[Solved] .NET Core: How to access Windows Credential Manager if running on Windows (otherwise ignore)?

Heinrich Ulbricht Asks: .NET Core: How to access Windows Credential Manager if running on Windows (otherwise ignore)?
So far, to store and retrieve secrets (like credentials) in .NET applications, I successfully used the CredentialManagement package on Windows. Now I’d like to go cross-platform.

So I need to access the Windows Credential Manager from a .NET Core cross-platform application. If it’s running on Windows – use the Credential Manager. If it’s running on Linux – don’t crash (use key chain or whatever, that is the next step).

How would this be done?

(Note: I’m open to alternatives to the Windows Credential Manager but they should provide an equal level of protection.)
