SslStream.CheckCertRevocationStatus Property


Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the certificate revocation list is checked during the certificate validation process.

 virtual property bool CheckCertRevocationStatus { bool get(); };
public virtual bool CheckCertRevocationStatus { get; }
member this.CheckCertRevocationStatus : bool
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property CheckCertRevocationStatus As Boolean

Property Value

true if the certificate revocation list is checked; otherwise, false.




The following code example demonstrates displaying the value of this property.

static void DisplayStreamProperties( SslStream^ stream )
   Console::WriteLine( L"Can read: {0}, write {1}", stream->CanRead, stream->CanWrite );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Can timeout: {0}", stream->CanTimeout );

static void DisplayStreamProperties(SslStream stream)
   Console.WriteLine("Can read: {0}, write {1}", stream.CanRead, stream.CanWrite);
   Console.WriteLine("Can timeout: {0}", stream.CanTimeout);
Private Shared Sub DisplayStreamProperties(stream As SslStream)
    Console.WriteLine("Can read: {0}, write {1}", stream.CanRead, stream.CanWrite)
    Console.WriteLine("Can timeout: {0}", stream.CanTimeout)
End Sub


The certificate revocation list contains certificates that have been revoked by the issuer. Checking the list negatively impacts performance but improves application security.
