I created a C# Web Application which uses SAML.

<keys>
            <add thumbprint="5635c661a1e77a0f4a46abd3234678631869"/>
          </keys>

Open in new window


The application contains this line. How can i generate my own thumbprint key?
Do i need the HTTPS certificate for this? Is the SAML thumbprint a property of the HTTPS certificate?

Thanks in advanced

It is the thumbprint of the Certificate you are using

if you have the https cert.pem, you can get from openssl e.g. openssl x509 -in cert.pem -sha1 -noout -fingerprint (assuming it is sha1 for digest) or you can simply see and verify the thumbprint in the Certificate Information window for the .cer or .crt file in the web service

Thanks for the replies

This is the same thumbprint which can be found in IE? Tools --> Internet Options -> Certificates

Yes, the IE options leads you to the cert store where you can click on the certificate, see the "Details" > "Field" named "Thumbprint" and the "Thumbprint Algorithm"
