Does anyone have samples on SecureBlackBox for Xamarin.Android please?

We don't have samples for Xamarin because the components are non-visual and there's nothing Xamarin- or platform-specific in them. We have plenty of samples for .NET desktop and several samples for ASP.NET which you can use.

There are few things platform specific. I am not able to access certificate storage on Android. Any idea on that? how to do that on Android?

Android until version 4.2 didn't even have a uniform API to access system certificate storages. In Java edition we have code to access Android storages, but not in .NET. Possibly we could implement this code in .NET edition for Xamarin as a custom service.

Could you please clarify what kind of certificate storage you are trying to access. Code sample will help a lot to understand the problem.

Thanks guys for your response,

Am trying to read user certificates stored on device, this code works fine with Windows version,

string CertificateStoreName = "MY";
TElWinCertStorage certstore = new TElWinCertStorage();

But on Xamarin.Android dll, TElWinCertStorage is not found. then how do i access that storage?

Sorry, TElWinCertStorage will not work on Android because its Windows specific class used to work only with Windows stores.

Ya, that makes sense, but then if i want to access Android certificate store what's alternative to that class? Also, there are no samples on Android where we can look for reference.

As Eugene wrote above, there is no such class for Xamarin.Android.
