuthenticateAsServerAsync : 
        credential:NetworkCredential * 
        requiredProtectionLevel:ProtectionLevel * 
        requiredImpersonationLevel:TokenImpersonationLevel -> Task 
[<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)>]
override AuthenticateAsServerAsync : 
        credential:NetworkCredential * 
        requiredProtectionLevel:ProtectionLevel * 
        requiredImpersonationLevel:TokenImpersonationLevel -> Task

Parameters

credential
Type: System.Net.NetworkCredential

The NetworkCredential that is used to establish the identity of the server.

requiredProtectionLevel
Type: System.Net.Security.ProtectionLevel

One of the ProtectionLevel values, indicating the security services for the stream.

requiredImpersonationLevel
Type: System.Security.Principal.TokenImpersonationLevel

One of the TokenImpersonationLevel values, indicating how the server can use the client's credentials to access resources.

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task
Returns Task
The task object representing the asynchronous operation.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

credential is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

requiredImpersonationLevel must be Identification, Impersonation, or Delegation,

AuthenticationException

The authentication failed. You can use this object to try to r-authenticate.

InvalidCredentialException

The authentication failed. You can use this object to retry the authentication.

ObjectDisposedException

This object has been closed.

InvalidOperationException

Authentication has already occurred.

- or -

This stream was used previously to attempt authentication as the client. You cannot use the stream to retry authentication as the server.

NotSupportedException

Windows 95 and Windows 98 are not supported.

When authentication succeeds, you must check the IsEncrypted and IsSigned properties to determine what security services are used by the NegotiateStream. Check the IsMutuallyAuthenticated property to determine whether mutual authentication occurred.

If the authentication fails, you receive an AuthenticationException or an InvalidCredentialException. In this case, you can retry the authentication with a different credential.

NoteNote

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: ExternalThreading. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
