IAuthenticationModule.AuthenticationType Property

Gets the authentication type provided by this authentication module.

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

string AuthenticationType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string indicating the authentication type provided by this authentication module.

The AuthenticationType property identifies the authentication type implemented by this authentication module. The AuthenticationType property is used by the AuthenticationManager.Register method to determine if the authentication module has been registered, and by the AuthenticationManager.Unregister method to remove a registered authentication module.

The following example shows how to use the AuthenticationType property. For a complete example refer to the AuthenticationManager class.

private string m_authenticationType ;
private bool m_canPreAuthenticate ;

// The CustomBasic constructor initializes the properties of the customized  
// authentication. 
public CustomBasic()
  m_authenticationType = "Basic";
  m_canPreAuthenticate = false;

// Define the authentication type. This type is then used to identify this 
// custom authentication module. The default is set to Basic. 
public string AuthenticationType
    return m_authenticationType;

// Define the pre-authentication capabilities for the module. The default is set 
// to false. 
public bool CanPreAuthenticate
    return m_canPreAuthenticate;
