After the upgrade to MonoTouch 6.0.6 I am no longer able to connect to websites with a not yet trusted SSL certificate.
I used the following lines of code that aren't called within a MonoTouch project after the upgrade:
ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback += ((sender, certificate, chain, sslPolicyErrors) => true);
ServicePointManager.SecurityProtocol = SecurityProtocolType.Ssl3;
It still works with a console application project though.
The callback works. However MonoTouch 6.0.6 has an issue with some SSLv3 servers. In this case the connection might fail before reaching your ServerCertificateValidationCallback callback.
The issue is already fixed and will be in the next stable update. Note that, if possible, you should use TLSv1 for all encrypted HTTPS traffic (there's no technical/security benefit to use SSLv3).
> It still works with a console application project though.
It depends on the version of Mono being executed. One recent version has the same (now fixed) issue.

You need to downgrade to 6.0.4 and it can be installed on top of 6.0.6.
Previous releases can be downloaded from the customer portal.
