SslStream.HashAlgorithm Property

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

Gets the algorithm used for generating message authentication codes (MACs).

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

public virtual HashAlgorithmType HashAlgorithm { get; }
/** @property */
public HashAlgorithmType get_HashAlgorithm ()

public function get HashAlgorithm () : HashAlgorithmType

Property Value

A HashAlgorithmType value.

The value of this property is None until the authentication occurs.

Message authentication algorithms generate message hashes and signatures used to detect tampering and forgery.

The following code example displays the cryptography settings for the specified stream.

static void DisplaySecurityLevel(SslStream stream)
   Console.WriteLine("Cipher: {0} strength {1}", stream.CipherAlgorithm, stream.CipherStrength);
   Console.WriteLine("Hash: {0} strength {1}", stream.HashAlgorithm, stream.HashStrength);
   Console.WriteLine("Key exchange: {0} strength {1}", stream.KeyExchangeAlgorithm, stream.KeyExchangeStrength);
   Console.WriteLine("Protocol: {0}", stream.SslProtocol);
