Need help with reading a certificate from a Smartcard in C# RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm working on a project to digitally sign Pdf files. I've solved the part where I use a certificate from the Local Store of the user, but now I'd also like to be able to sign them through a Smartcard device. From what I understand, there two profiles to work with these devices (a high end and a low end). It appears that the first one is handling these certificates.

    Now, all I need to know is how can I grab a certificate from a Smartcard, through a USB Smartcard reader and use it in my program.

    I'm using C# and I'm a novice developer.

    Any help would be highly appreciated. Also, I forgot to say that I prefer a free solution.
