SslStream::KeyExchangeAlgorithm Property


The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Gets the key exchange algorithm used by this SslStream.

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

property ExchangeAlgorithmType KeyExchangeAlgorithm {
	virtual ExchangeAlgorithmType 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( L"Cipher: {0} strength {1}", stream->CipherAlgorithm, stream->CipherStrength );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Hash: {0} strength {1}", stream->HashAlgorithm, stream->HashStrength );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Key exchange: {0} strength {1}", stream->KeyExchangeAlgorithm, stream->KeyExchangeStrength );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Protocol: {0}", stream->SslProtocol );
