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.

static void DisplaySecurityServices(SslStream stream)
   Console.WriteLine("Is authenticated: {0} as server? {1}", stream.IsAuthenticated, stream.IsServer);
   Console.WriteLine("IsSigned: {0}", stream.IsSigned);
   Console.WriteLine("Is Encrypted: {0}", stream.IsEncrypted);
