PackageDigitalSignatureManager.VerifySignatures Method

Verifies the signatures on all signed parts within the package.

Namespace:  System.IO.Packaging
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)

public VerifyResult VerifySignatures(
	bool exitOnFailure
)

Parameters

exitOnFailure
Type: System.Boolean
true to exit on first failure; otherwise, false to continue and check all signatures.

Return Value

Type: System.IO.Packaging.VerifyResult
Success (value 0) if all signatures are verified successfully; otherwise, an enumeration that identifies the error.

This method verifies only the digital signatures; it does not verify the related X.509 certificates. The VerifyCertificate method can be used to verify the X.509 certificates.

The following example shows how to use this method to validate all signed parts within a package. For the complete sample, see Creating a Package with a Digital Signature Sample.

    if (!dsm.IsSigned)
        return false;   // The package is not signed.

    // Verify that all signatures are valid.

        return false;   // One or more digital signatures are invalid.

    // else if (result == VerifyResult.Success)
    return true;        // All signatures are valid.

}// end:ValidateSignatures()
