The System.Net.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 System.Net.ICredentials interface, such as the System.Net.CredentialCache class, return System.Net.NetworkCredential objects.
This class does not support public key-based authentication methods such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) client authentication.
