HttpListenerRequest.IsSecureConnection Property

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)

public bool IsSecureConnection { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
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);
