Getting thumprint from certificate of any URL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using web-request, I am trying to etch information about website certificates.

    $url = ""
    $webRequest = [Net.WebRequest]::Create("$url")
    try { $webRequest.GetResponse() } catch {}
    $cert = $webRequest.ServicePoint.Certificate

    I am getting information about the certificate.

    But for the URL, in which certificate is not trusted, how we can get the certificate information using PowerShell. As, when I try the same URL using chrome, I am getting warning but still can access the certificate information
