Properties   Methods   Events   Config Settings   Errors  

The PPOP component is used retrieve and process OpenPGP encrypted and/or signed messages from Internet Post Office servers (POP).

Syntax

TipgPPOP

Remarks

The PPOP component implements a standard internet post office (POP3) client, as specified in RFC 1725, and supports decrypting and verifying signatures of encrypted and signed emails using OpenPGP. You can send an OpenPGP signed and encrypted message using the PSMTP component by calling the Encrypt, Sign, and SignAndEncrypt methods.

Connect to the Server

To connect to a MailServer, first set the appropriate User and Password and then connect by calling the Connect method. Upon successful connection to the MailServer, the number of waiting messages is shown by the MessageCount property. A message is selected by setting the MessageNumber property to a number between 1 and MessageCount (inclusive). Then, the message text and/or headers are received by calling the Retrieve method.

Receive Messages

The message text is received through the Transfer event, whereas the message headers are received through the Header event. Additionally, up to MaxLines from the message body are provided in the MessageText property. The StartTransfer and EndTransfer events are fired at the beginning and end of message transmission. The PITrail event provides a trace of the interaction between the client and server (excluding message transfers).

Verify

To verify the signature of a message specify the public key to be used for signature verification by setting the SignerKey* properties. For instance: PPOP1.SignerKeyCount = 1 PPOP1.SignerKeyKeyring(0) = "c:\my_keyring_dir" PPOP1.SignerKeyUserId(0) = "sender@nsoftware.com" The specified public key will be used to verify the signature when calling VerifySignature.

Decrypt

To process an encrypted or signed message first retrieve the message text and headers by calling Retrieve. To decrypt a message specify the private key to be used for decryption by setting the Key* properties. For instance: PPOP1.KeyCount = 1 PPOP1.KeyKeyring(0) = "c:\my_keyring_dir" PPOP1.KeyUserId(0) = "recipient@nsoftware.com" PPOP1.KeyPassphrase(0) = "password" The specified private key will be used to decrypt the message when calling Decrypt.

Decrypt and Verify

To decrypt and verify in one step, you can call DecryptAndVerifySignature. Set the public key of the sender in the and the private key to be used for decryption in the Key* properties .

20 (cstSecurityKey)The certificate is present on a physical security key accessible via a PKCS11 interface.

To use a security key the necessary data must first be collected using the CertMgr component. The ListStoreCertificates method may be called after setting CertStoreType to cstSecurityKey, CertStorePassword to the PIN, and CertStore to the full path of the PKCS11 dll. The certificate information returned in the CertList event's CertEncoded parameter may be saved for later use.

When using a certificate, pass the previously saved security key information as the Store and set StorePassword to the PIN.

Code Example: SSH Authentication with Security Key certmgr.CertStoreType = CertStoreTypes.cstSecurityKey; certmgr.OnCertList += (s, e) => { secKeyBlob = e.CertEncoded; }; certmgr.CertStore = @"C:\Program Files\OpenSC Project\OpenSC\pkcs11\opensc-pkcs11.dll"; certmgr.CertStorePassword = "123456"; //PIN certmgr.ListStoreCertificates(); sftp.SSHCert = new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstSecurityKey, secKeyBlob, "123456", "*"); sftp.SSHUser = "test"; sftp.SSHLogon("myhost", 22);

21 (cstBCFKSFile)The certificate store is the name of a file that contains a BCFKS (Bouncy Castle FIPS Key Store). Note: this store type is only available in Java and .NET.
22 (cstBCFKSBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in BCFKS (Bouncy Castle FIPS Key Store) format. Note: this store type is only available in Java and .NET.
99 (cstAuto)The store type is automatically detected from the input data. This setting may be used with both public and private keys and can detect any of the supported formats automatically.

SSLCertSubject Property (PPOP Component)

This is the subject of the certificate used for client authentication.

Syntax

property SSLCertSubject: String read get_SSLCertSubject write set_SSLCertSubject;

Default Value

''

Remarks

This is the subject of the certificate used for client authentication.

This property must be set after all other certificate properites are set. When this property is set, a search is performed in the current certificate store certificate with matching subject.

If a matching certificate is found, the property is set to the full subject of the matching certificate.

If an exact match is not found, the store is searched for subjects containing the value of the property.

If a match is still not found, the property is set to an empty string, and no certificate is selected.

The special value "*" picks a random certificate in the certificate store.

The certificate subject is a comma separated list of distinguished name fields and values. For instance "CN=www.server.com, OU=test, C=US, E=support@nsoftware.com". Common fields and their meanings are displayed below.

FieldMeaning
CNCommon Name. This is commonly a host name like www.server.com.
OOrganization
OUOrganizational Unit
LLocality
SState
CCountry
EEmail Address

If a field value contains a comma it must be quoted.

SSLEnabled Property (PPOP Component)

Whether TLS/SSL is enabled.

Syntax

property SSLEnabled: Boolean read get_SSLEnabled write set_SSLEnabled;

Default Value

false

Remarks

This setting specifies whether TLS/SSL is enabled in the component. When False (default) the component operates in plaintext mode. When True TLS/SSL is enabled.

TLS/SSL may also be enabled by setting SSLStartMode. Setting SSLStartMode will automatically update this property value.

