Namespace:   System.IdentityModel.Selectors
Assembly:  System.IdentityModel (in System.IdentityModel.dll)

public static X509CertificateValidator CreateChainTrustValidator(
	bool useMachineContext,
	X509ChainPolicy chainPolicy
)

Parameters

useMachineContext
Type: System.Boolean

true to use the machine context; false to use the current user context.

chainPolicy
Type: System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509ChainPolicy

An X509ChainPolicy that specifies the policy used to build and verify the trust chain.

Return Value

Type: System.IdentityModel.Selectors.X509CertificateValidator

A X509CertificateValidator that validates the X.509 certificate using a trust chain.

Use the CreateChainTrustValidator method instead of the ChainTrust property to specify the context or to set chain policy. Chain policy can be used to specify the Enhanced Key Usage (EKU) for which the chain should be validated, or specify revocation checking.

The return value for this static method can be supplied as a parameter to the constructors for the X509SecurityTokenAuthenticator class that take a validator.
