  • Seems there aren't any method to add "MY store" certs that can be recognized by .NET Core except by methods provided by .NET Core itself.


    For System store you can add it to /etc/ssl/certs , however beware that as of Core v2.1 a bad cert can choke the system.

  • Hi subbarao ram,

    Thank you for posting here.

    Since your question is more related to Linux, you could post a new thread in Linux forum for suitable support.


    The CLR Forum discuss and ask questions about .NET Framework Base Classes (BCL) such as Collections, I/O, Regigistry, Globalization, Reflection. Also discuss all the other Microsoft libraries that are built on or extend the .NET Framework, including Managed Extensibility Framework (MEF), Charting Controls, CardSpace, Windows Identity Foundation (WIF), Point of Sale (POS), Transactions.

    Best Regards,

  • Humm... I read the question again, and found it is something related to IBM MQ.NET, so you should ask at their support site.

    Btw, you had better set to to null and set MQSSLKEYR environment variable to point to your key repository.
