  • Question

  • Hi,

    The question i have has been answered in the link below, if certificate pinning is possible in a WinRT application:

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/f5821194-4c40-48e7-976c-3dec8864ac59/servicepointmanagerservercertificatevalidationcallback?forum=winappswithcsharp

    The final answer is Certificate Pinning is not possible in a WinRT application, I would like to know if any progress on this has been made since then, because that was almost 4 years ago? I have tried everything I could and I'm now at the point where I have to report to our security architect that it's not possible in a WinRT application and that we have to drop the Store app for because it's a security risk, and rewrite it as a desktop application, it's going to be quite costly so before we start I would like confirmation from you?

    Hope to hear from you soon,
