CryptoKeyManager Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The CryptoKeyManager component provides a simple way to load, generate and manage generic crypto keys.

Syntax

nsoftware.SecureBlackbox.Cryptokeymanager

Remarks

CryptoKeyManager allows you to load, save, generate, import, and export low-level crypto keys. One example of such keys are raw RSA keys stored in PKCS1 format or AES256 keys. CryptoKeyManager supports asymmetric, symmetric, and HMAC keys.

CryptoKeyManager is a typical companion for low-level cryptography classes, such as PublicKeyCrypto, SymmetricCrypto, and HashFunction. It can also be used to provide external key material to certificate objects, and to derive cryptographic keys from passwords.

Use ImportBytes or ImportFromFile method to load the key material from a buffer or file. Use ImportFromCert (and remember to assign the certificate object to the Certificate property before calling it) to import a key from an X.509 certificate. Once loaded, the key will be available in the Key property.

To generate a new key or keypair use Generate method. You can export the generated key using ExportBytes or ExportToFile method. You can attach the generated or loaded key to an external certificate object using the ExportToCert method.

Note: CryptoKeyManager can only work with one cryptographic key at a time. Use CryptoKeyStorage to access media containing more than one key.

Bits
Integer

The length of the key in bits.

Curve
String

This property specifies the name of the curve the EC key is built on.

Exportable
Boolean

Returns True if the key is exportable (can be serialized into an array of bytes), and False otherwise.

ID
Byte()

Provides access to a storage-specific key identifier. Key identifiers are used by cryptographic providers to refer to a particular key and/or distinguish between different keys. They are typically unique within a storage, but there is no guarantee that a particular cryptoprovider will conform to that (or will assign any key IDs at all).

IV
Byte()

The initialization vector (IV) of a symmetric key. This is normally a public part of a symmetric key, the idea of which is to introduce randomness to the encrypted data and/or serve as a first block in chaining ciphers.

Key
Byte()

The byte array representation of the key. This may not be available for non-Exportable keys.

Nonce
Byte()

A nonce value associated with a key. It is similar to IV, but its only purpose is to introduce randomness.

Private
Boolean

Returns True if the object hosts a private key, and False otherwise.

Public
Boolean

Returns True if the object hosts a public key, and False otherwise.

Subject
Byte()

Returns the key subject. This is a cryptoprovider-dependent value, which normally aims to provide some user-friendly insight into the key owner.

Symmetric
Boolean

Returns True if the object contains a symmetric key, and False otherwise.

Valid
Boolean

Returns True if this key is valid. The term Valid highly depends on the kind of the key being stored. A symmetric key is considered valid if its length fits the algorithm being set. The validity of an RSA key also ensures that the RSA key elements (primes, exponents, and modulus) are consistent.

Constructors

public CryptoKey();
Public CryptoKey()

Creates an empty crypto key object.

Configuration Settings (CryptoKeyManager 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.

noneNo flush (caching only)
immediateImmediate flush (real-time logging)
maxcountFlush cached entries upon reaching LogMaxEventCount entries in the cache.

LogLevel:   Specifies the debug log level.

Use this property to provide the desired debug log level.

Supported values are:

noneNone (by default)
fatalSevere errors that cause premature termination.
errorOther runtime errors or unexpected conditions.
warningUse of deprecated APIs, poor use of API, 'almost' errors, other runtime situations that are undesirable or unexpected, but not necessarily "wrong".
infoInteresting runtime events (startup/shutdown).
debugDetailed information on flow of through the system.
traceMore detailed information.

LogMaxEventCount:   Specifies the maximum number of events to cache before further action is taken.

Use this property to set the log rotation mode. The following values are defined:

noneNo rotation
deleteolderDelete older entries from the cache upon reaching LogMaxEventCount
keepolderKeep older entries in the cache upon reaching LogMaxEventCount (newer entries are discarded)

MaxASN1BufferLength:   Specifies the maximal allowed length for ASN.1 primitive tag data.

This global property limits the maximal allowed length for ASN.1 tag data for non-content-carrying structures, such as certificates, CRLs, or timestamps. It does not affect structures that can carry content, such as CMS/CAdES messages. This is a security property aiming at preventing DoS attacks.

MaxASN1TreeDepth:   Specifies the maximal depth for processed ASN.1 trees.

This global property limits the maximal depth of ASN.1 trees that the component can handle without throwing an error. This is a security property aiming at preventing DoS attacks.

OCSPHashAlgorithm:   Specifies the hash algorithm to be used to identify certificates in OCSP requests.

This global setting defines the hash algorithm to use in OCSP requests during chain validation. Some OCSP responders can only use older algorithms, in which case setting this property to SHA1 may be helpful.

Tag:   Allows to store any custom data.

Use this config property to store any custom data.

UseSharedSystemStorages:   Specifies whether the validation engine should use a global per-process copy of the system certificate stores.

Set this global property to false to make each validation run use its own copy of system certificate stores.

UseSystemOAEPAndPSS:   Enforces or disables the use of system-driven RSA OAEP and PSS computations.

This global setting defines who is responsible for performing RSA-OAEP and RSA-PSS computations where the private key is stored in a Windows system store and is exportable. If set to true, SBB will delegate the computations to Windows via a CryptoAPI call. Otherwise, it will export the key material and perform the computations using its own OAEP/PSS implementation.

This setting only applies to certificates originating from a Windows system store.

UseSystemRandom:   Enables or disables the use of the OS PRNG.

Use this global property to enable or disable the use of operating system-driven pseudorandom number generation.
