Hi,, i'm building a client/server program (running on the same machine, and i was woundering how can i send a digital certificate from the client-side to the server-side (Which method to use?), because the server-side will need to extract the public key of the client's certificate to verify a digital signature sent by the client-side??

I was also woundering, when i send the certificate from the client, do i use "Export"?. And what about when the server recieves it, do i use "Import"?????

Need help...pleeeease

Regards. Rania

Digital certs can be written to many formats: DER, PEM, etc. They can be loaded from these same formats. Write to a format, send the data just like anything else, then load from that format on the server side...

But the certificate has many information (such as public key, private key, serial number...etc), so, do i need to send each of these data separatly?? is there a way to send the whole certificate?
