Silverlight 2 can pass client certificate
When we started working with Silverlight 2 Beta 1, we’ve noticed that there is a problem accessing services which reside on a secured server (secured with CheckPoint Secure Remote) – The silverlight client just didn’t pass the client cerificate needed to access the server.
Today, I’ve found a post mentioning an important new feature of the RTW version – calling secure (SSL) services from silverlight 2. This feature mainly allows calling https services while your XAP resides on an http address (kind-a cross domain problem), but more important – silverlight can now pass client certificates to the other server (whether is https or http secured with a smart card).
After putting the clientaccesspolicy.xaml file on the server, we’ve tried again to call a secured server from our client, and voila, it worked !!!
Another security problem solved.
