Examples

The following example demonstrates displaying the properties of an authenticated stream.

// The following class displays the properties of an authenticatedStream.
public ref class AuthenticatedStreamReporter
{
public:
   static void DisplayProperties( AuthenticatedStream^ stream )
   {
      Console::WriteLine( L"IsAuthenticated: {0}", stream->IsAuthenticated );
      Console::WriteLine( L"IsMutuallyAuthenticated: {0}", stream->IsMutuallyAuthenticated );
      Console::WriteLine( L"IsEncrypted: {0}", stream->IsEncrypted );
      Console::WriteLine( L"IsSigned: {0}", stream->IsSigned );
      Console::WriteLine( L"IsServer: {0}", stream->IsServer );
   }

};



    // The following class displays the properties of an authenticatedStream.
    public class AuthenticatedStreamReporter
{
    public static void DisplayProperties(AuthenticatedStream stream)
   {
        Console.WriteLine("IsAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsAuthenticated);
        Console.WriteLine("IsMutuallyAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated);
        Console.WriteLine("IsEncrypted: {0}", stream.IsEncrypted);
        Console.WriteLine("IsSigned: {0}", stream.IsSigned);
        Console.WriteLine("IsServer: {0}", stream.IsServer);
    }
}
' The following class displays the properties of an AuthenticatedStream.
Public Class AuthenticatedStreamReporter
	Public Shared Sub DisplayProperties(stream As AuthenticatedStream)
		Console.WriteLine("IsAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsAuthenticated)
		Console.WriteLine("IsMutuallyAuthenticated: {0}", stream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated)
		Console.WriteLine("IsEncrypted: {0}", stream.IsEncrypted)
		Console.WriteLine("IsSigned: {0}", stream.IsSigned)
		Console.WriteLine("IsServer: {0}", stream.IsServer)
	End Sub
End Class

Remarks

This abstract class provides methods and properties that are common to authenticated streams.

Authenticated streams can provide authentication, data signing, and encryption services that can help maintain the integrity and confidentiality of data transmitted using the InnerStream.

The security protocol implemented by a class that derives from AuthenticatedStream together with the security protocols supported on the client and server will determine the security features that are available to an application. The NegotiateStream and SslStream classes inherit from AuthenticatedStream and implement the Negotiate and Secure Sockets Layer security protocols, respectively.

Notes to Inheritors

The following members must be overridden in a derived class: IsAuthenticated, IsEncrypted, IsMutuallyAuthenticated, IsServer, and IsSigned.