This property is not available at design time.

SSLProvider Property (PPOP Component)

This specifies the SSL/TLS implementation to use.

Syntax

property SSLProvider: TipgTSSLProviders read get_SSLProvider write set_SSLProvider;
TipgTSSLProviders = ( sslpAutomatic, sslpPlatform, sslpInternal );

Default Value

sslpAutomatic

Remarks

This property specifies the SSL/TLS implementation to use. In most cases the default value of 0 (Automatic) is recommended and should not be changed. When set to 0 (Automatic) the component will select whether to use the platform implementation or the internal implementation depending on the operating system as well as the TLS version being used.

Possible values are:

0 (sslpAutomatic - default)Automatically selects the appropriate implementation.
1 (sslpPlatform) Uses the platform/system implementation.
2 (sslpInternal) Uses the internal implementation.

Additional Notes

In most cases using the default value (Automatic) is recommended. The component will select a provider depending on the current platform.

When Automatic is selected, on Windows the component will use the platform implementation. On Linux/macOS the component will use the internal implementation. When TLS 1.3 is enabled via SSLEnabledProtocols the internal implementation is used on all platforms.

SSLServerCertEncoded Property (PPOP Component)

This is the certificate (PEM/base64 encoded).

Syntax

property SSLServerCertEncoded: String read get_SSLServerCertEncoded;
property SSLServerCertEncodedB: TBytes read get_SSLServerCertEncodedB;

Default Value

''

Remarks

This is the certificate (PEM/base64 encoded). This property is used to assign a specific certificate. The Store and Subject properties also may be used to specify a certificate.

When Encoded is set, a search is initiated in the current Store for the private key of the certificate. If the key is found, Subject is updated to reflect the full subject of the selected certificate; otherwise, Subject is set to an empty string.

This property is read-only and not available at design time.

SSLStartMode Property (PPOP Component)

Determines how the component starts the SSL negotiation.

Syntax

property SSLStartMode: TipgTSSLStartModes read get_SSLStartMode write set_SSLStartMode;
TipgTSSLStartModes = ( sslAutomatic, sslImplicit, sslExplicit, sslNone );

Default Value

sslNone

Remarks

The SSLStartMode property may have one of the following values:

0 (sslAutomatic)If the remote port is set to the standard plaintext port of the protocol (where applicable), the component will behave the same as if SSLStartMode is set to sslExplicit. In all other cases, SSL negotiation will be implicit (sslImplicit).
1 (sslImplicit)The SSL negotiation will start immediately after the connection is established.
2 (sslExplicit)The component will first connect in plaintext, and then explicitly start SSL negotiation through a protocol command such as STARTTLS.
3 (sslNone - default)No SSL negotiation, no SSL security. All communication will be in plaintext mode.

Timeout Property (PPOP Component)

A timeout for the component.

Syntax

property Timeout: Integer read get_Timeout write set_Timeout;

Default Value

60

Remarks

If the Timeout property is set to 0, all operations will run uninterrupted until successful completion or an error condition is encountered.

If Timeout is set to a positive value, the component will wait for the operation to complete before returning control.

The component will use DoEvents to enter an efficient wait loop during any potential waiting period, making sure that all system events are processed immediately as they arrive. This ensures that the host application does not "freeze" and remains responsive.

If Timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the component raises an exception.

Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by Timeout seconds when any amount of data is successfully sent or received.

The default value for the Timeout property is 60 seconds.

User Property (PPOP Component)

This property includes the user identifier for the mailbox.

Syntax

property User: String read get_User write set_User;

Default Value

''

Remarks

This property contains the user identifier for the mailbox. This property must be set before the component connects to the MailServer.

Config Method (PPOP Component)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

function Config(ConfigurationString: String): String;

Remarks

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

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the component, 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.

Connect Method (PPOP Component)

This method connects to the mail server and attempts to log in.

Syntax

procedure Connect();

Remarks

This method connects to the mail server and attempts to log in using the current User and Password. Then it retrieves the initial statistics about the mailbox contents (MessageCount and TotalSize).

Example. Connect to POP Mailbox:

POPControl.MailServer = "MyPOPServer" POPControl.User = "username" POPControl.Password = "password" POPControl.Connect() POPControl.MessageNumber = 1 POPControl.Retrieve() MessageText = POPControl.MessageText MessageHeaders = POPControl.MessageHeaders

Decrypt Method (PPOP Component)

Decrypts the message.

Syntax

procedure Decrypt();

Remarks

This method decrypts the specified message.

The message will be decrypted using the keys specified in the Key* properties. Before decryption begins the component will fire the RecipientInfo event with information about the encrypted message, including the key used to encrypt the message. Within this event you may use the available information to load the correct key into Keys.

DecryptAndVerifySignature Method (PPOP Component)

Decrypts and verifies the signature of the message.

Syntax

procedure DecryptAndVerifySignature();

Remarks

This method attempts to both decrypt and verify the signature of the message. All of the properties affected by calling the Decrypt and VerifySignature methods are affected in the same manner.

This method may be used when the data is signed, encrypted, or signed and encrypted. For instance, if the data is encrypted but not signed you may still use this method and the component will perform the decryption without error.

