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

'Declaration
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property KeyExchangeStrength As Integer
	Get

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
An Int32 value that specifies the strength of the ExchangeAlgorithmType algorithm, in bits.

The value of this property is zero until the authentication occurs.

In common scenarios, the value of this property is one of the following:

  • 512

  • 768

  • 1024

  • 2048

The following code example displays the cryptography settings for the specified stream.


		 Private Shared Sub DisplaySecurityLevel(ByVal stream As SslStream)
			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)
		 End Sub
