x509certificate2.verify method description RRS feed

  • Question

  • HI 

    I was wondering when i came across one of the .net class library method (x509certificate2.verify()) what exactly this method does?

    How this methods says the specified certificate is valid or not before returning true or false.


    I have a certificate which is from a trusted party and its working fine for couple of days and suddenly it stoped working for some time and started working after few hours or few days.

    verified certificate is not expired.

    So can i know how this validation works. where exactly it checks for certificate chain? it checks in local system for trusted party or it verifies to by going to the certificate authority to check is that authority is available/ not available ?


    Can any one explain the code behind this method


    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Thank you
