HTTPClient Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

The HTTPClient component implements client-side functionality of HTTP and HTTPS protocols.

Syntax

nsoftware.SecureBlackbox.Httpclient

Remarks

HTTPClient provides means of exchanging HTTP messages with HTTP servers. Both plain (HTTP) and secure (HTTPS) connection types are supported.

Features supported

  • All standard request types (GET, POST, PUT etc.), plus custom VERBs
  • TLS 1.2 and 1.3 (and earlier versions for older servers)
  • Strong client and server authentication on TLS and HTTP levels
  • Flexible custom header adjustment
  • A variety of proxy server types

Configuring the component

HTTPClient is very easy to configure. In some cases, like in the example given below, you do not need any special tuneups whatsoever: client.Get("http://www.mywebserver.com/"); if (client.StatusCode == 200) { string response = client.OutputString; } You may need to adjust the component settings if you plan to connect to endpoints secured with TLS. By default, HTTPClient relies on the system settings when validating server certificates. If you would prefer to ignore the system trust and implement customized chain validation procedures - such as certificate pinning - in your code instead, set TLSSettings.AutoValidateCertificates to false, and subscribe to CertificateValidate event. This event will fire whenever a server certificate validation needs to be performed.

Use ClientChain collection to provide your certificates for client authentication. Make sure the provided certificate contains a private key; otherwise it will be unable to authenticate.

To provide custom HTTP headers, subscribe to HeadersPrepared event. HTTPClient fires this event right before sending the request out to the server, giving you an opportunity to alter the headers or add your own. The list of headers can be accessed via the RequestHeaders collection. Note: the headers can only be modified from the HeadersPrepared event handler. Setting them earlier or later in your code won't provide the expected effect.

Having set up the component, use the appropriate variant of the request method (such as: Get, GetBytes, or GetFile) to obtain the response in the desired format (string, memory buffer, or file).

An example of a scenario where you might want to do that is when root CA certificates are absent from the standard system locations (or when there are no standard system locations), and therefore should be supplied to the component manually.

The purpose of this certificate collection is largely the same than that of Windows Trusted Root Certification Authorities system store.

Use this property with extreme care as it directly affects chain verifiability; a wrong certificate added to the trusted list may result in bad chains being accepted, and forfeited signatures being recognized as genuine. Only add certificates that originate from the parties that you know and trust.

This property is not available at design time.

UseDigestAuth Property (HTTPClient Component)

Enables or disables the HTTP Digest authentication.

Syntax

public bool UseDigestAuth { get; set; }
Public Property UseDigestAuth As Boolean

Remarks

NT LAN Manager (NTLM) authentication relies on Windows credentials to authenticate the user, and requires multiple exchanges between the client and server. Generally it is considered more secure and SSO-friendly than the Digest authentication.

Config Method (HTTPClient Component)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

public string Config(string configurationString);
Public Function Config(ByVal ConfigurationString As String) As 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.

Delete Method (HTTPClient Component)

Sends a DELETE request to the server.

Syntax

public void Delete(string url);
Public Sub Delete(ByVal Url As String)

Remarks

Use this method to send a DELETE request to server. In response to this request, the server may (without any guarantees) delete the resource specified in Url. Most of the servers disable DELETE requests.

If this request fails, an exception will be thrown, and the error details published in StatusCode and ReasonPhrase properties.

Note that any parameters you intend to pass to this method should be properly encoded before this method is called.

DoAction Method (HTTPClient Component)

Performs an additional action.

Syntax

public string DoAction(string actionID, string actionParams);
Public Function DoAction(ByVal ActionID As String, ByVal ActionParams As String) As String

Remarks

DoAction is a generic method available in every component. It is used to perform an additional action introduced after the product major release. The list of actions is not fixed, and may be flexibly extended over time.

The unique identifier of the action is provided in ActionID parameter. ActionParams contains a list of parameters for the action in the form of PARAM1=VALUE1;PARAM2=VALUE2;....

Get Method (HTTPClient Component)

Sends a GET request to the server.

