SslStream.IsSigned Property


Gets a Boolean value that indicates whether the data sent using this stream is signed.

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

Property Value

true if the data is signed before being transmitted; 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 );
   Console::WriteLine( L"Is mutually authenticated: {0}", stream->IsMutuallyAuthenticated );
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);
   Console.WriteLine("Is mutually authenticated: {0}", stream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated);
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)
    Console.WriteLine("Is mutually authenticated: {0}", stream.IsMutuallyAuthenticated)
End Sub


Data signing helps to protect the integrity of the data, namely it helps the recipient determine whether the data has been tampered with while in transit.
