SSL client authentication using application specific software-based certificates and keys (Windows Store apps)

Some financial institutions issue account holders software-based certificates rather than smart card-based certificates. The Windows Store app from such institutions enrolls for the certificate from the institution's web server and installs the certificate and private key to a per-app specific store. The certificate authenticates a user to the financial institution web server. For more information about using the manifest to specify certificate stores, see the Extensions topic.
