Description Benjamin Broll 2014-10-03 13:13:37 UTC
With the latest beta version of Xamarin.Android (as of Oct 3 2014; I don't know where to find the exact version of Xamarin.Android), the following stack trace appears when connecting to an HTTPS-based URL which uses a self-signed certificate. The verification of the certificate does not fail (as it should), instead communication to the server is allowed.

ERROR building certificate chain: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Argument is out of range.

I have checked this issue and unable to reproduce it.

I tried following steps to reproduce it.
1.Create a Xamarin Android application.
2.Did some code on button click to redirect on HTTPS  based url.
button.Click += (sender, e) => {
				var uri = Android.Net.Uri.Parse ("https://www.google.co.in/");
                var intent = new Intent (Intent.ActionView, uri);  
                StartActivity (intent);
3.Run the application.

I observed that i am able to redirect to a HTTPS based url successfully.

Let me know if i missed anything to reproduce it.

Comment 2 Benjamin Broll 2014-10-06 14:32:22 UTC
In our case, we're working with System.Net.HttpWebRequest and it still occurs with the test domain that we're using. I have attached a small test project which exhibits the problematic behavior on my machine.