Syntax

public void Get(string url);
Public Sub Get(ByVal Url As String)

Remarks

GET is one of the most widely used HTTP requests. The server responds with the content of the resource specified in Url.

If the request is successful, the received content will be available in OutputBytes and OutputString properties. Otherwise an exception will be thrown, and the error details published in StatusCode and ReasonPhrase properties.

Note that any parameters you intend to pass to this method should be properly encoded before this method is called.

GetFile Method (HTTPClient Component)

Sends a GET request to the server and saves the output to a file.

Syntax

public void GetFile(string url, string filename);
Public Sub GetFile(ByVal Url As String, ByVal Filename As String)

Remarks

GET is one of the most widely used HTTP requests. The server responds with the content of the resource specified in Url.

If the request is successful, the received content will be saved to Filename. Otherwise, an exception will be thrown, and the error details published in StatusCode and ReasonPhrase properties.

Sends a GET request to the server and saves the output in a stream.

Syntax

public void GetStream(string url, System.IO.Stream outputStream);
Public Sub GetStream(ByVal Url As String, ByVal OutputStream As System.IO.Stream)

Remarks

GET is one of the most widely used HTTP requests. The server responds with the content of the resource specified in Url.

If the request is successful, the method saves the received content to OutputStream. Otherwise, an exception will be thrown, and the error details published in StatusCode and ReasonPhrase properties.

Note that any parameters you intend to pass to this method should be properly encoded before this method is called.

Head Method (HTTPClient Component)

Sends a HEAD request to the server.

Syntax

public void Head(string url);
Public Sub Head(ByVal Url As String)

Remarks

HEAD is very similar to GET, with the only difference being that only the headers (but not the content) is returned.

HEAD is often use to retrieve the parameters of the resource, such as its size and modification date. If the request is successful, those details will be available via ResponseParameters and ResponseHeaders properties. Otherwise, an exception will be thrown, and the error details published in StatusCode and ReasonPhrase properties.

CertificateValidate Event (HTTPClient Component)

Fires when the server's TLS certificate has to be validated.

Syntax

public event OnCertificateValidateHandler OnCertificateValidate;

public delegate void OnCertificateValidateHandler(object sender, HttpclientCertificateValidateEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientCertificateValidateEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string Address { get; }

  public bool Accept { get; set; }

}
Public Event OnCertificateValidate As OnCertificateValidateHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnCertificateValidateHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientCertificateValidateEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientCertificateValidateEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property Address As String

  Public Property Accept As Boolean

End Class

Remarks

The component fires this event upon receiving the server's certificate during TLS handshake. The subscriber to this event has to validate the certificate and return its status back to the component using the Accept parameter.

The Address parameter indicates the address of the server the connection is being established to.

This event is fired independently of the AutoValidateCertificates setting. If this setting is false, the event handler (and your code) is responsible for validating the certificate chain and returning the result back to the component through the Accept parameter. Note that setting AutoValidateCertificates to false and not performing any validation inside the handler of this event creates a serious security vulnerability, which can lead to grave consequences.

The exact validation method to use depends on your circumstances, and may range from comparing the certificate to its legit and trusted copy (sometimes called certificate pinning), to fully-fledged chain validation. CertificateValidator component is one of the options to build your chain validation on.

If AutoValidateCertificates is true, the chain has already been validated internally by the component by the time this event fires, and the value of Accept reflects the outcome of that check. You can perform your own, additional validation even when using AutoValidateCertificates mode, and adjust Accept if needed.

Cookie Event (HTTPClient Component)

Fired to report a received cookie.

Syntax

Remarks

The CookieText parameter contains the text of the cookie.

DocumentEnd Event (HTTPClient Component)

Marks the successful receipt of the incoming HTML document or file.

Syntax

public event OnDocumentEndHandler OnDocumentEnd;

public delegate void OnDocumentEndHandler(object sender, HttpclientDocumentEndEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientDocumentEndEventArgs : EventArgs {
}
Public Event OnDocumentEnd As OnDocumentEndHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnDocumentEndHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientDocumentEndEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientDocumentEndEventArgs Inherits EventArgs

DynamicDataNeeded Event (HTTPClient Component)

Requests a portion of data to be uploaded from the application.

