Provides credentials for password-based authentication schemes such as basic, digest, NTLM, and Kerberos authentication.
Assembly: System.Net (in System.Net.dll)
Public Class NetworkCredential _ Implements ICredentials, ICredentialsByHost
public class NetworkCredential : ICredentials, ICredentialsByHost
The NetworkCredential type exposes the following members.
|NetworkCredential()()()||Initializes a new instance of the NetworkCredential class.|
|NetworkCredential(String, String)||Initializes a new instance of the NetworkCredential class with the specified user name and password.|
|NetworkCredential(String, String, String)||Initializes a new instance of the NetworkCredential class with the specified user name, password, and domain.|
|Domain||Gets or sets the domain or computer name that verifies the credentials.|
|Password||Gets or sets the password for the user name associated with the credentials.|
|UserName||Gets or sets the user name associated with the credentials.|
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetCredential(Uri, String)||Returns an instance of the NetworkCredential class for the specified Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) and authentication type.|
|GetCredential(String, Int32, String)||Returns an instance of the NetworkCredential class for the specified host, port, and authentication type.|
|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
The NetworkCredential class is a base class that supplies credentials in password-based authentication schemes such as basic, digest, NTLM, and Kerberos. Classes that implement the ICredentials interface return NetworkCredential objects.
This class does not support public key-based authentication methods such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) client authentication.
