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