Note: This property is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Gets the key exchange algorithm used by this SslStream.

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

public virtual ExchangeAlgorithmType KeyExchangeAlgorithm { get; }
/** @property */
public ExchangeAlgorithmType get_KeyExchangeAlgorithm ()

public function get KeyExchangeAlgorithm () : ExchangeAlgorithmType

Property Value

An ExchangeAlgorithmType value.

The value of this property is None until the authentication occurs.

The key exchange algorithm protects information used to generate shared keys.

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);
}
