WS_THUMBPRINT_CERT_CREDENTIAL structure

The type for specifying a certificate credential using the certificate's thumbprint, store location and store name. The specified credential is loaded when the containing channel or listener is opened.

The thumbprint is the best option for specifying a certificate when subject name based specification is expected to be ambiguous due to the presence of multiple certificates with matching subject names in the cert store being specified.

Syntax


struct WS_THUMBPRINT_CERT_CREDENTIAL {
  WS_CERT_CREDENTIAL credential;
  ULONG              storeLocation;
  WS_STRING          storeName;
  WS_STRING          thumbprint;
};

Members

credential

The base type from which this type and all other certificate credential types derive.

storeLocation

The certificate store location (such as CERT_SYSTEM_STORE_CURRENT_USER or CERT_SYSTEM_STORE_LOCAL_MACHINE) that contains the specified certificate.

storeName

The certificate store name (such as "My") that contains the specified certificate.

thumbprint

The SHA-1 thumbprint (such as "c0f89c8d4e4e80f250b58c3fae944a0edee02804") of the specified certificate. The supplied value should be a hexadecimal string without whitespace characters or a leading 0x. A tool such as certmgr.exe may be used to find the thumbprint of a certificate.
