The XAdESSigner component creates XAdES-compliant signature files.

Syntax

nsoftware.SecureBlackbox.Xadessigner

Remarks

XAdESSigner can sign XML documents in accordance with XAdES standard. Originally developed and adopted in the European Union, XAdES has quickly become a recognized international standard for signing XML documents. XAdES provides a convenient framework for creating short-lived and long-term signatures over any kind of XML documents, and is now used by governments, healthcare providers, banks, and independent service providers all across the globe.

Standards and technologies supported

XAdESSigner offers the following signing capabilities:

  • Create and upgrade XAdES signatures in accordance with the most recent XAdES specification (ETSI EN 319 132). Earlier versions are also supported.
  • All profiles are supported (BES, EPES, T, C, X, XL, A, including the Extended variants).
  • Timestamping using external TSAs.
  • All industry-standard cryptographic algorithms (RSA, ECDSA, SHA256-512, and many others).

Configuring the signature parameters

Configuring XAdESSigner to make it produce a signature of the right type is the main task you would need to perform in your code. Normally the service or software you will be communicating your XML documents to will provide you with the list of requirements that your signatures should match.

Typically, those will dictate the following key aspects of the signatures:

  • The signature Form, sometimes referred to as Level (such BES, T, XL, A, or Extended-XLong). This can be adjusted with the XAdESForm property.
  • Whether the signature should be detached, enveloped, or enveloping: adjust via SignatureType property.
  • When creating a timestamped signature (such as T or A), provide the address of your online TSA service via TimestampServer property.
  • When creating long-term signatures that include the signing chain and validation material, tune up validation parameters via RevocationCheck, OfflineMode, and IgnoreChainValidationErrors properties.

In some circumstances you will also need to adjust the following lower-level settings:

  • Choose a specific XAdES version between 1.4.1, 1.3.2, 1.2.2, and 1.1.1, and assign it to XAdESVersion property.
  • Specify the needed canonicalization method using the CanonicalizationMethod property.
  • Provide the hash algorithm via the HashAlgorithm property.

Signing certificates

XAdESSigner can use certificates residing on different media. Besides generic certificates stored in PFX or PEM files (A1), it can operate with non-exportable certificates residing on hardware media (A3) or in the cloud.

Non-exportable certificates can be accessed transparently via a Windows CSP or a PKCS#11 driver, if supplied by the certificate issuer. Proprietary interfaces can be plugged in with the external signing feature (see below).

You can use CertificateManager and CertificateStorage components to access the signing certificate. Assign the certificate to SigningCertificate property, and optionally provide the remainder of its chain via SigningChain property.

Note: If signing with a non-exportable key (such as residing on a hardware device or in the cloud), please make sure you keep the original CertificateStorage object open until the signing is completed. This is because the storage component provides a 'bridge' to the private key. If the storage is closed prematurely, this bridge is destroyed, and the private key can't be used.

You don't need to provide a signing certificate or chain when timestamping and upgrading signatures, since this type of operation does not involve the signing private key.

Signing the document

Now that you have set up all signature properties and attached the signing certificate, it is time to proceed to signing. You can provide the input document in one of the following forms: as a file (assign the path to InputFile property), as a stream (assign to InputStream property), or as a byte array (assign to InputBytes). Similarly, the output can be collected in one of the same forms, either by passing the destination path or stream via OutputFile and OutputStream respectively, or by reading the resulting document bytes from the OutputBytes property after the signing completes.

Having set up the input and output (unless using OutputBytes, which should be read later), call the component's Sign method. This will initiate the signing process. Depending on the settings, the signing may be as straightforward as calculating the document hash and signing it with the private key (e.g. in XAdES-BES variant), or it may involve advanced chain validation routines (XAdES-XL or -A). During the latter the component may contact a number of external revocation information sources (CRL and OCSP servers) to establish the validity of the signing certificate.

If a TSA server was provided via the TimestampServer property, the component will contact it too to timestamp the new signature.

