The CMS class is used to digitally sign, encrypt, verify, and decrypt data.

Syntax

ipworksencrypt.cms()

Remarks

The CMS class implements the Cryptographic Message Syntax and allow for various cryptographic operations to be performed on data including:

The class can generate and consume message in a variety of formats including PEM, DER (Binary), and SMIME. The EncryptionAlgorithm and SignatureHashAlgorithm are fully configurable and support a variety of industry standard encryption and hash algorithms.

The class supports additional functionality such as Compression, OAEP, and PSS. The GetRecipientInfo and GetSignerCertInfo methods as well as the RecipientInfo and SignerCertInfo events allow for a dynamic and flexible approach to message processing. Certificate may be loaded ahead of time or as-needed from the events.

Signing Notes

Sign digitally signs the input data with the the specified certificate(s). Certificates are specified by calling AddCertificate or setting the Certificates property.

OutputFormat specifies the encoding of the output message. Valid values are PEM, DER, and SMIME. IncludeCertificates specifies whether the public certificate is included in the signed message. Additional settings allow further configuration. The following properties are applicable when calling this method:

Signature Verification Notes

VerifySignature verifies the signature of the input message.

In order to perform signature verification the public signer's certificate must be present or explicitly specified. In many cases the certificate itself is included in the input message and a certificate does not need to explicitly be set. If a certificate does need to be set for signature verification the certificate may be specified by calling AddRecipientCert or setting RecipientCerts.

When this method is called the SignerCertInfo event fires once for each signature on the message. This event provides details about the signer certificate, as well as the signer certificate itself (if present). The information provided via SignerCertInfo may be used to load an appropriate certificate for verification from within the event. If the CertEncoded parameter of SignerCertInfo is populated the certificate required for verification is already present in the message.

The following property are applicable when calling this method:

If the input message is a detached signature, the original data that was signed must be specified in DetachedSignatureData. In addition the DetachedSignature property must be set to True to instruct the class to treat the input message as a detached signature.

If the input message is compressed EnableCompression must be set to True before calling this method.

Decryption Notes

Decrypt decrypts the input data with the specified certificate. Certificates are specified by calling AddCertificate or setting the Certificates property.

If the certificate used to encrypt the message is not known ahead of time GetRecipientInfo may be called prior to calling Decrypt to obtain information about the recipient (the entity the for which the message was encrypted). If GetRecipientInfo is called, the RecipientInfo event is fired with information about the recipient which may be used to load an appropriate decryption certificate.

CMS.addRecipientCert Method

Used to add recipient certificates used to encrypt messages.

Syntax

async cms.addRecipientCert(certEncoded : Uint8Array): Promise<void>

Remarks

This method adds a public certificate used when Encrypt is called. Public certificates of recipients may be added using this method or by adding a certificate directly to the RecipientCerts property.

CertEncoded must contain the PEM or Base64 encoded public certificate.

CMS.config Method

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

async cms.config(configurationString : string): Promise<string>

Remarks

Config is a generic method available in every class. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the class.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

CMS.decrypt Method

Decrypts the current message.

Syntax

async cms.decrypt(): Promise<void>

Remarks

Decrypt decrypts the input data with the specified certificate. Certificates are specified by calling AddCertificate or setting the Certificates property.

If the certificate used to encrypt the message is not known ahead of time GetRecipientInfo may be called prior to calling Decrypt to obtain information about the recipient (the entity the for which the message was encrypted). If GetRecipientInfo is called, the RecipientInfo event is fired with information about the recipient which may be used to load an appropriate decryption certificate.

The following properties are applicable when calling this method:

Input and Output Properties

The class will determine the source and destination of the input and output based on which properties are set.

The order in which the input properties are checked is as follows:

When a valid source is found the search stops. The order in which the output properties are checked is as follows:

