Gets a value that identifies the strength of the hash algorithm used by this instance.

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

public virtual int HashStrength { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

An Int32 value that specifies the strength of the HashAlgorithmType algorithm, in bits. Valid values are 128 or 160.

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

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

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