SslStream.KeyExchangeStrength Property

Definition

Gets a value that identifies the strength of the key exchange algorithm used by this instance.

public:
 virtual property int KeyExchangeStrength { int get(); };
public virtual int KeyExchangeStrength { get; }
member this.KeyExchangeStrength : int
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property KeyExchangeStrength As Integer

Property Value

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

Implements

Mono.Net.Security.IMonoSslStream.KeyExchangeStrength

Examples

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 );
}


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);
}
Private Shared Sub DisplaySecurityLevel(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

Remarks

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
