I saw in one of the stackoverflow link that HTTPBlackBox support client certificate in HTTP request for WP8. When I downloaded the evaluation version I did not see any code samples for WP8 can you please send the same to us. Basically as part of this sample I would like to upload a X509Certificate from the client side (which is stored in a PFX file) to the server similar to what we do in other .NET platforms

WebRequest.ClientCertificate = new X509Certificate (<<cert byte>);

Is this possible in WP8?

Thanks and regards

Thank you for contacting us.

We have desktop samples that you can use as a reference. The code will be the same for WP8.

Certificate can be loaded from a file using TElX509Certificate.LoadFromFilePFX method. Then you should create an instance of TElMemoryCertStorage, add loaded certificate to the storage using TElMemoryCertStorage.Add method and assing this storage to TElHTTPSClient.ClientCertStorage property.

Hi Vsevolod,

Using ILDASM I examined you code. I see that the certificate is used only in case of oAuth and Websocket scenario. Does a simple HTTPS request possible with elevating to web sockets ?

GIGO principle suggests that doing non-sense leads to junk results.

All SSL-related components of SecureBlackbox fully support client-side certificates for authentication during TLS handshake.

Please do check our samples and use them and information Vsevolod has provided as a guide.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
