public virtual TokenImpersonationLevel ImpersonationLevel { get; }

Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException

Authentication failed or has not occurred.

You must successfully authenticate before calling this method. Clients specify the impersonation level when they request authentication by calling one of the AuthenticateAsClient or BeginAuthenticateAsClient methods. If you authenticate without specifying a TokenImpersonationLevel , Identification is used.

Win9xFamily

These platforms use NTLM for authentication; NTLM does not support impersonation.

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

 static void DisplayAuthenticationProperties(NegotiateStream 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("ImpersonationLevel: {0}", stream.ImpersonationLevel);
    Console.WriteLine("IsServer: {0}", stream.IsServer);
}