The message will be decrypted using the keys specified in the Key* properties. Before decryption begins the component will fire the RecipientInfo event with information about the encrypted message, including the key used to encrypt the message. Within this event you may use the available information to load the correct key into Keys.

The message will be verified using the keys specified in the SignerKey* properties. Before verification begins the component will fire the SignatureInfo event with information about the signature including the key used to sign the message. Within this event you may use the information available to load the correct key into the SignerKey* properties.

By default, if the signature is not valid the component raises an exception. The configuration setting RequireValidSignature may be set to False to disable this requirement. When RequireValidSignature is set to False, the Status parameter of the VerificationStatus event should be checked to determine the result of the operation.

NOTE: This method does not attempt to check the validity of the signing key itself.

Delete Method (PPOP Component)

This method deletes a message specified by MessageNumber on the server.

Syntax

procedure Delete();

Remarks

This method asks the MailServer to delete the message specified by MessageNumber. The message will not actually be deleted from the server until the connection is closed. To cancel a previous Delete, use the Reset method.

Disconnect Method (PPOP Component)

This method disconnects from the mail server.

Syntax

procedure Disconnect();

Remarks

This method makes the component disconnect from the MailServer by sending the QUIT command. If successful, all changes to the mailbox are committed by the server. Otherwise, changes are rolled back to the initial state that the server was in before the connection.

DoEvents Method (PPOP Component)

Processes events from the internal message queue.

Syntax

procedure DoEvents();

Remarks

When DoEvents is called, the component processes any available events. If no events are available, it waits for a preset period of time, and then returns.

Interrupt Method (PPOP Component)

Interrupt the current method.

Syntax

procedure Interrupt();

Remarks

If there is no method in progress, Interrupt simply returns, doing nothing.

ListMessageSizes Method (PPOP Component)

This method retrieves a list of all message sizes from the server.

Syntax

procedure ListMessageSizes();

Remarks

This message retrieves a list of all message sizes from the server. For each message listed, a MessageList event will fire containing the number and size of the message.

ListMessageUIDs Method (PPOP Component)

This method retrieves a list of all message UIDs from the server.

Syntax

procedure ListMessageUIDs();

Remarks

This method retrieves a list of all message UIDs from the server. For each message listed, a MessageList event will fire containing the number and UID of the message.

LocalizeDate Method (PPOP Component)

This method converts a valid RFC 822 message date to a local date and time.

Syntax

function LocalizeDate(DateTime: String): String;

Remarks

This method can be used to convert an RFC 822 date and time string to the corresponding local date and time.

Note: Dates will be returned in the format: "MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss".

Reset Method (PPOP Component)

This method resets all changes and revert back to the state when the user first connected.

Syntax

procedure Reset();

Remarks

This method is used to reset all changes and revert back to the state when the user first connected. Asks the MailServer to reset all changes and revert back to the state it was when connected.

Retrieve Method (PPOP Component)

This method retrieves a message specified by MessageNumber from the server.

Syntax

procedure Retrieve();

Remarks

This method is used to retrieve a message specified by MessageNumber from the server. It asks the MailServer to retrieve the message specified by MessageNumber. The message headers will arrive in the Header event, and the message text will arrive in the Transfer event.

The MaxLines property defines the number of lines retrieved.

Example. Connect and Retrieve Messages:

POPControl.MailServer = "MyPOPServer" POPControl.User = "username" POPControl.Password = "password" POPControl.Connect() POPControl.MessageNumber = 1 POPControl.Retrieve()

RetrieveHeaders Method (PPOP Component)

This method retrieves headers for a message specified by MessageNumber .

Syntax

procedure RetrieveHeaders();

Remarks

Calling this method will retrieve the headers for the message specified by the MessageNumber property. The message headers will be provided by the Header event and also stored in the MessageHeaders property.

Example. Connect and Retrieve Message Headers:

POPControl.MailServer = "MyPOPServer" POPControl.User = "username" POPControl.Password = "password" POPControl.Connect() POPControl.MessageNumber = 1 POPControl.RetrieveHeaders()

SetMessageStream Method (PPOP Component)

This method sets the stream to which the message downloaded from the server will be written.

Syntax

procedure SetMessageStream(MessageStream: TStream);

Remarks

This method sets the stream to which the message downloaded from the server will be written. If a download stream is set before the Retrieve method is called, the downloaded data will be written to the stream. The stream should be open and normally set to position 0. The component will automatically close this stream if CloseStreamAfterTransfer is set to True (default). If the stream is closed, you will need to call SetMessageStream again before calling Retrieve again. The downloaded content will be written starting at the current position in the stream.

Note: SetMessageStream and LocalFile will reset the other.

VerifySignature Method (PPOP Component)

Verifies the signature of the current message.

Syntax

procedure VerifySignature();

Remarks

This method verifies the signature of the message.

The message will be verified using the keys specified in the SignerKey* properties. Before verification begins the component will fire the SignatureInfo event with information about the signature including the key used to sign the message. Within this event you may use the information available to load the correct key into the SignerKey* properties.

By default, if the signature is not valid the component raises an exception. The configuration setting RequireValidSignature may be set to False to disable this requirement. When RequireValidSignature is set to False, the Status parameter of the VerificationStatus event should be checked to determine the result of the operation.

