Property Value

An instance of the X509Certificate class that contains the security certificate received for this ServicePoint object.

Although a ServicePoint object can make multiple connections to an Internet resource, it can maintain only one certificate.

The following code example displays the value of this property.

if (sp.Certificate == null)
    Console.WriteLine ("Certificate = (null)");
else
    Console.WriteLine ("Certificate = " + sp.Certificate.ToString ());

if (sp.ClientCertificate == null)
    Console.WriteLine ("ClientCertificate = (null)");
else
    Console. WriteLine ("ClientCertificate = " + sp.ClientCertificate.ToString ());

Console.WriteLine ("ProtocolVersion = " + sp.ProtocolVersion.ToString ());
Console.WriteLine ("SupportsPipelining = " + sp.SupportsPipelining);


if (sp.get_Certificate() == null) {
    Console.WriteLine("Certificate = (null)");
}
else {
    Console.WriteLine(("Certificate = " 
        + sp.get_Certificate().ToString()));
}

if (sp.get_ClientCertificate() == null) {
    Console.WriteLine("ClientCertificate = (null)");
}
else {
    Console.WriteLine(("ClientCertificate = " 
        + sp.get_ClientCertificate().ToString()));
}
Console.WriteLine(("ProtocolVersion = " 
    + sp.get_ProtocolVersion().ToString()));
Console.WriteLine(("SupportsPipelining = " 
    + sp.get_SupportsPipelining()));
