System_CAPS_noteNote

The .NET Framework caches SSL sessions as they are created and attempts to reuse a cached session for a new request, if possible. When attempting to reuse an SSL session, the .NET Framework uses the first element of ClientCertificates (if there is one), or tries to reuse an anonymous session if ClientCertificates is empty.

Win9xFamily

The .NET Framework attempts to reuse an SSL session only if a client certificate is not required.
