Property Value

Type: System.Net.Security.AuthenticationLevel

Returns AuthenticationLevel.

A bitwise combination of the AuthenticationLevel values. The default value is MutualAuthRequested.

In mutual authentication, both the client and server present credentials to establish their identity. The MutualAuthRequired and MutualAuthRequested values are relevant for Kerberos authentication. Kerberos authentication can be supported directly, or can be used if the Negotiate security protocol is used to select the actual security protocol. For more information about authentication protocols, see Internet Authentication.
