Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public:
property int CipherStrength {
	virtual int get();
}

Property Value

Type: System::Int32

An Int32 value that specifies the strength of the algorithm, in bits.

The value of this property is zero until the authentication occurs.

This property returns one of the following values:

  • 0

  • 40

  • 56

  • 80

  • 128

  • 168

  • 192

  • 256

The following code example displays the cryptography settings for the specified stream.

static void DisplaySecurityLevel( SslStream^ stream )
{
   Console::WriteLine( L"Cipher: {0} strength {1}", stream->CipherAlgorithm, stream->CipherStrength );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Hash: {0} strength {1}", stream->HashAlgorithm, stream->HashStrength );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Key exchange: {0} strength {1}", stream->KeyExchangeAlgorithm, stream->KeyExchangeStrength );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Protocol: {0}", stream->SslProtocol );
}
