X509 Certficate Reading


I’m attempting to read a clients certificate using the following c# code:

            var store = new X509Store(StoreLocation.CurrentUser);


            var certificates = store.Certificates;
            foreach (var certificate in certificates)
                var friendlyName = certificate.FriendlyName;
                var xname = certificate.GetName(); //obsolete


The problem is that it is giving details for the certificate on the server that the ASP code is running.

Any ideas? I’ve tried changing the constructor to

            var store = new X509Store(StoreName.My, StoreLocation.CurrentUser);
but I still can’t access it.
