.NET Framework (current version)
 

Called by servers to authenticate the server and optionally the client in a client-server connection using the specified certificates, requirements and security protocol as an asynchronous operation.

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

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading = true)]
public virtual Task AuthenticateAsServerAsync(
	X509Certificate serverCertificate,
	bool clientCertificateRequired,
	SslProtocols enabledSslProtocols,
	bool checkCertificateRevocation
)

Parameters

serverCertificate
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate

The X509Certificate used to authenticate the server.

clientCertificateRequired
Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean value that specifies whether the client is asked for a certificate for authentication. Note that this is only a request -- if no certificate is provided, the server still accepts the connection request.

enabledSslProtocols
Type: System.Security.Authentication.SslProtocols

The SslProtocols value that represents the protocol used for authentication.

checkCertificateRevocation
Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean value that specifies whether the certificate revocation list is checked during authentication.

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task

Returns Task

The task object representing the asynchronous operation.

If the authentication fails, you receive a AuthenticationException, and this SslStream is no longer useable. You should close this object and remove all references to it so that it can be collected by the garbage collector.
