The X509Certificate class represents an X509 v3 digital certificate. Instances of this class are created using the static CreateFromCertFile( ) and CreateFromSignedFile( ) methods, which obtain the certificate details from an X509 v3 certificate file or a signed file, respectively. The class defines 17 methods that provide information about the certificate; for example, the GetName( ) method returns the name of the principle to which the certificate was issued and the GetIssuerName( ) method returns the name of the certification authority. Some methods are paired together, returning the same data formatted in different ways; for example, the GetPublicKey( ) method returns the certificate public key as an array of bytes, while the GetPublicKeyString( ) method return the key as a hexadecimal string.
