How to generate a client type PKCS #12 Certificate and use it in C# Apps

Dear all
I have requirement to use a client certificate in code:
<<X509SecurityToken x509Token = new X509SecurityToken(x509Certificate);>>

x509Certificate being a client type PKCS #12 Certificate

Which i need to reference with the following code
x509Certifate.Import("informing.p12", PasswordCert, X509KeyStorageFlags.DefaultKeySet);

my question is this, how can I create a client Certificate type PKCS #12
and reference it in my code?

I have tried something like
makecert -iv informing.key -ic informing.cer -eku 1.3.6.1.5.5.7.3.1 -n "CN=localhost" -p12 informing.p12 s3kr3t

Not sure if the right key is being generated .. I am getting some bad command errors.
I need to be able to generate the key and test that it existed before calling in in my Apps.

Thanks for your Help

Hi,

I not knowing how to create them directly, but using this library from ChilkatSoft makes a lot of these thing easier for me to code. If you have some bucks to spend then have a look on this, http://www.chilkatsoft.com/encryption-features.asp