Syntax

public event OnDynamicDataNeededHandler OnDynamicDataNeeded;

public delegate void OnDynamicDataNeededHandler(object sender, HttpclientDynamicDataNeededEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientDynamicDataNeededEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public int BytesNeeded { get; }

}
Public Event OnDynamicDataNeeded As OnDynamicDataNeededHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnDynamicDataNeededHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientDynamicDataNeededEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientDynamicDataNeededEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property BytesNeeded As Integer

End Class

Remarks

If dynamic ('streaming') variants of PUT or POST methods are used, this event is fired periodically to request portions of data to be sent to the server.

When handling this event, assign the next portion of data of BytesNeeded length (or less) to DynamicData. If no more data is available to upload (the whole document has been sent), leave DynamicData empty.

Error Event (HTTPClient Component)

Information about errors during data delivery.

Syntax

public event OnErrorHandler OnError;

public delegate void OnErrorHandler(object sender, HttpclientErrorEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientErrorEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public int ErrorCode { get; }

  public string Description { get; }

}
Public Event OnError As OnErrorHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnErrorHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientErrorEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientErrorEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property ErrorCode As Integer

  Public ReadOnly Property Description As String

End Class

Remarks

The event is fired in case of exceptional conditions during message processing.

ErrorCode contains an error code and Description contains a textual description of the error. For a list of valid error codes and their descriptions, please refer to the HTTPS section.

ExternalSign Event (HTTPClient Component)

Handles remote or external signing initiated by the SignExternal method or other source.

Syntax

public event OnExternalSignHandler OnExternalSign;

public delegate void OnExternalSignHandler(object sender, HttpclientExternalSignEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientExternalSignEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string OperationId { get; }

  public string HashAlgorithm { get; }

  public string Pars { get; }

  public string Data { get; }

  public string SignedData { get; set; }

}
Public Event OnExternalSign As OnExternalSignHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnExternalSignHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientExternalSignEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientExternalSignEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property OperationId As String

  Public ReadOnly Property HashAlgorithm As String

  Public ReadOnly Property Pars As String

  Public ReadOnly Property Data As String

  Public Property SignedData As String

End Class

Remarks

Assign a handler to this event if you need to delegate a low-level signing operation to an external, remote, or custom signing engine. Depending on the settings, the handler will receive a hashed or unhashed value to be signed.

The event handler must pass the value of Data to the signer, obtain the signature, and pass it back to the component via SignedData parameter.

OperationId provides a comment about the operation and its origin. It depends on the exact component being used, and may be empty. HashAlgorithm specifies the hash algorithm being used for the operation, and Pars contain algorithm-dependent parameters.

The component uses base16 (hex) encoding for Data, SignedData, and Pars parameters. If your signing engine uses a different input and output encoding, you may need to decode and/or encode the data before and/or after the signing.

A sample MD5 hash encoded in base16: a0dee2a0382afbb09120ffa7ccd8a152 - lower case base16 A0DEE2A0382AFBB09120FFA7CCD8A152 - upper case base16

A sample event handler that uses a .NET RSACryptoServiceProvider class may look like the following: signer.OnExternalSign += (s, e) => { var cert = new X509Certificate2("cert.pfx", "", X509KeyStorageFlags.Exportable); var key = (RSACryptoServiceProvider)cert.PrivateKey; var dataToSign = e.Data.FromBase16String(); var signedData = key.SignHash(dataToSign, "2.16.840.1.101.3.4.2.1"); e.SignedData = signedData.ToBase16String(); };

HeadersPrepared Event (HTTPClient Component)

Fires when the request headers have been formed and are about to be sent to the server.

Syntax

Public Event OnHeadersPrepared As OnHeadersPreparedHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnHeadersPreparedHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientHeadersPreparedEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientHeadersPreparedEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
End Class

Remarks

The prepared headers are available in RequestHeaders property. This event provides you the last chance to review/alter them.

