VerifyResult Enumeration

VerifyResult Enumeration


Specifies the result of a certificate or signature verification.

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

public enum VerifyResult

Member nameDescription

The X.509 certificate is not available to verify the signature.


The X.509 certificate is not valid.


The signature is not valid.


The specified package or part has no signature.


A reference relationship to the signature was not found.


The verification was successful.

The following example shows how to use the VerifyResult enumeration.

// ------------------------ ValidateSignatures ------------------------
/// <summary>
///   Validates all the digital signatures of a given package.</summary>
/// <param name="package">
///   The package for validating digital signatures.</param>
/// <returns>
///   true if all digital signatures are valid; otherwise false if the
///   package is unsigned or any of the signatures are invalid.</returns>
private static bool ValidateSignatures(Package package)
    if (package == null)
        throw new ArgumentNullException("ValidateSignatures(package)");

    // Create a PackageDigitalSignatureManager for the given Package.
    PackageDigitalSignatureManager dsm =
        new PackageDigitalSignatureManager(package);

    // Check to see if the package contains any signatures.
    if (!dsm.IsSigned)
        return false;   // The package is not signed.

    // Verify that all signatures are valid.
    VerifyResult result = dsm.VerifySignatures(false);
    if (result != VerifyResult.Success)
        return false;   // One or more digital signatures are invalid.

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

}// end:ValidateSignatures()
