Hi Fredy,

You can check if a certificate is issued by a certain CA by loading CA's certificate and comparing it's public key with your certificate issuer's public key. So, let's say 'cert' is the certificate you are checking and 'CA' is the CA's certificate. You can check if 'cert.Issuer.PublicKey' is the same as 'CA.PublicKey' - if they are, the 'cert' is issued by CA.

I hope this information helps.
