X509CertificateInitiatorClientCredential.SetCertificate Method (StoreLocation, StoreName, X509FindType, Object)
Allows you to specify the certificate to use to represent the client by specifying query parameters such as storeLocation, storeName, findType and findValue.
Assembly: System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)
public void SetCertificate( StoreLocation storeLocation, StoreName storeName, X509FindType findType, object findValue )
The location of the certificate store the client uses to obtain the client certificate.
Specifies the name of the X.509 certificate store to open.
Defines the type of X.509 search to be executed.
The value to search for in the X.509 certificate store.
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.
Values for findType are included in the X509FindType enumeration.
The most commonly used enumeration is FindBySubjectName, which does a case-insensitive search on the subject name of certificates in the specified store. This can be an imprecise search. If more than one certificate is returned then the first one matching the find is used to represent the client.
The following code specifies the certificate to use.
// Create a WSHttpBinding and set its security properties. The // security mode is Message, and the client is authenticated with // a certificate. EndpointAddress ea = new EndpointAddress("http://contoso.com/"); WSHttpBinding b = new WSHttpBinding(); b.Security.Mode = SecurityMode.Message; b.Security.Message.ClientCredentialType = MessageCredentialType.Certificate; // Create the client with the binding and EndpointAddress. CalculatorClient cc = new CalculatorClient(b, ea); // Set the client credential value to a valid certificate. cc.ClientCredentials.ClientCertificate.SetCertificate( StoreLocation.CurrentUser, StoreName.TrustedPeople, X509FindType.FindBySubjectName, "client.com");