HeadersReceived Event (HTTPClient Component)

Fires when the HTTP response headers have just been received from the server.

Syntax

Public Event OnHeadersReceived As OnHeadersReceivedHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnHeadersReceivedHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientHeadersReceivedEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientHeadersReceivedEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
End Class

Remarks

The received headers are available via the ResponseHeaders property.

Notification Event (HTTPClient Component)

This event notifies the application about an underlying control flow event.

Syntax

public event OnNotificationHandler OnNotification;

public delegate void OnNotificationHandler(object sender, HttpclientNotificationEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientNotificationEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string EventID { get; }

  public string EventParam { get; }

}
Public Event OnNotification As OnNotificationHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnNotificationHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientNotificationEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientNotificationEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property EventID As String

  Public ReadOnly Property EventParam As String

End Class

Remarks

The component fires this event to let the application know about some event, occurrence, or milestone in the component. For example, it may fire to report completion of the document processing. The list of events being reported is not fixed, and may be flexibly extended over time.

The unique identifier of the event is provided in EventID parameter. EventParam contains any parameters accompanying the occurrence. Depending on the type of the component, the exact action it is performing, or the document being processed, one or both may be omitted.

Progress Event (HTTPClient Component)

Fires periodically during the data transfer.

Syntax

public event OnProgressHandler OnProgress;

public delegate void OnProgressHandler(object sender, HttpclientProgressEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientProgressEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public long Total { get; }

  public long Current { get; }

  public bool Cancel { get; set; }

}
Public Event OnProgress As OnProgressHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnProgressHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientProgressEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientProgressEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property Total As Long

  Public ReadOnly Property Current As Long

  Public Property Cancel As Boolean

End Class

Remarks

Use this event to check the progress of an upload or download operation. Total indicates the total number of bytes to be transferred; Current specifies how much data has been transferred so far, and Cancel gives you a chance to cancel the operation.

Redirection Event (HTTPClient Component)

Fires when the server suggests a redirect.

Syntax

public event OnRedirectionHandler OnRedirection;

public delegate void OnRedirectionHandler(object sender, HttpclientRedirectionEventArgs e);

public class HttpclientRedirectionEventArgs : EventArgs {
  public string OldURL { get; }

  public string NewURL { get; set; }

  public bool AllowRedirection { get; set; }

}
Public Event OnRedirection As OnRedirectionHandler

Public Delegate Sub OnRedirectionHandler(sender As Object, e As HttpclientRedirectionEventArgs)

Public Class HttpclientRedirectionEventArgs Inherits EventArgs
  Public ReadOnly Property OldURL As String

  Public Property NewURL As String

  Public Property AllowRedirection As Boolean

End Class

Remarks

This event is fired when the server suggests a redirection request (typically via a 301 or 302 response). OldURL indicates the 'from' page, and NewURL indicates the 'to' one. The destination page can be altered by the application if needed. Use AllowRedirection to block undesirable redirects.

Generally, this is a notification event: the component handles redirections automatically. Use the MaxRedirections config property to limit the number of redirection hops.

KeyID
String

The ID of the pre-shared key used for DC request authentication.

Asynchronous DCAuth-driven communication requires that parties authenticate each other with a secret pre-shared cryptographic key. This provides extra protection layer for the protocol and diminishes the risk of private key becoming abused by foreign parties. Use this property to provide the pre-shared key identifier, and use KeySecret to pass the key itself.

The same KeyID/KeySecret pair should be used on the DCAuth side for the signing requests to be accepted.

Note: The KeyID/KeySecret scheme is very similar to the AuthKey scheme used in various Cloud service providers to authenticate users.

Example: signer.ExternalCrypto.KeyID = "MainSigningKey"; signer.ExternalCrypto.KeySecret = "abcdef0123456789";

KeySecret
String

The pre-shared key used for DC request authentication. This key must be set and match the key used by the DCAuth counterpart for the scheme to work.

crapmCompatible0TLS 1.0 and 1.1 compatibility mode (renegotiation indication extension is disabled).
crapmStrict1Renegotiation attack prevention is enabled and enforced.
crapmAuto2Automatically choose whether to enable or disable renegotiation attack prevention.