ConnectionStatus Event (PPOP Component)

This event is fired to indicate changes in the connection state.

Syntax

type TConnectionStatusEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const ConnectionEvent: String;
  StatusCode: Integer;
  const Description: String
) of Object;

property OnConnectionStatus: TConnectionStatusEvent read FOnConnectionStatus write FOnConnectionStatus;

Remarks

The ConnectionStatus event is fired when the connection state changes: for example, completion of a firewall or proxy connection or completion of a security handshake.

If the header line being retrieved is a continuation header line, then the Field parameter contains '' (empty string).

KeyPassphrase Event (PPOP Component)

Fired if the passphrase of current key is incorrect or empty.

Syntax

type TKeyPassphraseEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const UserId: String;
  const KeyId: String;
  var Passphrase: String
) of Object;

property OnKeyPassphrase: TKeyPassphraseEvent read FOnKeyPassphrase write FOnKeyPassphrase;

Remarks

) of Object;

property OnRecipientInfo: TRecipientInfoEvent read FOnRecipientInfo write FOnRecipientInfo;

Remarks

This event fires when the Decrypt or DecryptAndVerifySignature method is called.

KeyId is the Id of the key used to encrypt the message. If a subkey was used to encrypt the message this will be the Id of that subkey. It is the hex-encoded, 4- or 8-byte Id of the key. It is the same as the last 4 or 8 bytes of the fingerprint. For instance:

BF52A0AB
This can be used to identify the correct key to specify in Keys. Keys can be set from within this event as this event fires directly before the decryption process begins.

SignatureInfo Event (PPOP Component)

Fired during verification of the signed message.

Syntax

Remarks

This event fires when the VerifySignature or DecryptAndVerifySignature method is called. It provides information about the signature of the message.

KeyId is the Id of the key used to sign the message. If a subkey was used to sign the message this will be the Id of that subkey. It is the hex-encoded, 4- or 8-byte Id of the key. It is the same as the last 4 or 8 bytes of the Fingerprint. For instance:

BF52A0AB
This can be used to identify the correct key to specify in the SignerKey* properties. This property can be set from within this event as this event fires directly before the verification process begins.

SigningAlgorithm describes the hash algorithm used when the message was originally signed. This value is applicable only to the message signature, not the key used to sign the message. Possible values are:

  • SHA1
  • SHA256
  • SHA384
  • SHA512
  • SHA224
  • MD5

PublicKeyAlgorithm is the algorithm of the public key used to sign the message. Possible values are:

  const CertSubject: String;
  const CertIssuer: String;
  const Status: String;
  var Accept: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnSSLServerAuthentication: TSSLServerAuthenticationEvent read FOnSSLServerAuthentication write FOnSSLServerAuthentication;

Remarks

This event is where the client can decide whether to continue with the connection process or not. The Accept parameter is a recommendation on whether to continue or close the connection. This is just a suggestion: application software must use its own logic to determine whether to continue or not.

When Accept is False, Status shows why the verification failed (otherwise, Status contains the string "OK"). If it is decided to continue, you can override and accept the certificate by setting the Accept parameter to True.

SSLStatus Event (PPOP Component)

Shows the progress of the secure connection.

Syntax

type TSSLStatusEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Message: String
) of Object;

property OnSSLStatus: TSSLStatusEvent read FOnSSLStatus write FOnSSLStatus;

Remarks

The event is fired for informational and logging purposes only. Used to track the progress of the connection.

  Direction: Integer
) of Object;

property OnStartTransfer: TStartTransferEvent read FOnStartTransfer write FOnStartTransfer;

Remarks

The StartTransfer event is fired when the message body starts transferring from the server to the local host.

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

Status Event (PPOP Component)

Shows the progress of the operation.

Syntax

type TStatusEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  const Message: String
) of Object;

property OnStatus: TStatusEvent read FOnStatus write FOnStatus;

Remarks

The event is fired for informational and logging purposes only. It may be used to track the progress of an operation.

The level of detail is controlled by the LogLevel setting.

Transfer Event (PPOP Component)

This event is fired when the message is transferred from MailServer .

Syntax

type TTransferEvent = procedure (
  Sender: TObject;
  Direction: Integer;
  BytesTransferred: Int64;
  PercentDone: Integer;
  Text: String;
  TextB: TBytes;
  EOL: Boolean
) of Object;

property OnTransfer: TTransferEvent read FOnTransfer write FOnTransfer;

Remarks

The Text parameter contains the portion of the message data to be retrieved.

The BytesTransferred parameter contains the number of bytes transferred since the beginning of the message, including header bytes. At the end of transmission (i.e., when the last Transfer event is fired), BytesTransferred equals the value of the MessageSize property.

The Transfer event is fired for every line of the message. For complete lines, there is no terminating newline at the end of the Text parameter, and EOL is True. The EOL parameter is False when a line is broken (usually for being too long).

A faster way to retrieve a message is to assign a value to the LocalFile property and use the Transfer event to check the progress rather than to get the actual data.

The Direction parameter shows whether the client (0) or the server (1) is sending the data.

The PercentDone parameter shows the progress of the transfer in the corresponding direction. If PercentDone can not be calculated the value will be -1.

Note: Events are not re-entrant. Performing time-consuming operations within this event will prevent it from firing again in a timely manner and may affect overall performance.

