Exception Condition

An attempt to access the CurrentConnectionProtection property was made before the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider instance was initialized.

The CurrentConnectionProtection property indicates the current level of security that the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider instance is configured to use. The CurrentConnectionProtection property is based on the connnectionProtection attribute set with the add Element for providers for membership (ASP.NET Settings Schema) in the application configuration file.

The connectionProtection attribute can only be set to None or SignAndSeal in the configuration file.

See the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider class topic for more information about connection strings.

The following code example shows a Web.config entry that configures an ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider instance to use the SSL security protocol to connect to an Active Directory server.

    <add name="ADService" connectionString="LDAP://ldapServer/" />
    <membership defaultProvider="AspNetActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider">
        <add name="AspNetActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider" 
          System.Web, Version=2.0.3600, Culture=neutral,
          connectionProtection="SignAndSeal" />
