Client Certificate Support for Windows metro apps RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to create a small test application which would connect to the Windows Azure Management APIs.

    To do this, I need to use a client certificate. But I am unable to find any proper documentation or sample which would explain how this could be done.

    I am trying to find a way to implement the following code using a windows 8 App.

    If my reply answers your question, please mark this post as answered.

    If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • Hi Guys,

    Subramanian : I think I just missed specifying that I am looking for a sample in Xaml and C#.  I looked at the sample that you suggested before posting this. But I couldn't get much out of it.

    Matt : Thanks for the link, I tried using the steps mentioned there. But I am getting the following exception:

    "InnerException = {"The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel."}

    "   at System.Net.HttpWebRequest.EndGetResponse(IAsyncResult asyncResult)

        at System.Net.Http.HttpClientHandler.GetResponseCallback(IAsyncResult ar)"

    Please note that I am trying to implement the following article:


    Not sure if it would be possible for you, but could you look at the article and see if you can implement it or have someone implement it? I think it would be a good sample that could be shared by Microsoft for windows Azure management if you can implement the code in the article.