Note: For the PercentDone parameter value to be correct, the GetMessageSize must be set to True.

VerificationStatus Event (PPOP Component)

Fired after verification of the signed message.

Syntax

type TVerificationStatusEvent = procedure (

  const KeyId: String;
  Status: Integer
) of Object;

property OnVerificationStatus: TVerificationStatusEvent read FOnVerificationStatus write FOnVerificationStatus;

Remarks

This event fires when VerifySignature or DecryptAndVerifySignature is called. It provides information about the result.

KeyId is the Id of the key used to sign the message. It is the hex-encoded, 4-or 8-byte Id of the key. It is the same as the last 4 or 8 bytes of the Fingerprint. For instance:

BF52A0AB

Status holds the result of the operation. Possible values are:

0Verification succeeded
1Verification failed
2The required key could not be found
3Verification succeeded but the key is expired.

5E70662EA810E768391A2FE8F7B7D49C89C9D7B1

Id
String

The hex-encoded, 4-byte key Id. It is same as last 4 bytes of Fingerprint.

This is in the form:

89C9D7B1
The KeyIdLength setting may be set to a value of 8 to return the last 8 bytes instead of the last 4 bytes.

Keyring
String

The location of the keyring.

If the keyring is stored in a directory, set this property to the directory. The directory must contain the files "secring.gpg" and "pubring.gpg". A keyring may also be stored in a single file. If the keyring is a file this property should be set to the path of the file.

When This property is set the component will read the keyring and populate the Key* properties with the first key found in the keyring. Set UserId to select a different key in the current keyring.

OtherUserIds
String

If the specified key has alternate user Ids associated with it, this property returns a comma-separated list of the other user Ids.

Passphrase
String

The passphrase for the key's secret key (if any). This must be specified before operations requiring the secret key are attempted. The passphrase may be supplied in this property or through the KeyPassphrase event, which will fire when a passphrase is required.

The passphrase is required when using the following methods in KeyMgr:

  • AddUserId
  • SignUserId
  • ChangeExpirationDate
  • ChangePassphrase

When using the OpenPGP component, or an email-based component, the following methods require a passphrase for the key:

  • Decrypt
  • Sign
  • SignAndEncrypt

PublicKey
String

The public key of the key. The key is provided as ASCII armored data.

PublicKeyAlgorithm
String

A text description of the public key algorithm of the key. Possible values are:

  • RSA
  • DSA
  • ECDSA
  • EdDSA
  • RSA-Legacy

PublicKeyLength
Integer

The length of the public key in bits. Common values are 512, 1024, and 2048.

If the PublicKeyAlgorithm property is ECDSA or EcDSA the length of the public key is determined by the Curve. Possible lenghts are:

CurvePublic Key Length (bits)
secp256r1256
secp384r1384
secp521r1521
Ed25519 256
secp256k1256

Revoked
Boolean

Whether or not the key is revoked.

SecretKey
String

The secret key of the key (if available). The key is provided as ASCII armored data.

SecretKeyAvailable
Boolean

Whether or not a secret key is available for the selected key.

Usage
String

A text description of UsageFlags.

The value will be of one or more of the following strings, separated by commas:

  • Certifying Other Certificates
  • Signing Emails and Files
  • Encrypting Emails and Files
  • Split Key
  • Authenticate Against Servers
  • Group Key

UsageFlags
Integer

Flags that show the intended use for the key. The default value is 0x0F. The value of UsageFlags is a combination of the following flags:

0x01This key may be used to certify other keys.
0x02This key may be used to sign data.
0x0CThis key may be used to encrypt communications and encrypt storage.
0x10The private component of this key may have been split by a secret-sharing mechanism.
0x20This key may be used for authentication.
0x80The private component of this key may be in the possession of more than one person.

Please refer to the Usage property for a text representation of UsageFlags.

UserId
String

The user Id of the key. When a key is loaded this property is populated with the user Id associated with the key. This property may be set to load a key from the Keyring. When this property is set the component will search the Keyring for a key associated with the UserId specified.

When loading a key with multiple user Ids, this property will be populated with the UserId that was most recently added to the key. To discover all of the UserIds associated with a key query this property and OtherUserIds after loading the key.

The UserId format is:

FirstName LastName (Comment) <Email>
Not all values are required when selecting or generating a key, but at least FirstName or Email are required.

When using this property to select a key you may also specify the key's Id, or any of its subkeys' Ids, instead of a user Id. The component will then search for a key with a matching Id. This is helpful in situations where you do not have the UserId but still need to load the key, such as within the OpenPGP component's RecipientInfo event.

MessageRecipient Type

This types describes the message recipient.

Remarks

This type describes who the message is sent to. It includes fields to denote the name and email address of the recipient of the message. The type of recipient must also be specified if the component is sending the message.

Fields

Address
String

This property contains the email address of the recipient.

Name
String

This property contains the name of the recipient.

Options
String

This property contains the recipient sending options (used only by SMTP). This must be a string of RFC-compliant recipient options (used by SMTP).

One type of option is a delivery status notification sent per recipient, which is specified by RFC 1891.

component.MessageRecipientOptions(0) = "NOTIFY SUCCESS,FAILURE,DELAY";

RecipientType
TipgEmailRecipientTypes

This property contains the recipient type: To, Cc, or Bcc.

