NegotiateStream.IsEncrypted Property

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether this NegotiateStream uses data encryption.

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

public override 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.

 static void DisplayAuthenticationProperties(NegotiateStream 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("ImpersonationLevel: {0}", stream.ImpersonationLevel);
    Console.WriteLine("IsServer: {0}", stream.IsServer);
}
