Authorization Constructor (String, Boolean, String)

Creates a new instance of the Authorization class with the specified authorization message, completion status, and connection group identifier.

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

public Authorization(
	string token,
	bool finished,
	string connectionGroupId


Type: System.String
The encrypted authorization message expected by the server.
Type: System.Boolean
The completion status of the authorization attempt. true if the authorization attempt is complete; otherwise, false.
Type: System.String
A unique identifier that can be used to create private client-server connections that are bound only to this authentication scheme.

The following code example creates a new instance of the Authorization class with the specified authorization message, completion status, and connection group identifier.

        public Authorization Authenticate( string challenge,WebRequest request,ICredentials credentials)
                string message;
                // Check if Challenge string was raised by a site which requires CloneBasic authentication.
                if ((challenge == null) || (!challenge.StartsWith("CloneBasic")))
                    return null; 
                NetworkCredential myCredentials;
                if (credentials is CredentialCache)
                    myCredentials = credentials.GetCredential(request.RequestUri,"CloneBasic");
                    if (myCredentials == null)
                        return null;
                    myCredentials = (NetworkCredential)credentials; 
            // Message encryption scheme : 
            // a)Concatenate username and password seperated by space;
            // b)Apply ASCII encoding to obtain a stream of bytes;
            // c)Apply Base64 Encoding to this array of bytes to obtain our encoded authorization message.

                message = myCredentials.UserName + " " + myCredentials.Password;
                // Apply AsciiEncoding to our user name and password to obtain it as an array of bytes.
                Encoding asciiEncoding = Encoding.ASCII;
                byte[] byteArray = new byte[asciiEncoding.GetByteCount(message)];
                byteArray = asciiEncoding.GetBytes(message);

                // Perform Base64 transform.
                message = Convert.ToBase64String(byteArray);
            // The following overloaded contructor sets the 'Message' property of authorization to the base64 string;
            // that  we just formed and it also sets the 'Complete' property to true and the connection group id;
            // to the domain of the NetworkCredential object.
                Authorization myAuthorization = new Authorization("CloneBasic " + message,true,request.ConnectionGroupName);
                return myAuthorization;
            catch(Exception e)
                    Console.WriteLine("Exception Raised ...:"+e.Message);    
                return null;
