SqlConnectionStringBuilder.TrustServerCertificate Property


Gets or sets a value that indicates whether the channel will be encrypted while bypassing walking the certificate chain to validate trust.

 property bool TrustServerCertificate { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool TrustServerCertificate { get; set; }
member this.TrustServerCertificate : bool with get, set
Public Property TrustServerCertificate As Boolean

Property Value

A Boolean. Recognized values are true, false, yes, and no.


When TrustServerCertificate is set to true, the transport layer will use SSL to encrypt the channel and bypass walking the certificate chain to validate trust. If TrustServerCertificate is set to true and encryption is turned on, the encryption level specified on the server will be used even if Encrypt is set to false. The connection will fail otherwise.
