Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if data is encrypted before being transmitted over the network and decrypted when it reaches the remote endpoint; otherwise, false.

Encryption helps to protect the privacy of the data; namely, it helps to ensure that while data is in transit, it cannot be deciphered by third parties.

The following code example demonstrates displaying the value of this property.


    // The following class displays the properties of an authenticatedStream.
    public class AuthenticatedStreamReporter
{
    public static void DisplayProperties(AuthenticatedStream stream)
   {
        Console.WriteLine("IsAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsAuthenticated);
        Console.WriteLine("IsMutuallyAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated);
        Console.WriteLine("IsEncrypted: {0}", stream.IsEncrypted);
        Console.WriteLine("IsSigned: {0}", stream.IsSigned);
        Console.WriteLine("IsServer: {0}", stream.IsServer);
    }
}
