NegotiateStream | SslStream

Remarks

The NegotiateStream and SslStream classes throw this exception when the client or server cannot be authenticated. When this exception is thrown, you can retry the authentication with different credentials. If you cannot retry the authentication, a InvalidCredentialException is thrown instead of the AuthenticationException.
