Examples

The following code example initializes a CredentialCache with multiple security credentials and uses those credentials with a WebRequest.

CredentialCache^ myCache = gcnew CredentialCache;

myCache->Add( gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/" ), "Basic", gcnew NetworkCredential( UserName,SecurelyStoredPassword ) );
myCache->Add( gcnew Uri( "http://www.contoso.com/" ), "Digest", gcnew NetworkCredential( UserName,SecurelyStoredPassword,Domain ) );

wReq->Credentials = myCache;
CredentialCache myCache = new CredentialCache();

myCache.Add(new Uri("http://www.contoso.com/"),"Basic",new NetworkCredential(UserName,SecurelyStoredPassword));
myCache.Add(new Uri("http://www.contoso.com/"),"Digest", new NetworkCredential(UserName,SecurelyStoredPassword,Domain));

wReq.Credentials = myCache;
Dim myCache As New CredentialCache()

myCache.Add(New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/"), "Basic", New NetworkCredential(UserName, SecurelyStoredPassword))
myCache.Add(New Uri("http://www.contoso.com/"), "Digest", New NetworkCredential(UserName, SecurelyStoredPassword, Domain))

wReq.Credentials = myCache

Remarks

The CredentialCache class stores credentials for multiple Internet resources. Applications that need to access multiple resources can store the credentials for those resources in a CredentialCache instance that then provides the proper set of credentials to the Internet resource when required. When the GetCredential method is called, it compares the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and authentication type provided with those stored in the cache and returns the first set of credentials that match.

The DefaultCredentials property contains the system credentials of the current security context. For client applications, these represent the user name, password, and domain of the user who is currently logged in. For ASP.NET applications, the default credentials are the user credentials of the logged-in user or the user being impersonated.

Constructors

Methods

Add(String, Int32, String, NetworkCredential) Add(String, Int32, String, NetworkCredential) Add(String, Int32, String, NetworkCredential) Add(String, Int32, String, NetworkCredential)

Adds a NetworkCredential instance for use with SMTP to the credential cache and associates it with a host computer, port, and authentication protocol. Credentials added using this method are valid for SMTP only. This method does not work for HTTP or FTP requests.

Add(Uri, String, NetworkCredential) Add(Uri, String, NetworkCredential) Add(Uri, String, NetworkCredential) Add(Uri, String, NetworkCredential)

Adds a NetworkCredential instance to the credential cache for use with protocols other than SMTP and associates it with a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) prefix and authentication protocol.

Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
GetCredential(String, Int32, String) GetCredential(String, Int32, String) GetCredential(String, Int32, String) GetCredential(String, Int32, String)

Returns the NetworkCredential instance associated with the specified host, port, and authentication protocol.

GetCredential(Uri, String) GetCredential(Uri, String) GetCredential(Uri, String) GetCredential(Uri, String)

Returns the NetworkCredential instance associated with the specified Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and authentication type.

GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator() GetEnumerator()

Returns an enumerator that can iterate through the CredentialCache instance.

GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Serves as the default hash function.

(Inherited from Object)
GetType() GetType() GetType() GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone() MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
Remove(String, Int32, String) Remove(String, Int32, String) Remove(String, Int32, String) Remove(String, Int32, String)

Deletes a NetworkCredential instance from the cache if it is associated with the specified host, port, and authentication protocol.

Remove(Uri, String) Remove(Uri, String) Remove(Uri, String) Remove(Uri, String)

Deletes a NetworkCredential instance from the cache if it is associated with the specified Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) prefix and authentication protocol.

ToString() ToString() ToString() ToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.

(Inherited from Object)