During the signing XAdESSigner may fire events to let your code know of certain conditions. It may fire TLSCertValidate if one of the HTTP endpoints involved in the operation (which may be a CRL, OCSP, or TSA service) works over TLS and needs its certificate to be validated. It may also fire FormatElement and FormatText to let your code apply custom formatting to XML document elements. If XAdESSigner fails to resolve one of the references in the signature, it will fire ResolveReference to let your code help with resolving it.

When the signing operation completes, the output file, stream, or byte array will contain the signature of the requested kind. Note that while nveloped and enveloping signatures contain the signed content within them, detached signatures assume that you supply the original content separately.

Apart from signing, XAdESSigner can perform operations on signatures of other kinds. Use Upgrade method to upgrade an existing XAdES signature to a higher level (e.g. BES to XL). Use Timestamp to add a generic or validation timestamp to an existing signature.

External signing and DCAuth

XAdESSigner, like many other components offered by the product, supports two methods of signing with external keys. These methods are fully independent of each other: you can choose the one that suits your usage scenario best.

Synchronous method: ExternalSign

This is a simpler method that basically lets you infiltrate into the heart of the signing routine by taking care of the hash signing operation. The component does the rest of the job (hash calculation, preparation of signature objects, CRL/OCSP retrieval).

To initiate this method, call SignExternal instead of Sign. When the hash is ready, it will be passed back to your code with ExternalSign event. Your event handler needs to sign the hash with the private key and return the created signature back to the component - which will embed it into the document.

You don't need your signing certificate to contain an associated private key when using this method. The certificate itself (its public copy) may be needed though, as it is often included in the hash calculation.

This method is synchronous, meaning SignExternal provides you the results immediately upon its completion.

Asynchronous method: DCAuth

DCAuth is a SecureBlackbox-own know-how technology. This protocol was designed to allow sharing of private keys across environments, allowing the signer and the private key to reside on different systems. It works in the following way:

  • The signing party - such as XAdESSigner - initiates the operation using SignAsyncBegin call. This produces two outcomes: a pre-signed document (a document with a blank signature placeholder), and a request state (an object containing a hash that needs to be signed). At this point the XAdESSigner instance can be released, and the process itself terminated (which may be useful when run as part of a web page).
  • The request state is passed to the private key holder party. The private key holder passes the request state to a DCAuth object, which parses the request state, extracts the hash, and signs it. The output of DCAuth processing is another object, response state, which contains the signature. The private key holder then sends the response state back to the signing party.
  • The signing party re-creates the controls, and passes the response state, together with the pre-signed version of the document, to the signer's SignAsyncEnd method. SignAsyncEnd extracts the signature from the response state and incorporates it into the pre-signed document.

This method is asynchronous in that sense that, from the signing party's viewpoint, it splits the signing operation into the pre-signing and completion stages which can be performed independently from each other and in different execution contexts. This makes this method particularly helpful for use in web pages and other scenarios where the signing key is not available in real time.

Fine-grained chain validation setup

Chain validation is a sophisticated, multi-faceted procedure that involves a lot of variables. Depending on the configuration of your operating environment, the specifics of the PKI framework being used, and the validation policy you need to follow, you may want to tune up your chain validation parameters so they fit them best. Below is given a summary of such parameters.

  • RevocationCheck property lets you choose between and/or prioritize revocation origins. OCSP sources are often preferred to CRL because of their real-time capability and the smaller size of validation tokens they produce.
  • OfflineMode is a master switch that stops component from looking for any validation tokens online. If this property is switched on, the component will only use KnownCertificates, TrustedCertificates, KnownCRLs, and KnownOCSPs collections to look for the missing validation material.
  • IgnoreChainValidationErrors makes the component ignore any major validation issues it encounters (such us an untrusted chain or missing CRL). This option is handy for debugging and for creating signatures in the environments where the signing certificate is not trusted.
  • KnownCertificates, KnownCRLs, and KnownOCSPs let you provide your own validation material. This may be useful when working in OfflineMode, where the signer has no access to the validation sources, or where the validation material has already been collected.
  • TrustedCertificates lets you provide a list of trust anchors, either as a complement to the system's or as an alternative for it.
  • BlockedCertificates lets you provide a list of blocked/distrusted certificates. Any CA certificate contained in it will be deemed untrusted/invalid.

