This structure contains both the encoded and decoded representations of a certificate. A certificate context returned by one of the functions defined in the Wincrypt.h file must be freed by calling the CertFreeCertificateContext function. The CertDuplicateCertificateContext function can be called to make a duplicate copy, which also must be freed by calling the CertFreeCertificateContext function.
