Retrieves the client's X.509 v.3 certificate as an asynchronous operation.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
'Declaration
<HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, ExternalThreading := True)> _
Public Function GetClientCertificateAsync As Task(Of X509Certificate2)

Return Value

Type: System.Threading.Tasks.Task(Of X509Certificate2)
Returns Task(Of TResult).
The task object representing the asynchronous operation. The Result property on the task object returns a System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates object that contains the client's X.509 v.3 certificate.

This operation will not block. The returned Task(Of TResult) object will complete when the certificate has been retrieved.

If a call to this method to retrieve the client's X.509 v.3 certificate is in progress, then another call to this method cannot be made.
