Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public X509RevocationMode RevocationMode { get; set; }

One of the values in X509RevocationMode: NoCheck, Online, or Offline.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

Attempted to set when credential is read-only.

When using certificates, the system validates that the client certificate has not been revoked, by checking that the client certificate is not in the revoked certificate list. This check can be performed either by checking online or by checking against a cached revocation list. Revocation checking can be turned off by setting this property to NoCheck.

The following code shows how to set this property.

ClientCredentials creds = new ClientCredentials();

// Configure chain trust.

creds.ServiceCertificate.Authentication.CertificateValidationMode =
X509CertificateValidationMode.ChainTrust;

creds.ServiceCertificate.Authentication.RevocationMode =
X509RevocationMode.NoCheck;

The property can also be set in a configuration file.