The following parameters are not directly related to chain validation, but may have an implicit effect on it.

  • Proxy, SocketSettings, and TLSSettings let you tune up the connectivity and TLS options in accordance with local preferences.
  • TLSClientChain lets you provide the client certificate and its chain for TLS client authentication.
  • Subscribe to TLSCertValidate to validate any TLS certificates of the services involved in chain validation.

The results of the chain validation procedure, upon its completion, are published in the following properties:

  • ChainValidationResult contains the primary result of the chain validation routine: valid, valid but untrusted, invalid, or undefined.
  • ChainValidationDetails provides the details of the factors that contributed to the chain validation result, such as an outdated certificate, a missing CRL, or a missing CA certificate.
  • ValidationLog contains the detailed chain validation log. The log can often be very helpful in nailing down various validation issues.

InterimValidationResult Property (XAdESSigner Component)

Contains the validation status of the moment.

Syntax

public XadessignerInterimValidationResults InterimValidationResult { get; set; }

enum XadessignerInterimValidationResults { cvtValid, cvtValidButUntrusted, cvtInvalid, cvtCantBeEstablished }
Public Property InterimValidationResult As XadessignerInterimValidationResults

Enum XadessignerInterimValidationResults cvtValid cvtValidButUntrusted cvtInvalid cvtCantBeEstablished End Enum

Default Value

0

Remarks

Over the course of the validation process, the validator maintains an interim validity status for the chain that is being processed. This status is influenced by every single step of the validation routine, and may change along the way, before the end of the chain is reached and the final validation conclusion is drawn.

Use this property to check the interim validity status mid-flight.

cvtValid0The chain is valid

cvtValidButUntrusted1The chain is valid, but the root certificate is not trusted

cvtInvalid2The chain is not valid (some of certificates are revoked, expired, or contain an invalid signature)

cvtCantBeEstablished3The validity of the chain cannot be established because of missing or unavailable validation information (certificates, CRLs, or OCSP responses)

This property is not available at design time.

KnownCertificates Property (XAdESSigner Component)

Additional certificates for chain validation.

Syntax

public CertificateList KnownCertificates { get; }
Public Property KnownCertificates As CertificateList

Remarks

Use this property to supply a list of additional certificates that might be needed for chain validation. An example of a scenario where you might want to do that is when intermediary 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 certificates to be added to this collection is roughly equivalent to that of Intermediate Certification Authorities system store in Windows.

Do not add trust anchors or root certificates to this collection: add them to TrustedCertificates instead.

This property is not available at design time.

KnownCRLs Property (XAdESSigner Component)

Additional CRLs for chain validation.

Syntax

public CRLList KnownCRLs { get; }
Public Property KnownCRLs As CRLList

Remarks

Use this property to supply additional CRLs that might be needed for chain validation. This property may be helpful when a chain is validated in offline mode, and the associated CRLs are stored separately from the signed message or document.

Profile Property (XAdESSigner Component)

Specifies a pre-defined profile to apply when creating the signature.

Syntax

public string Profile { get; set; }
Public Property Profile As String

Default Value

""

Remarks

Advanced signatures come in many variants, which are often defined by parties that needs to process them or by local standards. SecureBlackbox profiles are sets of pre-defined configurations which correspond to particular signature variants.

