CipherStrength Property  

Return the length of the key used by the encryption algorithm.




The CipherStrength property returns the number of bits in the key used to encrypt the secure data stream. Common values returned by this property are 128 and 256. A key length of 40-bits or 56-bits is considered to be insecure, and suject to brute force attacks. 128-bit and 256-bit keys are considered secure. If this property returns a value of 0, this means that a secure connection has not been established with the server.
