SslStream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated SslStream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated SslStream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated SslStream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated Property


Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether both server and client have been authenticated.

 virtual property bool IsMutuallyAuthenticated { bool get(); };
public override bool IsMutuallyAuthenticated { get; }
member this.IsMutuallyAuthenticated : bool
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property IsMutuallyAuthenticated As Boolean

Property Value

true if the server has been authenticated; otherwise false.


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

static void DisplaySecurityServices( SslStream^ stream )
   Console::WriteLine( L"Is authenticated: {0} as server? {1}", stream->IsAuthenticated, stream->IsServer );
   Console::WriteLine( L"IsSigned: {0}", stream->IsSigned );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Is Encrypted: {0}", stream->IsEncrypted );

static void DisplaySecurityServices(SslStream stream)
   Console.WriteLine("Is authenticated: {0} as server? {1}", stream.IsAuthenticated, stream.IsServer);
   Console.WriteLine("IsSigned: {0}", stream.IsSigned);
   Console.WriteLine("Is Encrypted: {0}", stream.IsEncrypted);
Private Shared Sub DisplaySecurityServices(stream As SslStream)
    Console.WriteLine("Is authenticated: {0} as server? {1}", stream.IsAuthenticated, stream.IsServer)
    Console.WriteLine("IsSigned: {0}", stream.IsSigned)
    Console.WriteLine("Is Encrypted: {0}", stream.IsEncrypted)
End Sub


Mutual authentication is specified by the server when the server wants the client to provide a certificate for authentication.
