HttpListenerRequest.IsSecureConnection Property

Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the TCP connection used to send the request is using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

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

property bool IsSecureConnection {
	bool get ();
/** @property */
public boolean get_IsSecureConnection ()

public function get IsSecureConnection () : boolean

Property Value

true if the TCP connection is using SSL; otherwise, false.

To request a secure connection, the client request uses UriSchemeHttps instead of UriSchemeHttp. If the connection cannot be established using SSL, the client receives a WebException that provides information about the error.

The following code example demonstrates using the IsSecureConnection property.

public static void ShowRequestProperties2 (HttpListenerRequest request)
    Console.WriteLine("KeepAlive: {0}", request.KeepAlive);
    Console.WriteLine("Local end point: {0}", request.LocalEndPoint.ToString());
    Console.WriteLine("Remote end point: {0}", request.RemoteEndPoint.ToString());
    Console.WriteLine("Is local? {0}", request.IsLocal);
    Console.WriteLine("HTTP method: {0}", request.HttpMethod);
    Console.WriteLine("Protocol version: {0}", request.ProtocolVersion);
    Console.WriteLine("Is authenticated: {0}", request.IsAuthenticated);
    Console.WriteLine("Is secure: {0}", request.IsSecureConnection);
