SslCertBinding.Net is a library for .NET and Windows and provides a simple API to add, remove or retrieve bindings between a https port and a SSL certificate.

This library can be considered as a programmatic alternative to Windows command line tools netsh http show|add|delete sslcert or httpcfg query|set|delete ssl.


SslCertBinding.Net is available as a NuGet package.

Install-Package SslCertBinding.Net


ICertificateBindingConfiguration config = new CertificateBindingConfiguration();
var ipPort = new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Parse(""), 443); 
var certificateThumbprint = "372680E4AEC4A57CAE698307347C65D3CE38AF60";
var appId = Guid.Parse("214124cd-d05b-4309-9af9-9caa44b2b74a");

// add a new binding record
config.Bind( new CertificateBinding(
	certificateThumbprint, StoreName.My, ipPort, appId)); //returns false

// get a binding record
var certificateBinding = config.Query(ipPort)[0];

// set an option and update the binding record
certificateBinding.Options.DoNotVerifyCertificateRevocation = true;
config.Bind(certificateBinding); //returns true

// remove the binding record


Why unit tests are failing on my PC?

Cerificates configuration needs elevated permissions. Run Visual Studio as an Administrator before running unit tests.

I am getting the error "A specified logon session does not exist. It may have already been terminated". How to fix it?

Make sure that you have installed your certificate properly, certificate has a privaite key, your private key store is not broken, etc. Try binding your certificate with netsh CLI tool. If you get the same error it should not be a bug in SslCertBinding.Net.
