public void SetCertificate(
	string subjectName,

)

Parameters

subjectName
Type: System.String

Subject distinguished name.

storeLocation
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.StoreLocation

The location of the certificate store the service uses to obtain the service certificate.

storeName
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.StoreName

Specifies the name of the X.509 certificate store to open.

Values for storeLocation are included in the StoreLocation enumeration:

  • LocalMachine: the certificate store assigned to the local machine (default).

  • CurrentUser: the certificate store used by the current user.

If the client application is running under a system account, then the certificate is typically in LocalMachine. If the client application is running under a user account, then the certificate is typically in CurrentUser.

Values for storeName are included in the StoreName enumeration.

The following code shows how to use this method to set a certificate for a service credential.

NetTcpBinding b = new NetTcpBinding();
b.Security.Mode = SecurityMode.Message;
Type c = typeof(ICalculator);
Uri a = new Uri("net.tcp://MyMachineName/tcpBase");
Uri[] baseAddresses = new Uri[] { a };
ServiceHost sh = new ServiceHost(typeof(MyService), baseAddresses);
sh.AddServiceEndpoint(c, b, "Aloha");
sh.Credentials.ServiceCertificate.SetCertificate(
    "CN=Administrator,CN=Users,DC=johndoe,DC=nttest,DC=microsoft,DC=com",
    StoreLocation.LocalMachine,
    StoreName.My);
sh.Open();
