SharePoint Web Service SSL and Smart Card

  Asked By: Aurelio    Date: Sep 09    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1700

I have a functioning web service within a development SharePoint
server, however it will eventually be deployed to a server with SSL
and Smart Card. I've seen some blogs on how to accept all
certificates (bypassing the dialog), but is there a way to call a web
service behind a site that requires a smart card?

When accessing a web  service that requires  authentication, the client
program needs to set the Credentials property on the proxy class (the
one generated when setting a web reference). I am not familiar with
Smart Card authentication mechanisms, but perhaps the library you are
using provides a class that implements ICredentials...

We are running SPPS 2003 and IIS maps the client certificate to Active
directory. Sharepoint accepts authentication provided by IIS.
