  • Hi,

    If you're looking to send an X509 certificate along with requests generated by the client library, you can see an example of how to do so in this thread:


    Does that help?

  • I followed same steps as in that URL. I did not get any errors but I did not see that is received in server(ADo.NetDataService). Eventhough certificate property did not return null , all the property values like Subject, Keys...are blank. What Iam missing . also How Do I see X509 Cert being passed in Fiddler?



    override void OnStartProcessingRequest(ProcessRequestArgs args)

  • Kali ,
     You might want to simplify your problem to be a bit more easy to understand/troubleshoot.
     The way this is currently setup , a lot of things can go wrong and its harder to troubleshoot this or offer any advice in this forum .

     On the client side , remove the DataServiceContext and make a request to a WCF service ( instead of a Data Service ) using  the HttpWebRequest class.
    Set the certificates on the HWR object and then see if you are able to access properties of the certificate in a WCF service
     Once you have a simple scenario running which at least confirms that you have the webserver and the client setup the right way to exchange certificates ,
     try going with the Data Service and the client library .