Syntax

public XadessignerRevocationChecks RevocationCheck { get; set; }

enum XadessignerRevocationChecks { crcNone, crcAuto, crcAllCRL, crcAllOCSP, crcAllCRLAndOCSP, crcAnyCRL, crcAnyOCSP, crcAnyCRLOrOCSP, crcAnyOCSPOrCRL }
Public Property RevocationCheck As XadessignerRevocationChecks

Enum XadessignerRevocationChecks crcNone crcAuto crcAllCRL crcAllOCSP crcAllCRLAndOCSP crcAnyCRL crcAnyOCSP crcAnyCRLOrOCSP crcAnyOCSPOrCRL End Enum

Default Value

1

Remarks

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

Certificate Revocation Lists (CRL) and Online Certificate Status Protocol (OCSP) responses serve the same purpose of ensuring that the certificate had not been revoked by the Certificate Authority (CA) at the time of use. Depending on your circumstances and security policy requirements, you may want to use either one or both of the revocation information source types.

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.

SignatureType Property (XAdESSigner Component)

The signature type to employ when signing the document.

Syntax

public XadessignerSignatureTypes SignatureType { get; set; }

enum XadessignerSignatureTypes { cxstDetached, cxstEnveloping, cxstEnveloped }

SigningCertificate Property (XAdESSigner Component)

The certificate to be used for signing.

Syntax

public Certificate SigningCertificate { get; set; }
Public Property SigningCertificate As Certificate

Remarks

Use this property to specify the certificate that shall be used for signing the data. Note that this certificate should have a private key associated with it. Use SigningChain to supply the rest of the certificate chain for inclusion into the signature.

This property is not available at design time.

SigningChain Property (XAdESSigner Component)

The signing certificate chain.

Syntax

public CertificateList SigningChain { get; }
Public Property SigningChain As CertificateList

TLSClientChain Property (XAdESSigner Component)

The TLS client certificate chain.

Syntax

public CertificateList TLSClientChain { get; }
Public Property TLSClientChain As CertificateList

This property is read-only.

TrustedCertificates Property (XAdESSigner Component)

A list of trusted certificates for chain validation.

Syntax

public CertificateList TrustedCertificates { get; }
Public Property TrustedCertificates As CertificateList

Remarks

Use this property to supply a list of trusted certificates that might be needed for chain validation. 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.

ValidationLog Property (XAdESSigner Component)

Contains the complete log of the certificate validation routine.

AddDataReference Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Creates a new XML reference to the specified data.

Syntax

public void AddDataReference(string dataURI, byte[] data);
Public Sub AddDataReference(ByVal DataURI As String, ByVal Data As Byte())

Remarks

This method uses HashAlgorithm property to specify the hash algorithm of the reference.

AddReference Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Creates a new XML reference to the specified XML element.

Syntax

public void AddReference(string targetXmlElement, string customId, bool autoGenerateId);
Public Sub AddReference(ByVal TargetXmlElement As String, ByVal CustomId As String, ByVal AutoGenerateId As Boolean)

Remarks

Use this method to add a reference to a particular XML element.

The reference's URI is set basing on the ID of the XML element. If the XML element doesn't have an ID then a CustomId value will be used. If CustomId is empty and AutoGenerateId is set, the ID will be generated automatically. An exception will be thrown otherwise.

This method uses CanonicalizationMethod and HashAlgorithm properties to specify the canonicalization method and hash algorithm of the reference.

Config Method (XAdESSigner 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.

DoAction Method (XAdESSigner 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;....

ExtractAsyncData Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Extracts user data from the DC signing service response.

Syntax

public string ExtractAsyncData(string asyncReply);
Public Function ExtractAsyncData(ByVal AsyncReply As String) As String

Remarks

Call this method before finalizing the asynchronous signing process to extract the data passed to the ExternalCrypto.Data property on the pre-signing stage.

The Data parameter can be used to pass some state or document identifier along with the signing request from the pre-signing to completion async stage.

Sign Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Signs an XML document.

Syntax

public void Sign();
Public Sub Sign()

Remarks

Call this method to generate a signature over an XML document.

SignAsyncBegin Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Initiates the asynchronous signing operation.

Syntax

public string SignAsyncBegin();
Public Function SignAsyncBegin() As String

Remarks

When using the DC framework, call this method to initiate the asynchronous signing process. Upon completion, a pre-signed copy of the document will be saved in OutputFile (or OutputStream). Keep the pre-signed copy somewhere local, and pass the returned string ('the request state') to the DC processor for handling.

