SslStream.CipherStrength Property

Definition

Gets a value that identifies the strength of the cipher algorithm used by this SslStream.

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

Property Value

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

Implements

Mono.Net.Security.IMonoSslStream.CipherStrength

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
