X509ChainStatus Structure

X509ChainStatus Structure


Provides a simple structure for storing X509 chain status and error information.

Namespace:   System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public struct X509ChainStatus


Specifies the status of the X509 chain.


Specifies a description of the ChainStatus value.


Indicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal.(Inherited from ValueType.)


Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from ValueType.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns the fully qualified type name of this instance.(Inherited from ValueType.)

This structure is used in conjunction with the ChainStatus property.

Legacy Code Example

The following example opens the current user's personal certificate store, allows the user to select a certificate, then writes certificate and certificate chain information to the console. The output depends on the certificate you select.

//Output chain information of the selected certificate.
X509Chain ch = new X509Chain();
ch.Build (certificate);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain Information");
ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationMode = X509RevocationMode.Online;
Console.WriteLine ("Chain revocation flag: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationFlag);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain revocation mode: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationMode);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain verification flag: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.VerificationFlags);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain verification time: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.VerificationTime);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain status length: {0}", ch.ChainStatus.Length);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain application policy count: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.ApplicationPolicy.Count);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain certificate policy count: {0} {1}", ch.ChainPolicy.CertificatePolicy.Count, Environment.NewLine);