Encrypt and Decrypt a message Cms cms = new Cms(); cms.RecipientCerts.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPublicKeyFile, @"C:\temp\test.cer", "", "*")); cms.InputMessage = "My Data"; cms.Encrypt(); string encryptedMessage = cms.OutputMessage; cms = new Cms(); cms.InputMessage = encryptedMessage; cms.Certificates.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPFXFile, @"C:\temp\test.pfx", "password", "*")); cms.Decrypt(); string plaintextMessage = cms.OutputMessage; Encrypt and Decrypt a message - DER Output Format Cms cms = new Cms(); cms.RecipientCerts.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPublicKeyFile, @"C:\temp\test.cer", "", "*")); cms.InputMessage = "My Data"; cms.OutputFormat = "DER"; cms.Encrypt(); byte[] encryptedMessage = cms.OutputMessageB; //Binary output cms = new Cms(); cms.InputMessageB = encryptedMessage; cms.Certificates.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPFXFile, @"C:\temp\test.pfx", "password", "*")); cms.Decrypt(); string plaintextMessage = cms.OutputMessage; Encrypt and Decrypt - Multiple Recipients Cms cms = new Cms(); cms.RecipientCerts.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPublicKeyFile, @"C:\temp\test.cer", "", "*")); cms.RecipientCerts.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPublicKeyFile, @"C:\temp\test2.cer", "", "*")); cms.InputMessage = "My Data"; cms.Encrypt(); string encryptedMessage = cms.OutputMessage; cms = new Cms(); cms.InputMessage = encryptedMessage; cms.Certificates.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPFXFile, @"C:\temp\test.pfx", "password", "*")); cms.Decrypt(); string plaintextMessage = cms.OutputMessage; Encrypt and Decrypt - Get Recipient Info Cms cms = new Cms(); cms.RecipientCerts.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPublicKeyFile, @"C:\temp\test.cer", "", "*")); cms.InputMessage = "My Data"; cms.Encrypt(); string encryptedMessage = cms.OutputMessage; //If the recipient certificate is not known ahead of time the GetRecipientInfo method may be called //to find information about the certificate. cms = new Cms(); cms.InputMessage = encryptedMessage; cms.OnRecipientInfo += (s, e) => { Console.WriteLine(e.SerialNumber); Console.WriteLine(e.Issuer); if (e.Issuer == "CN=100") //Identify the certificate to load based on event params { cms.Certificates.Add(new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPFXFile, @"C:\temp\test.pfx", "password", "*")); } }; cms.GetRecipientInfo(); cms.Decrypt(); string plaintextMessage = cms.OutputMessage;

CMS.decryptAndVerifySignature Method

Decrypts and verifies the signature of the current message.

Syntax

async cms.decryptAndVerifySignature(): Promise<void>

Remarks

This method decrypts the input data and verifies the signature. Decryption certificates are specified by calling AddCertificate or setting the Certificates property. Certificates used to verify the signature will be taken from the message itself if included, or from the SignerCerts property.

If the certificate used to encrypt the message is not known ahead of time GetRecipientInfo may be called prior to calling Decrypt to obtain information about the recipient (the entity the for which the message was encrypted). If GetRecipientInfo is called, the RecipientInfo event is fired with information about the recipient which may be used to load an appropriate decryption certificate.

In order to perform signature verification the public signer's certificate must be present or explicitly specified. In many cases the certificate itself is included in the input message and a certificate does not need to explicitly be set. If a certificate does need to be set for signature verification the certificate may be specified by calling AddRecipientCert or setting RecipientCerts.

When this method is called the SignerCertInfo event fires once for each signature on the message. This event provides details about the signer certificate, as well as the signer certificate itself (if present). The information provided via SignerCertInfo may be used to load an appropriate certificate for verification from within the event. If the CertEncoded parameter of SignerCertInfo is populated the certificate required for verification is already present in the message.

The following properties are applicable when calling this method:

If the input message is a detached signature, the original data that was signed must be specified in DetachedSignatureData. In addition the DetachedSignature property must be set to True to instruct the class to treat the input message as a detached signature.

If the input message is compressed EnableCompression must be set to True before calling this method.

Input and Output Properties

The class will determine the source and destination of the input and output based on which properties are set.

The order in which the input properties are checked is as follows:

When a valid source is found the search stops. The order in which the output properties are checked is as follows:

Config Settings (class ipworksencrypt.cms)

The class accepts one or more of the following configuration settings. Configuration settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

CMS Config Settings

CompressBeforeSign:   Specifies whether to compress before signing.

When EnableCompression is set to True this property controls whether compression happens before or after signing. If set to True the input data will be compressed before signing. If set to False (default) the input data will be signed and then compressed.

ContentTypeOID:   Specifies the oid for content type.

This setting optionally specifies an OID defining the data content type for the data being processed. This may be set before calling Encrypt, Sign, or SignAndEncrypt.

The default value is 1.2.840.113549.1.7.1 which is the OID for id-data.

CSP:   The Cryptographic Service Provider.

For the Win32 editions, the name of the Cryptographic Service Provider used to provide access to encryption/decryption and signature operations.

NOTE: This config may only be used when the UseCryptoAPI is true.

GenerateSignatureTimestamp:   Whether to generate timestamps in signatures.

If GenerateSignatureTimestamp is True, a timestamp will be generated and added to all signatures created by the class.

The default value is True.

IncludeHeaders:   Tells the class whether to include the headers when encoding the message.

If True (default), the class will include MIME headers when Sign, Encrypt, or SignAndEncrypt are called. If False, only the message will be encoded.

The default value for IncludeHeaders is true.

Note: This setting is only applicable to when OutputFormat is set to SMIME.

IncludeInternalHeaders:   Tells the class whether or not to include the internal headers when encoding the message.

If True, the class will generate and include MIME part headers when Sign, Encrypt, or SignAndEncrypt are called. When VerifySignature, Decrypt, or DecryptAndVerifySignature are called the MIME part headers will be stripped.

When set to False, only the message will be processed, MIME part headers will not be generated or stripped.

The default value for IncludeInternalHeaders is False.

Note: This setting is only applicable to when OutputFormat is set to SMIME.

