Retrieval of LDAP X509 Certificate from Windows certificate store

Tony Sheehy 8 years ago • updated by anonymous 4 years ago 3

A fairly simple improvement that might become expected functionality on release - is to facilitate the retrieval of LDAP X509 Certificates from the local windows certificate store. As far as an implementation of this is concerned, the System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Store would support this method of retrieval.

I'm not sure this is possible/worthwhile. Although there's a standard/unique-identifier for certificate stores there doesn't appear to be a friendly identifier for individual certificates. There is a FriendlyName which appears to be the name of the party the certificate was issued to, but this would require some more research, so a determination should be made as to the requirements of this issue.

Reopened to change resolution.

This is not worth the time as there are no solutions that currently require this.