RevocationCheck
RevocationCheckKinds

Specifies the kind(s) of revocation check to perform.

Revocation checking is necessary to ensure the integrity of the chain and obtain up-to-date certificate validity and trustworthiness information.

crcNone (0)No revocation checking
crcAuto (1)Automatic mode selection. Currently this maps to crcAnyOCSPOrCRL, but it may change in the future.
crcAllCRL (2)Check all provided CRL endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllOCSP (3)Check all provided OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllCRLAndOCSP (4)Check all CRL and OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAnyCRL (5)At least one CRL check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyOCSP (6)At least one OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyCRLOrOCSP (7)At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. CRL endpoints are checked first.
crcAnyOCSPOrCRL (8)At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. OCSP endpoints are checked first.

This setting controls the way the revocation checks are performed. Typically certificates come with two types of revocation information sources: CRL (certificate revocation lists) and OCSP responders. CRLs are static objects periodically published by the CA at some online location. OCSP responders are active online services maintained by the CA that can provide up-to-date information on certificate statuses in near real time.

There are some conceptual differences between the two. CRLs are normally larger in size. Their use involves some latency because there is normally some delay between the time when a certificate was revoked and the time the subsequent CRL mentioning that is published. The benefits of CRL is that the same object can provide statuses for all certificates issued by a particular CA, and that the whole technology is much simpler than OCSP (and thus is supported by more CAs).

This setting lets you adjust the validation course by including or excluding certain types of revocation sources from the validation process. The crcAnyOCSPOrCRL setting (give preference to faster OCSP route and only demand one source to succeed) is a good choice for most of typical validation environments. The "crcAll*" modes are much stricter, and may be used in scenarios where bulletproof validity information is essential.

Configuration Settings (HTTPClient 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.

HTTPClient Configuration Settings

CacheStreamOutput:   Tells the component whether to cache stream- and file-bound responses in the component.

Set this property to true to enable caching of potentially long responses obtained with GetFile and GetStream methods. If the response is cached, it will be available via OutputBytes and OutputString properties after the request is completed, but may occupy extra memory resources.

ForceNTLMAuth:   Activates and enforces NTLM authentication.

Set this property to True to force NTLM (Windows Integrated) authentication.

IgnoreSystemTrust:   Whether trusted Windows Certificate Stores should be treated as trusted.

Specifies whether, during chain validation, the component should respect the trust to CA certificates as configured in the operating system. In Windows this effectively defines whether the component should trust the certificates residing in the Trusted Root Certification Authorities store.

If IgnoreSystemTrust is True, certificates residing in the trusted root store are treated as if they are known, rather than trusted. Only certificates provided via other means (such as TrustedCertificates property) are considered trusted.

IgnoreUnknownTransferEncodings:   All incoming responses with unknown transfer encodings are ignored if this property is true.

All incoming responses with unknown transfer encodings are ignored if this property is true.

MaxRedirections:   The maximum number of HTTP redirects.

Specifies the maximum number of HTTP redirects. Value 0 prevents any redirections, and -1 allows unlimited redirections.

PersistentAuthHeader:   Whether to resend NTLM negotiation on every request.

Specifies whether to resend NTLM negotiation on every request.

RequestCompressionGZip:   Ask server to use GZip compression.

Ask server to use GZip compression.

RequestCompressionLevel:   Ask server to use the specified compression level.

Ask server to use the specified compression level.

SendBufferSize:   Size of send buffer in bytes.

The size of blocks used to send data to the server.

SuppressRedirectionContent:   Whether to suppress the redirection content.

If this property is set to True, the redirection content will be silently suppressed by the component. Otherwise the message containing a redirection code will be processed as usual, the Redirection event will be fired, and the data will be written to OutputString or OutputBytes.

TempPath:   Path for storing temporary files.

This setting specifies an absolute path to the location on disk where temporary files are stored.

TolerateMinorChainIssues:   Whether to tolerate minor chain issues.

TBD

Use100Continue:   Whether to use 100-continue for POST and PUT commands.

