Property Value

true if the local endpoint was authenticated as the server side of a client-server authenticated connection; false if the local endpoint was authenticated as the client.

Most security protocols used for client-server authentication define specific behavior and requirements for supplying credentials for authentication based on whether you are the client or the server.

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);