Constructors

constructor Create();
constructor Create(valAddress: String);

Config Settings (PPOP Component)

The component 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 component, access to these internal properties is provided through the Config method.

PPOP Config Settings

Comment:   The OpenPGP message comment.

OpenPGP messages may contain a comment. This setting holds the comment (if any) after calling Decrypt, DecryptAndVerifySignature, or VerifySignature.

LogLevel:   Specifies the level of detail that is logged.

This setting controls the level of detail that is logged through the Status 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.

ProcessAttachments:   Whether or not to process attachments.

This setting controls whether attachments are processed when calling Decrypt, DecryptAndVerifySignature, or VerifySignature. When set to True if an attachment is a valid OpenPGP message it will be decrypted and/or verified. If it is not a valid OpenPGP message it will be left as is. When set to False the attachments are not processed. The default value is True.

RequireValidSignature:   Specifies if an invalid signature is considered an error condition.

By default, if the signature is not valid the component raises an exception. This setting may be set to False to disable this requirement. When False, the Status parameter of the VerificationStatus event should be checked to determine the result of the operation. The default value is True.

SymmetricPassphrase:   The password used for symmetric encryption or decryption.

This setting specifies the passphrase when using symmetric encryption. If a value is provided, symmetric encryption/decryption will be attempted. In this case no keys are used for either encryption or decryption. Only Encrypt and Decrypt are valid operations when a value is set. Sign, SignAndEncrypt, VerifySignature, and DecryptAndVerifySignature are not valid operations when using this option.

VersionHeader:   The Version header value in the ASCII armored OpenPGP message.

This setting specifies the Version header value included in the ASCII armored OpenPGP message. This may be set before calling Encrypt, Sign, or SignAndEncrypt. The default value is "IPWorks! OpenPGP 2016".

This setting will be populated after calling Decrypt, VerifySignature, or DecryptAndVerifySignature.

POP Config Settings

AuthorizationIdentity:   The value to use as the authorization identity when SASL authentication is used.

When AuthMechanism is set to amSASLPlain or amSASLDigestMD5, this configuration setting may specify an authorization identity to be used when authenticating.

AutoDecodeSubject:   Instructs the component to automatically decode message subjects.

Subjects that have been Quoted-Printable or Base64 encoded are automatically decoded when this configuration setting is True (default). Only subjects in the format "=?iso-8859-1?Q?data?=" will be correctly decoded.

GetMessageSize:   Whether to poll the server for the message size prior to retrieving it.

By default, this value is False. When set to True, the component will retrieve the message size from the server before downloading it and the PercentDone parameter of the Transfer event will be populated. When this value is False (default), the PercentDone parameter of the Transfer event will not be updated and will evaluate to -1.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum expected length for message lines.

Normally, internet mail message lines are up to 80 bytes long; however, different mail systems might use other values. Change the value of this property if you are expecting longer lines.

TCPClient Config Settings

CloseStreamAfterTransfer:   If true, the component will close the upload or download stream after the transfer.

This setting determines whether the input or output stream is closed after the transfer completes. When set to True (default), all streams will be closed after a transfer is completed. In order to keep streams open after the transfer of data, set this to False. the default value is True.

ConnectionTimeout:   Sets a separate timeout value for establishing a connection.

When set, this configuration setting allows you to specify a different timeout value for establishing a connection. Otherwise, the component will use Timeout for establishing a connection and transmitting/receiving data.

FirewallAutoDetect:   Tells the component whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallHost:   Name or IP address of firewall (optional).

If a FirewallHost is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the FirewallHost setting is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the FirewallHost setting is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPassword:   Password to be used if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall.

If FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, the component raises an exception.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPort:   The TCP port for the FirewallHost;.

The FirewallPort is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value.

Note: This configuration setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallType:   Determines the type of firewall to connect through.

The appropriate values are as follows:

0No firewall (default setting).
1Connect through a tunneling proxy. FirewallPort is set to 80.
2Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
3Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
10Connect through a SOCKS4A Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

If the FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the Firewall. If the authentication fails, the component raises an exception.

Note: This setting is provided for use by components that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

KeepAliveInterval:   The retry interval, in milliseconds, to be used when a TCP keep-alive packet is sent and no response is received.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgment is received from the remote host, the keep-alive packet will be sent again. This configuration setting specifies the interval at which the successive keep-alive packets are sent in milliseconds. This system default if this value is not specified here is 1 second.

Note: This value is not applicable in macOS.

KeepAliveTime:   The inactivity time in milliseconds before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. By default, the operating system will determine the time a connection is idle before a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) keep-alive packet is sent. This system default if this value is not specified here is 2 hours. In many cases, a shorter interval is more useful. Set this value to the desired interval in milliseconds.

Linger:   When set to True, connections are terminated gracefully.

This property controls how a connection is closed. The default is True.

In the case that Linger is True (default), two scenarios determine how long the connection will linger. In the first, if LingerTime is 0 (default), the system will attempt to send pending data for a connection until the default IP timeout expires.

In the second scenario, if LingerTime is a positive value, the system will attempt to send pending data until the specified LingerTime is reached. If this attempt fails, then the system will reset the connection.

