IssueHow to calculate certificate thumbprint
ResolutionThe certificate thumbprint displayed by Microsoft is the digest of the whole certificate (obtained by calling C_GetCertDER() ). To calculate the digest, use the RSA BSAFE Crypto-C functions B_DigestInit(), B_DigestUpdate(), and B_DigestFinal(). You can take a look at the sample code in RSA BSAFE Crypto-C for more information on digesting data.
