Windows Phone 7 and Certificates

Hi everyone,


Microsoft has released an article regarding "Windows Phone 7 and Certificates", on December.


This is a great  document that you should read as this is a great way to understand "how" certificates work with Windos Phone 7.

As a main point, I would like to let you know that you can use your own certificates, Root CA and Client Certificates.

Windows Phone 7 uses a Smart certificates installer that will automatically recognize the store to be used when you install the certificate.

This certificate installer on Windows Phone 7 supports .cer, .p7b, and .pfx files.

When installing certificates via email, make sure your mail filters do not block .cer files.
