TrustServerCertificate Property

SqlConnectionStringBuilder::TrustServerCertificate Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the channel will be encrypted while bypassing walking the certificate chain to validate trust.

Namespace:  System.Data.SqlClient
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public:
property bool TrustServerCertificate {
	bool get ();
	void set (bool value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
A Boolean. Recognized values are true, false, yes, and no.

When TrustServerCertificate is set to true, the transport layer will use SSL to encrypt the channel and bypass walking the certificate chain to validate trust. If TrustServerCertificate is set to true and encryption is turned on, the encryption level specified on the server will be used even if Encrypt is set to false. The connection will fail otherwise.

For more information, see "Encryption Hierarchy" and "Using Encryption Without Validation" in SQL Server Books Online.
