Definition

Selects the local Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate used for authentication.

public delegate System::Security::Cryptography::X509Certificates::X509Certificate ^ LocalCertificateSelectionCallback(System::Object ^ sender, System::String ^ targetHost, X509CertificateCollection ^ localCertificates, X509Certificate ^ remoteCertificate, cli::array <System::String ^> ^ acceptableIssuers);
public delegate System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates.X509Certificate LocalCertificateSelectionCallback(object sender, string targetHost, X509CertificateCollection localCertificates, X509Certificate remoteCertificate, string[] acceptableIssuers);
type LocalCertificateSelectionCallback = delegate of obj * string * X509CertificateCollection * X509Certificate * string[] -> X509Certificate

Examples

The following code example demonstrates a method implementation for this delegate.

 static X509Certificate^ SelectLocalCertificate(
         Object^ sender, 
String^ targetHost, 
X509CertificateCollection^ localCertificates, 
X509Certificate^ remoteCertificate, 
array<String^>^ acceptableIssuers
 )
 {	
     Console::WriteLine("Client is selecting a local certificate.");
     if (acceptableIssuers != nullptr && 
             acceptableIssuers->Length > 0 &&
             localCertificates != nullptr &&
             localCertificates->Count > 0)
     {
         // Use the first certificate that is from an acceptable issuer.
         IEnumerator^ myEnum1 = localCertificates->GetEnumerator();
         while ( myEnum1->MoveNext() )
         {
	X509Certificate^ certificate = safe_cast<X509Certificate^>(myEnum1->Current);
	String^ issuer = certificate->Issuer;
	if ( Array::IndexOf( acceptableIssuers, issuer ) != -1 )
		return certificate;
         }
     }
     if (localCertificates != nullptr &&
             localCertificates->Count > 0)
return localCertificates[0];
             
     return nullptr;
  }

public static X509Certificate SelectLocalCertificate(
    object sender,
    string targetHost, 
    X509CertificateCollection localCertificates, 
    X509Certificate remoteCertificate, 
    string[] acceptableIssuers)
{	
    Console.WriteLine("Client is selecting a local certificate.");
    if (acceptableIssuers != null && 
        acceptableIssuers.Length > 0 &&
        localCertificates != null &&
        localCertificates.Count > 0)
    {
        // Use the first certificate that is from an acceptable issuer.
        foreach (X509Certificate certificate in localCertificates)
        {
            string issuer = certificate.Issuer;
            if (Array.IndexOf(acceptableIssuers, issuer) != -1)
                return certificate;
        }
    }
    if (localCertificates != null &&
        localCertificates.Count > 0)
        return localCertificates[0];
        
    return null;
}

The following code example demonstrates creating an instance of this delegate.

// Server name must match the host name and the name on the host's certificate. 
serverName = args[ 1 ];

// Create a TCP/IP client socket.
TcpClient^ client = gcnew TcpClient( serverName,80 );
Console::WriteLine( L"Client connected." );

// Create an SSL stream that will close the client's stream.
SslStream^ sslStream = gcnew SslStream( 
    client->GetStream(),
    false,
    gcnew RemoteCertificateValidationCallback( ValidateServerCertificate ),
    gcnew LocalCertificateSelectionCallback( SelectLocalCertificate ) );

// Server name must match the host name and the name on the host's certificate. 
serverName = args[0];
// Create a TCP/IP client socket.
TcpClient client = new TcpClient(serverName,80);
Console.WriteLine("Client connected.");
// Create an SSL stream that will close the client's stream.
SslStream sslStream = new SslStream(
    client.GetStream(), 
    false, 
    new RemoteCertificateValidationCallback (ValidateServerCertificate), 
    new LocalCertificateSelectionCallback(SelectLocalCertificate)
    );

Remarks

This delegate is used to construct instances of the SslStream class. The SslStream class is used to help secure information exchanged between a client and server. The client and server use this delegate to select a certificate to be used for authentication.
