public System.Net.TransportContext TransportContext { get; }
member this.TransportContext : System.Net.TransportContext
Public ReadOnly Property TransportContext As TransportContext

Property Value

A TransportContext object for the client request.


The TransportContext property can be used to retrieve the channel binding token (CBT) for an HttpListenerRequest which was sent using HTTPS.

An application could use the TransportContext property to perform custom authentication using calls to the native Win32 AcceptSecurityContext function.

If an application attempts to retrieve the channel binding token (CBT) from this TransportContext property using the GetChannelBinding method and the ChannelBindingKind is not Endpoint, then the HttpListenerRequest will throw NotSupportedException. The HttpListenerRequest overrides the GetChannelBinding method with an internal implementation.
