Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

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

Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public override bool IsEncrypted { get; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_IsEncrypted ()

public override function get IsEncrypted () : boolean

Property Value

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);
}