The default behavior (which is also the default mode for stream sockets) might result in a long delay in closing the connection. Although the component returns control immediately, the system could hold system resources until all pending data are sent (even after your application closes).

Setting this property to False forces an immediate disconnection. If you know that the other side has received all the data you sent (e.g., by a client acknowledgment), setting this property to False might be the appropriate course of action.

LingerTime:   Time in seconds to have the connection linger.

LingerTime is the time, in seconds, the socket connection will linger. This value is 0 by default, which means it will use the default IP timeout.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The LocalHost setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the component initiate connections (or accept in the case of server components) only through that interface.

If the component is connected, the LocalHost setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the component binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the component to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by LocalPort after the connection is established.

LocalPort cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum amount of data to accumulate when no EOL is found.

MaxLineLength is the size of an internal buffer, which holds received data while waiting for an EOL string.

If an EOL string is found in the input stream before MaxLineLength bytes are received, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to True, and the buffer is reset.

If no EOL is found, and MaxLineLength bytes are accumulated in the buffer, the DataIn event is fired with the EOL parameter set to False, and the buffer is reset.

The minimum value for MaxLineLength is 256 bytes. The default value is 2048 bytes.

MaxTransferRate:   The transfer rate limit in bytes per second.

This configuration setting can be used to throttle outbound TCP traffic. Set this to the number of bytes to be sent per second. By default, this is not set and there is no limit.

ProxyExceptionsList:   A semicolon separated list of hosts and IPs to bypass when using a proxy.

This configuration setting optionally specifies a semicolon-separated list of hostnames or IP addresses to bypass when a proxy is in use. When requests are made to hosts specified in this property, the proxy will not be used. For instance:

www.google.com;www.nsoftware.com

TCPKeepAlive:   Determines whether or not the keep alive socket option is enabled.

If set to True, the socket's keep-alive option is enabled and keep-alive packets will be sent periodically to maintain the connection. Set KeepAliveTime and KeepAliveInterval to configure the timing of the keep-alive packets.

Note: This value is not applicable in Java.

TcpNoDelay:   Whether or not to delay when sending packets.

When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals. This is known as the Nagle algorithm.

By default, this config is set to false.

UseIPv6:   Whether to use IPv6.

When set to 0 (default), the component will use IPv4 exclusively. When set to 1, the component will use IPv6 exclusively. To instruct the component to prefer IPv6 addresses, but use IPv4 if IPv6 is not supported on the system, this setting should be set to 2. The default value is 0. Possible values are:

0 IPv4 Only
1 IPv6 Only
2 IPv6 with IPv4 fallback

SSL Config Settings

LogSSLPackets:   Controls whether SSL packets are logged when using the internal security API.

When SSLProvider is set to Internal, this setting controls whether SSL packets should be logged. By default, this setting is False, as it is only useful for debugging purposes.

When enabled, SSL packet logs are output using the SSLStatus event, which will fire each time an SSL packet is sent or received.

Enabling this setting has no effect if SSLProvider is set to Platform.

OpenSSLCADir:   The path to a directory containing CA certificates.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The path set by this property should point to a directory containing CA certificates in PEM format. The files each contain one CA certificate. The files are looked up by the CA subject name hash value, which must hence be available. If more than one CA certificate with the same name hash value exist, the extension must be different (e.g. 9d66eef0.0, 9d66eef0.1 etc). OpenSSL recommends to use the c_rehash utility to create the necessary links. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCAFile:   Name of the file containing the list of CA's trusted by your application.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The file set by this property should contain a list of CA certificates in PEM format. The file can contain several CA certificates identified by

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

... (CA certificate in base64 encoding) ...

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

sequences. Before, between, and after the certificates text is allowed which can be used e.g. for descriptions of the certificates. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCipherList:   A string that controls the ciphers to be used by SSL.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The format of this string is described in the OpenSSL man page ciphers(1) section "CIPHER LIST FORMAT". Please refer to it for details. The default string "DEFAULT" is determined at compile time and is normally equivalent to "ALL:!ADH:RC4+RSA:+SSLv2:@STRENGTH".

OpenSSLPrngSeedData:   The data to seed the pseudo random number generator (PRNG).

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

By default OpenSSL uses the device file "/dev/urandom" to seed the PRNG and setting OpenSSLPrngSeedData is not required. If set, the string specified is used to seed the PRNG.

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the component will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the component is the same.

SSLCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL client authentication.

This setting specifies one or more CA certificates to be included in the request when performing SSL client authentication. Some servers require the entire chain, including CA certificates, to be presented when performing SSL client authentication. The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw
...
eWHV5OW1K53o/atv59sOiW5K3crjFhsBOd5Q+cJJnU+SWinPKtANXMht+EDvYY2w
F0I1XhM+pKj7FjDr+XNj
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
\r \n
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEFjCCAv6gAwIBAgIQetu1SMxpnENAnnOz1P+PtTANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQUFADBp
..
d8q23djXZbVYiIfE9ebr4g3152BlVCHZ2GyPdjhIuLeH21VbT/dyEHHA
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLCheckCRL:   Whether to check the Certificate Revocation List for the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the component will check the Certificate Revocation List specified by the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the component will first obtain the list of CRL URLs from the server certificate's CRL distribution points extension. The component will then make HTTP requests to each CRL endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the component raises an exception.

