CertificateName Property  

Gets and sets the common name for the client certificate.


object.CertificateName [= name ]


This property sets the common name or friendly name of the certificate that should be used to establish the connection with the server. It is only required that you set this property value if the server requires a client certificate for authentication. If this property is not set, a client certificate will not be provided to the server. If a certificate name is specified, the certificate must have a private key associated with it, otherwise the connection attempt will fail because the control will be unable to create a security context for the session.

Certificates may be installed and viewed on the local system using the Certificate Manager that is included with the Windows operating system. For more information, refer to the documentation for the Microsoft Management Console.
