X509Certificate2 Constructor (Byte, String)
Assembly: System (in system.dll)
A byte array containing data from an X.509 certificate.
The password required to access the X.509 certificate data.
This constructor creates a new X509Certificate2 object using a byte array and a password that is needed to access the certificate data. It is used with PKCS12 (PFX) files that contain the certificate's private key. Calling this constructor with the correct password decrypts the private key and saves it to a key container.
Never hard code a password within your source code. Hard-coded passwords can be retrieved from an assembly using the MSIL Disassembler (Ildasm.exe), a hex editor, or by simply opening up the assembly in a text editor such as Notepad.exe.
