P/Invoking CryptoAPI in .NET (C# version)


Hi, welcome back,


Sometimes we need to call CryptoAPI from .NET because classes in System.Security.Cryptography namespace have their limitations. For instance, we can’t create a temporary key container with RSACryptoServiceProvider, but we can do it with CRYPT_VERIFYCONTEXT flag and CryptAcquireContext API. RSACryptoServiceProvider will end up calling CryptAcquireContext, but we can’t pass CRYPT_VERIFYCONTEXT to it.


 


You can find more info about all this here in MSDN:


Extending .NET Cryptography with CAPICOM and P/Invoke


 


Here you have the most common P/Invoke CryptoAPI declarations I’ve successfully used in the past:

I hope this helps.

PS:  A new version of .NET Framework is coming out while you read this. Hopefully we won’t need to use CryptoAPI directly as often as we did with .NET Framework 1.1/2.0.


PS: I also have VB.NET declarations. I will post them soon.

    Hi,

    I want to handle "ENter PIN" dialog and use my own, or setting PIN number default value. how can i do that.

    thanks in advance.

    Thanks

    It’s very useful for me.

  5. John says:

    Hi, can you show me example of how to use these methods?

    Thank you

  6. There are samples in my blog. Just click on P/Invoke tag in the tag cloud to find them.

    Hi, i want to create a C# librairie to interface with HSM using cryptoki.dll. Can you help me please??

    I don't know how to start.

    Regards,

  8. Don't know that library, sorry. If you know the functions it exposes, then you need to use .NET's p/invoke mechanism to be able to call them, like I do with the MS functions in this post. Unfortunatelly I cannot teach you p/invoke within this blog. If you have specific problems when implementing p/invoke, you may open support cases with us so we can assist you properly.

    Regards,

    Alex

  9. loupoo says:

    ok, the function are write in C, but i dont'know how to p/invoke this:

    CK_DEFINE_FUNCTION(CK_RV, C_GetFunctionList)(

    CK_FUNCTION_LIST_PTR_PTR ppFunctionList

    );

    ###########################

    CK_FUNCTION_LIST_PTR is a pointer to a CK_FUNCTION_LIST.

    CK_FUNCTION_LIST_PTR_PTR is a pointer to a CK_FUNCTION_LIST_PTR.

    ############################

    typedef struct CK_FUNCTION_LIST {

    CK_C_GetTokenInfo C_GetTokenInfo;

    CK_C_GetMechanismList C_GetMechanismList;

    ….}

    ################

    please.

  10. Hi loupoo,

    There is a lot of info missing there, like what are all those CK_C_* types… As I said, assiting with this kind of p/invoke questions is out of the scope of this blog. You may open a support case if you need help. And you should know before hand what all those types correspond to: int, float, bool, void *, struct, etc., etc.

    Regards,