When set to 0 (default) the CRL check will not be performed by the component. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the CRL check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support CRL. When set to 2, it will perform the CRL check and will throw an error if CRL is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCipherStrength:   The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.

This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported, an error will be returned when connections are initiated.

Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library. The actual cipher strength used for the connection is shown by the SSLStatus event.

Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList config setting.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.

The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.

By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").

The special value "*" means that the component will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.

Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.

Example values when SSLProvider is set to Platform: obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=*"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256;CALG_3DES"); Possible values when SSLProvider is set to Platform include:

  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000)

SSLEnabledProtocols - TLS 1.3 Notes

By default when TLS 1.3 is enabled the component will use the internal TLS implementation.

In editions which are designed to run on Windows SSLProvider can be set to Platform to use the platform implementation instead of the internal implementation. When configured in this manner, please note that the platform provider is only supported on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up. The default internal provider is available on all platforms and is not restricted to any specific OS version.

If set to 1 (Platform provider) please be aware of the following notes:

  • The platform provider is only available on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up.
  • SSLEnabledCipherSuites and other similar SSL configuration settings are not supported.
  • If SSLEnabledProtocols includes both TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.2 the above restrictions are still applicable even if TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Enabling TLS 1.3 with the platform provider changes the implementation used for all TLS versions.

SSLEnableRenegotiation:   Whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension is supported.

This setting specifies whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension will be used in the request when using the internal security API. This setting is True by default, but can be set to False to disable the extension.

This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.

This setting specifies whether the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event.

If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the Encoded parameter of the SSLServerAuthentication event. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.

SSLKeyLogFile:   The location of a file where per-session secrets are written for debugging purposes.

This setting optionally specifies the full path to a file on disk where per-session secrets are stored for debugging purposes.

When set, the component will save the session secrets in the same format as the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable functionality used by most major browsers and tools such as Chrome, Firefox, and cURL. This file can then be used in tools such as Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffice for debugging purposes. When writing to this file the component will only append, it will not overwrite previous values.

Note: This setting is only applicable when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

SSLNegotiatedCipher:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipher[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite strength.

Returns the strength of the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g.TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite:   Returns the negotiated ciphersuite.

Returns the ciphersuite negotiated during the SSL handshake represented as a single string.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm.

Returns the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm strength.

Returns the strenghth of the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedVersion:   Returns the negotiated protocol version.

Returns the protocol version negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedVersion[connId]");

SSLSecurityFlags:   Flags that control certificate verification.

The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple conditions:

0x00000001Ignore time validity status of certificate.
0x00000002Ignore time validity status of CTL.
0x00000004Ignore non-nested certificate times.
0x00000010Allow unknown Certificate Authority.
0x00000020Ignore wrong certificate usage.
0x00000100Ignore unknown certificate revocation status.
0x00000200Ignore unknown CTL signer revocation status.
0x00000400Ignore unknown Certificate Authority revocation status.
0x00000800Ignore unknown Root revocation status.
0x00008000Allow test Root certificate.
0x00004000Trust test Root certificate.
0x80000000Ignore non-matching CN (certificate CN not-matching server name).

This functionality is currently not available when the provider is OpenSSL.

SSLServerCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL server certificate validation.

This setting optionally specifies one or more CA certificates to be used when verifying the server certificate. When verifying the server's certificate the certificates trusted by the system will be used as part of the verification process. If the server's CA certificates are not installed to the trusted system store, they may be specified here so they are included when performing the verification process. This setting should only be set if the server's CA certificates are not already trusted on the system and cannot be installed to the trusted system store.

The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

..
d8q23djXZbVYiIfE9ebr4g3152BlVCHZ2GyPdjhIuLeH21VbT/dyEHHA
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.

When specified the component will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the component raises an exception.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: TCPClient.SSLProvider = TCPClientSSLProviders.sslpInternal; TCPClient.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 TCPClient.Config("TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa"); The default value for this setting is sha512-ecdsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa,sha384-ecdsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha256-ecdsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha224-ecdsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha1-ecdsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa.

In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for ECC.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.

The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.

When using TLS 1.2 and SSLProvider is set to Internal, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection. This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.

The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.

Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.

In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "ed25519" (default)
  • "ed448" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pss_sha256,rsa_pss_sha384,rsa_pss_sha512,rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512,ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256,ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384,ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512,ed25519,ed448. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096" (default)
  • "ffdhe_6144" (default)
  • "ffdhe_8192" (default)

Socket Config Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the component is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

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).

LicenseInfo:   Information about the current license.

When queried, this setting will return a string containing information about the license this instance of a component is using. It will return the following information:

  • Product: The product the license is for.
  • Product Key: The key the license was generated from.
  • License Source: Where the license was found (e.g., RuntimeLicense, License File).
  • License Type: The type of license installed (e.g., Royalty Free, Single Server).
  • Last Valid Build: The last valid build number for which the license will work.
UseInternalSecurityAPI:   Tells the component whether or not to use the system security libraries or an internal implementation.

By default the component will use the system security libraries to perform cryptographic functions where applicable. Setting this to True tells the component to use the internal implementation instead of using the system's security API.