Upon receiving the response state from the DC processor, assign the path to the pre-signed copy to InputFile (or InputStream), and call SignAsyncEnd to finalize the signing.

Note that depending on the signing method and DC configuration used, you may still need to provide the public part of the signing certificate via the SigningCertificate property.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. DC protocol is based on exchange of async states between a DC client (an application that wants to sign a PDF, XML, or Office document) and a DC server (an application that controls access to the private key). An async state can carry one or more signing requests, comprised of document hashes, or one or more signatures produced over those hashes.

In a typical scenario you get a client-side async state from the SignAsyncBegin method. This state contains document hashes to be signed on the DC server side. You then send the async state to the DC server (often represented by the DCAuth control), which processes it and produces a matching signatures state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

SignAsyncEnd Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Completes the asynchronous signing operation.

Syntax

public void SignAsyncEnd(string asyncReply);
Public Sub SignAsyncEnd(ByVal AsyncReply As String)

Remarks

When using the DC framework, call this method upon receiving the response state from the DC processor to complete the asynchronous signing process.

Before calling this method, assign the path to the pre-signed copy of the document obtained from prior SignAsyncBegin call to InputFile (or InputStream). The method will embed the signature into the pre-signed document, and save the complete signed document to OutputFile (or OutputStream).

Note that depending on the signing method and DC configuration used, you may still need to provide the public part of the signing certificate via the SigningCertificate property.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. DC protocol is based on exchange of async states between a DC client (an application that wants to sign a PDF, XML, or Office document) and a DC server (an application that controls access to the private key). An async state can carry one or more signing requests, comprised of document hashes, or one or more signatures produced over those hashes.

In a typical scenario you get a client-side async state from the SignAsyncBegin method. This state contains document hashes to be signed on the DC server side. You then send the async state to the DC server (often represented by the DCAuth control), which processes it and produces a matching signatures state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

SignExternal Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Signs the document using an external signing facility.

Syntax

public void SignExternal();
Public Sub SignExternal()

Remarks

Call this method to delegate the low-level signing operation to an external, remote, or custom signing engine. This method is useful if the signature has to be made by a device accessible through a custom or non-standard signing interface.

When all preparations are done and hash is computed, the component fires ExternalSign event which allows to pass the hash value for signing.

Timestamp Method (XAdESSigner Component)

Use this method to add timestamp.

Syntax

public void Timestamp(int timestampType);

ExternalSign Event (XAdESSigner 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, XadessignerExternalSignEventArgs e);

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

  public string HashAlgorithm { get; }

  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(); };

Specifies the parameters of external cryptographic calls.

Remarks

External cryptocalls are used in a Distributed Cryptography (DC) subsystem, which allows the delegation of security operations to the remote agent. For instance, it can be used to compute the signature value on the server, while retaining the client's private key locally.

Fields

AsyncDocumentID
String

Specifies the document ID for SignAsyncEnd() call

Use this property when working with multi-signature DCAuth requests and responses to uniquely identify documents signed within a larger batch. This value helps ASiCSigner identify the correct signature in the returned batch of responses. If using batched requests, make sure to set this property to the same value on both pre-signing (SignAsyncBegin) and completion (SignAsyncEnd) stages.

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.

Read more about configuring authentication in the KeyID topic.

Specifies the asynchronous signing method. This is typically defined by the DC server capabilities and setup.

Available options:

asmdPKCS10
asmdPKCS71

Mode

Available options:

ecmDefaultThe default value (0)
ecmDisabledDo not use DC or external signing (1)
ecmGenericGeneric external signing with OnExternalSign event (2)
ecmDCAuthDCAuth signing (3)
ecmDCAuthJSONDCAuth signing in JSON format (4)

PublicKeyAlgorithm
String

Provide public key algorithm here if the certificate is not available on the pre-signing stage.

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.

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.
