KeyExchangeAlgorithm Property

SslStream.KeyExchangeAlgorithm Property


Gets the key exchange algorithm used by this SslStream.

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

public virtual ExchangeAlgorithmType KeyExchangeAlgorithm { get; }

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);
