GeneralRe: Explain to me about C# and X509 certificates. PinmemberGarth J Lancaster20-Jan-13 17:46 
well, if its 'true', the certificate needs to be a valid certificate - if its false, the certificate must match the thumbprint, but need not be valid ...
 
.. so, the interesting question is, what constitutes a valid certificate ?
 
I can think of two possibilites off hand, a) one that has not expired, b) one that has not been revoked - sorry I dont have enough cycles spare right now to look it up - those are just the obvious ones

does it all happen locally?

 
Im pretty sure its up to {whomever} maintains the certificates on a machine to download and apply CRL's/revoke certificates manually - so Im pretty sure that the system doesnt go off to a remote machine - some PGP frameworks could be set up like this iirc