InputContentTransferEncoding:   Sets the Content-Transfer-Encoding for the signed message.

This setting specifies the Content-Transfer-Encoding header value in signed messages. By default the class will automatically determine the Content-Transfer-Encoding based on the file extension set in InputFile, however this setting may be set to override the determined value or to specify a value if data is read from InputMessage.

If no value is specified and a value cannot be automatically determined the default value 7bit will be used.

Note: This setting is only applicable when OutputFormat is set to SMIME and when calling Sign or SignAndEncrypt and DetachedSignature is True.

InputContentType:   Sets the Content-Type for the signed message.

This setting specifies the Content-Type header value in signed messages. By default the class will automatically determine the Content-Type based on the file extension set in InputFile, however this setting may be set to override the determined value or to specify a value if data is read from InputMessage.

If no value is specified and a value cannot be automatically determined the default value text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" will be used.

Note: This setting is only applicable when OutputFormat is set to SMIME and when calling Sign or SignAndEncrypt and DetachedSignature is True.

InputMessageHeaders:   Message headers.

This setting specifies the headers of the SMIME message if they are not already present in the input message. In most cases the input message itself will contain the necessary headers, however if the headers are and body of the SMIME message are separate, the headers may be specified in this setting before calling Decrypt, DecryptAndVerifySignature, or VerifySignature.

LogDirectory:   The directory on disk where debug logs are written.

This setting specifies a directory on disk to which debug logs will be written during operation. This should only be set for debugging purposes. Files with various extensions will be written to disk at the location specified with debug data for the operation being performed. If LogFilename is not specified the filenames will be in the format yyyy-MM-dd-HH-mm-ss-fff.

LogFilename:   The base filename to use with LogDirectory.

This setting specifies the base filename to use when LogDirectory is set. If specified the name should be a filename without extension. Various files will be logged with different extensions during operation. This setting defines only the base filename. If unspecified the files will be named with a timestamp in the format yyyy-MM-dd-HH-mm-ss-fff.

LogLevel:   The level of detail for log messages.

This setting specifies the level of detail that is logged via the Log event. Possible values are:

0 (None) No events are logged.
1 (Info - default) Informational events are logged.
2 (Verbose) Detailed data is logged.
3 (Debug) Debug data is logged.

OAEPMGF1HashAlgorithm:   The MGF1 hash algorithm used with OAEP.

  • "SHA512"
  • "RIPEMD160"
  • "MD2"
  • "MD5"
  • "MD5SHA1"
OAEPParams:   The hex encoded OAEP parameters.

This configuration setting optionally specifies Optimal Asymmetric Encryption Padding (OAEP) parameters to be used when UseOAEP is set to True. The specified value should be hex encoded.

OAEPRSAHashAlgorithm:   The RSA hash algorithm used with OAEP.

This configuration setting specifies that RSA hash algorithm used when UseOAEP is set to True. The default value is SHA256. Possible values are as follows:

  • "SHA1"
  • "SHA224"
  • "SHA256" (default)
  • "SHA384"
  • "SHA512"
  • "RIPEMD160"
  • "MD2"
  • "MD5"
  • "MD5SHA1"
OutputMessageHeaders:   The SMIME headers of the output message.

When IncludeHeaders is set to False the SMIME headers are not included in the output message itself when Sign, Encrypt, or SignAndEncrypt are called. This setting may be used to obtain the SMIME headers separately. This setting is only applicable when OutputFormat is set to SMIME.

RecipientInfoType:   The type of signer information to include in the signed message.

This configuration setting specifies which type of information about the recipient's encryption certificate is included in the encrypted message. Possible values are as follows:

  • 0 (issuerAndSerialNumber - default)
  • 1 (subjectKeyIdentifier)

Note: When subjectKeyIdentifier is selected, the recipient's encryption certificate must contain the subjectKeyIdentifier extension.

SignatureTimestamp:   The signature timestamp in the signed message.

This setting holds the timestamp of the signature. After calling VerifySignature this setting will hold the timestamp identifying when the signature was created. The timestamp is in UTC time with the format yyyyMMddHHmmss. For instance 20181130223821.

SignerInfoType:   The type of signer information to include in the signed message.

This configuration setting specifies which type of information about the signer certificate is included in the signed message. Possible values are as follows:

  • 0 (issuerAndSerialNumber - default)
  • 1 (subjectKeyIdentifier)

Note: When subjectKeyIdentifier is selected, the signing certificate must contain the subjectKeyIdentifier extension.

UseAlgorithmOIDs:   Whether OIDs are used when providing information about the algorithms.

This configuration setting controls whether the EncryptionAlgorithm parameter of the RecipientInfo event is populated with the name of the algorithm, such as 3DES or the corresponding OID such as 1.2.840.113549.3.7.

The default value is False, and the name of the algorithm is used. Set this to True to use the object identifiers instead.

Base Config Settings

BuildInfo:   Information about the product's build.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the product's build.

CodePage:   The system code page used for Unicode to Multibyte translations.

The default code page is Unicode UTF-8 (65001).
