X509Certificate2 Constructor (Byte[], SecureString, X509KeyStorageFlags)

Note: This constructor is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Initializes a new instance of the X509Certificate2 class using a byte array, a password, and a key storage flag.

Namespace: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public X509Certificate2 (
	byte[] rawData,
	SecureString password,
	X509KeyStorageFlags keyStorageFlags
)
public X509Certificate2 (
	byte[] rawData, 
	SecureString password, 
	X509KeyStorageFlags keyStorageFlags
)
public function X509Certificate2 (
	rawData : byte[], 
	password : SecureString, 
	keyStorageFlags : X509KeyStorageFlags
)

Parameters

rawData

A byte array that contains data from an X.509 certificate.

password

The password required to access the X.509 certificate data.

keyStorageFlags

One of the X509KeyStorageFlags values that controls where and how to import the private key.

This constructor 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 Microsoft Cryptographic API Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP).

Security noteSecurity Note

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.
