X509RevocationFlag Enum


Specifies which X509 certificates in the chain should be checked for revocation.

public enum class X509RevocationFlag
public enum X509RevocationFlag
type X509RevocationFlag = 
Public Enum X509RevocationFlag


EndCertificateOnly 0

Only the end certificate is checked for revocation.

EntireChain 1

The entire chain of certificates is checked for revocation.

ExcludeRoot 2

The entire chain, except the root certificate, is checked for revocation.


The following example opens the current user's personal certificate store, allows the user to select a certificate, then writes certificate and certificate chain information to the console. The output depends on the certificate you select.

//Output chain information of the selected certificate.
X509Chain ^ ch = gcnew X509Chain;
ch->ChainPolicy->RevocationMode = X509RevocationMode::Online;
ch->Build( certificate );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain Information" );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain revocation flag: {0}", ch->ChainPolicy->RevocationFlag );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain revocation mode: {0}", ch->ChainPolicy->RevocationMode );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain verification flag: {0}", ch->ChainPolicy->VerificationFlags );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain verification time: {0}", ch->ChainPolicy->VerificationTime );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain status length: {0}", ch->ChainStatus->Length );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain application policy count: {0}", ch->ChainPolicy->ApplicationPolicy->Count );
Console::WriteLine( "Chain certificate policy count: {0} {1}", ch->ChainPolicy->CertificatePolicy->Count, Environment::NewLine );
//Output chain information of the selected certificate.
X509Chain ch = new X509Chain();
ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationMode = X509RevocationMode.Online;
ch.Build (certificate);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain Information");
Console.WriteLine ("Chain revocation flag: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationFlag);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain revocation mode: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationMode);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain verification flag: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.VerificationFlags);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain verification time: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.VerificationTime);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain status length: {0}", ch.ChainStatus.Length);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain application policy count: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.ApplicationPolicy.Count);
Console.WriteLine ("Chain certificate policy count: {0} {1}", ch.ChainPolicy.CertificatePolicy.Count, Environment.NewLine);
'Output chain information of the selected certificate.
Dim ch As New X509Chain()
ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationMode = X509RevocationMode.Online
Console.WriteLine("Chain Information")
Console.WriteLine("Chain revocation flag: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationFlag)
Console.WriteLine("Chain revocation mode: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.RevocationMode)
Console.WriteLine("Chain verification flag: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.VerificationFlags)
Console.WriteLine("Chain verification time: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.VerificationTime)
Console.WriteLine("Chain status length: {0}", ch.ChainStatus.Length)
Console.WriteLine("Chain application policy count: {0}", ch.ChainPolicy.ApplicationPolicy.Count)
Console.WriteLine("Chain certificate policy count: {0} {1}", ch.ChainPolicy.CertificatePolicy.Count, Environment.NewLine)