Set this property to True to use the 100-continue approach for POST and PUT commands. In this approach, prior to sending the request body, the client sends a request message asking the server whether it is willing to accept the request body. The request body is sent only if the server accepts it.

UseCompression:   Whether to use GZip compression.

Use this property to tell the server that it can transfer GZIPped data (if the server supports it).

UseMicrosoftCTL:   Enables or disables automatic use of Microsoft online certificate trust list.

Enable this property to make the chain validation module automatically look up missing CA certificates in the public Windows Update repository.

UseSystemCertificates:   Enables or disables the use of the system certificates.

Use this property to tell chain validation module automatically look up missing CA certificates in the system certificates. In many cases it is beneficial to switch this property on, as the operating system certificate configuration provides a representative trust framework.

Base Configuration Settings

CheckKeyIntegrityBeforeUse:   Enables or disable private key integrity check before use.

This global property enables or disables private key material check before each signing operation. This slows down performance a bit, but prevents a selection of attacks on RSA keys where keys with unknown origins are used.

You can switch this property off to improve performance if your project only uses known, good private keys.

CookieCaching:   Specifies whether a cookie cache should be used for HTTP(S) transports.

Set this property to enable or disable cookies caching for the component.

Supported values are:

offNo caching (default)
localLocal caching (supported for HTTPClient, RESTClient and SOAPClient only)
globalGlobal caching

Cookies:   Gets or sets local cookies for the component (supported for HTTPClient, RESTClient and SOAPClient only).

Use this property to get cookies from the internal cookie storage of the component and/or restore them back between application sessions.

DefDeriveKeyIterations:   Specifies the default key derivation algorithm iteration count.

This global property sets the default number of iterations for all supported key derivation algorithms. Note that you can provide the required number of iterations by using properties of the relevant key generation component; this global setting is used in scenarios where specific iteration count is not or cannot be provided.

EnableClientSideSSLFFDHE:   Enables or disables finite field DHE key exchange support in TLS clients.

This global property enables or disables support for finite field DHE key exchange methods in TLS clients. FF DHE is a slower algorithm if compared to EC DHE; enabling it may result in slower connections.

This setting only applies to sessions negotiated with TLS version 1.3.

GlobalCookies:   Gets or sets global cookies for all the HTTP transports.

Use this property to get cookies from the GLOBAL cookie storage or restore them back between application sessions. These cookies will be used by all the components that have its CookieCaching property set to "global".

HttpUserAgent:   Specifies the user agent name to be used by all HTTP clients.

This global setting defines the User-Agent field of the HTTP request provides information about the software that initiates the request. This value will be used by all the HTTP clients including the ones used internally in other components.

LogDestination:   Specifies the debug log destination.

Contains a comma-separated list of values that specifies where debug log should be dumped.

Supported values are:

fileFile
consoleConsole
systemlogSystem Log (supported for Android only)
debuggerDebugger (supported for VCL for Windows and .Net)

LogDetails:   Specifies the debug log details to dump.

Contains a comma-separated list of values that specifies which debug log details to dump.

Supported values are:

timeCurrent time
levelLevel
packagePackage name
moduleModule name
classClass name
methodMethod name
threadidThread Id
contenttypeContent type
contentContent
allAll details

LogFile:   Specifies the debug log filename.

Use this property to provide a path to the log file.

LogFilters:   Specifies the debug log filters.

Contains a comma-separated list of value pairs ("name:value") that describe filters.

Supported filter names are:

exclude-packageExclude a package specified in the value
exclude-moduleExclude a module specified in the value
exclude-classExclude a class specified in the value
exclude-methodExclude a method specified in the value
include-packageInclude a package specified in the value
include-moduleInclude a module specified in the value
include-classInclude a class specified in the value
include-methodInclude a method specified in the value

LogFlushMode:   Specifies the log flush mode.

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

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 specify the log event number threshold. This threshold may have different effects, depending on the rotation setting and/or the flush mode.

The default value of this setting is 100.

LogRotationMode:   Specifies the log rotation mode.

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.
