C# Question

Error: C# The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel

I'm trying to make a request via SSL. The certificate is already installed on the machine and it works via browser.

I am using this request:

System.Text.ASCIIEncoding encoding = new System.Text.ASCIIEncoding();
byte[] data = encoding.GetBytes(request.Content.OuterXml.ToString());
string password = "XXXX";
X509Certificate2 cert = new X509Certificate2("c:\\zzzz.p12", password);
string key = cert.GetPublicKeyString();
string certData = Encoding.ASCII.GetString(cert.Export(X509ContentType.Cert));

Uri uri = new Uri(request.Url);
HttpWebRequest myRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create(uri);
myRequest.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(request.User, request.Password.ToString());
myRequest.Method = "PUT";
myRequest.ContentType = request.ContentType;
myRequest.ContentLength = data.Length;
myRequest.ClientCertificates.Add(cert);

Stream newStream = myRequest.GetRequestStream();
newStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
newStream.Close();

System.IO.StreamReader st = new StreamReader(((HttpWebResponse)myRequest.GetResponse()).GetResponseStream());


Using this code I get this error:


The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust
relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel. --->
System.Security.Authentication.AuthenticationException: The remote
certificate is invalid according to the validation procedure.


What is the problem?

Answer

I solved the problem with this:

ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback = new        
RemoteCertificateValidationCallback
(
   delegate { return true; }
);
