Gets or sets a custom client certificate validator.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) provides a default client certificate validator that verifies the client certificate against the trusted people store and also checks that the certificate is part of a chain that connects to a valid root. A custom validator can be implemented to obtain a different behavior. This property allows a custom validator to be specified.
The following code shows how to set this property.
// Configure custom certificate validation. ClientCredentials creds = new ClientCredentials(); creds.ServiceCertificate.Authentication.CertificateValidationMode = X509CertificateValidationMode.Custom; creds.ServiceCertificate.Authentication.CustomCertificateValidator = new MyCertificateValidator();
The property can also be set in a configuration file.
<behaviors> <endpointBehaviors> <behavior name="behave"> <clientCredentials> <serviceCertificate> <authentication certificateValidationMode='Custom' customCertificateValidatorType='Samples.MyCertificateValidator, Samples' /> </serviceCertificate> </clientCredentials> </behavior> </endpointBehaviors> </behaviors> </system.serviceModel> </configuration>
