Hi,
simple question: When does this event fire? I haven't seen it up to now.

This event is fired after each key re-exchange. With SBB components the re-exchange is invoked with RenegotiateCiphers() call on either side.

Ah, ok. I thought it would also fire on first initial negotiation.

The successful finish of initial negotiation is reported via the OnOpenConnection event. We decided not to intersect the terms of "negotiation" and "renegotiation", that's why two separate events were introduced.

Sounds ok. Is there a way (e.g. by means of EventArgs) to determine, what current cipher has been negotiated? Probably once again a RTFM question. If so, forgive me please :)

Use the CipherSuite property of the components to get the cipher suite (you can access this property from both OnOpenConnection and OnCiphersNegotiated event handlers).
