Rebex Certificate Moq for unit tests

asked Oct 16 by michalis.viglakis (200 points)

Hi,
I would like to create a Moq of a Certificate class for my unit tests but this class is sealed, does not have an interface(I see IAsn1Node which cannot be used) and does not have any virtual methods.

I am not also able to instantiate a Certificate object in memory without touching IO and a certificate store via code.

Is there a way to do it?
Thanks

Hi, there are several ways to approach this:

1) You could generate (or copy&paste from Visual Studio's metadata-to-code view) an ICertificate interface from the Certificate class, along with a proxy class that converts all calls to Certificate calls (a duck typing implementation might help with that).

2) You can generate custom certificates in your unit tests using CertificateIssuer API.

3) You can instantiate a Certificate object in memory from a byte array. Or from a string that has been copy&pasted from a certificate file, like this:

string encodedCertData = @"
