DCAuth Class

Properties   Methods   Events   Config Settings   Errors  

The DCAuth class represents the private key side of the SecureBlackbox distributed cryptography protocol.

Syntax

secureblackbox.Dcauth

Remarks

The purpose of DCAuth is to sign async requests produced by SignAsyncBegin calls. For each incoming async request containing a document hash, DCAuth produces the corresponding async response containing a signature over that hash.

Protocol Overview

The distributed cryptography protocol involves two principal parties. The signing party, represented by classes such as PDFSigner, XAdESSigner, or OfficeSigner, pre-signs documents (such as PDF files), and encapsulates their hashes into what is called an async request. It then communicates the async request to the private key side, where the DCAuth class extracts the hash and signs it with a local private key. DCAuth then encapsulates the signature into an async response, which is sent back to the signing party. The signing party completes the signing operation by extracting the signature from the async response and embedding it into the pre-signed document.

The protocol supports a variety of uses. The scheme above describes the most typical of them, where the signing party is represented by a web application, and the private key side is represented by a workstation. In that particular scenario DC provides a mechanism for the web app to sign documents residing on the web server with private keys residing on the users workstations, perhaps in non-exportable form (e.g. a USB dongle). Other uses include creation of a signing server for a team of driver developers, or an automated signing gateway for outgoing official documents.

In the webapp-to-browser setting the DCAuth control would normally be used within a web server running on the users workstation. That web server would accept async requests from the web page running in the browser, use DCAuth to generate the matching async response, and feed that response back to the web page. The web page will then submit it back to the web server.

Configuring and Using DCAuth

To process an async request, you need to set up a DCAuth object first, and then call its ProcessRequest method:

  • Set the KeyId and KeySecret properties so they match the credentials used by the signing party - e.g. those of PDFSigner object: DCAuth.KeyId = "mykeyid"; DCAuth.KeySecret = "mykeysecret123";

    These two properties are used to verify the integrity of the incoming async requests. Keep them safe.

  • Provide the signing certificate: DCAuth.SigningCertificate = "C:\Certs\SigningCert.pfx"; DCAuth.CertPassword = "password789";

    Alternatively, use StorageId to provide a certificate residing elsewhere, such as a PKCS#11 device.

  • Assign the async request to the Input property: DCAuth.Input = Request;

    Make sure to provide the request in its original XML format. Some technologies and SecureBlackbox code samples may apply additional encoding when conveying async requests from their origin to the DCAuth endpoint. Please double check that you assign the request without any encodings applied. An async request is a properly formed XML document with the root element of SecureBlackboxAsyncState.

  • Call the ProcessRequest method: DCAuth.ProcessRequest;

    This method performs the actual signing of the hash. Make sure your code is prepared for potential signing errors.

  • If the ProcessRequest call has succeeded, grab the async response from the Output property: Result = DCAuth.Output;
Please see the demo folder for more in-depth code examples of this class.

Default Value

""

Remarks

Use this property to provide the signature production time. The claimed time is not supported by a trusted source; it may be inaccurate, forfeited, or wrong, and as such is usually taken for informational purposes only by verifiers. Use timestamp servers to embed verifiable trusted timestamps. The time is in UTC.

ExternalCrypto Property (DCAuth Class)

Provides access to external signing and DC parameters.

Syntax


public ExternalCrypto getExternalCrypto();


Remarks

Use this property to tune-up remote cryptography settings. SecureBlackbox supports two independent types of external cryptography: synchronous (based on the ExternalSign event) and asynchronous (based on the DC protocol and the DCAuth signing component).

This property is read-only.

Please refer to the ExternalCrypto type for a complete list of fields.

Contains the signing request to process.

Syntax


public String getInput();


public void setInput(String input);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Assign the request you received from the counterparty to this property before calling the ProcessRequest method. Use Output to read the resulting signature response after ProcessRequest completes.

InputEncoding Property (DCAuth Class)

Specifies request encoding.

Syntax


public int getInputEncoding();


public void setInputEncoding(int inputEncoding);


Enumerated values:
  public final static int encNone = 0;

KeyId Property (DCAuth Class)

Specifies the KeyID of the pre-shared authentication key.

Syntax


public String getKeyId();


public void setKeyId(String keyId);

Default Value

""

Remarks

If processing requests from a single known party, assign the Id of the key you pre-shared with them to this property, and the key itself to the KeySecret property. If you expect to receive requests from many parties with different authentication keys, use KeySecretNeeded event instead.

KeySecret Property (DCAuth Class)

The pre-shared authentication key.

Syntax


public String getKeySecret();


public void setKeySecret(String keySecret);

Default Value

""

Remarks

If processing requests from a single known party, assign the key you pre-shared with them to this property. Use KeyId property to assign the ID of that key. If you expect to receive requests from many parties with different authentication keys, use KeySecretNeeded event instead.

Output Property (DCAuth Class)

Contains the output of the request processing.

Syntax


public String getOutput();

Policies Property (DCAuth Class)

Specifies the policies to use when processing requests.

Syntax


public int getPolicies();


public void setPolicies(int policies);

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property lets you specify policies to apply blanketly to the requests. If this property does not give you enough flexibility - for example, if you need to cherry-pick requests basing on their content - please consider using the SignRequest (allows you to track individual requests) and/or ExternalSign (lets you perform the signing manually) events. This setting is a bit mask of the following flags:

aspAcceptUnsignedRequests1Allows the component to accept unauthenticated messages (those not signed with KeyID/KeySecret). Use with extreme care.

aspIgnorePKCS1Requests2Ignore requests of PKCS1 type.

aspIgnorePKCS7Requests4Ignore requests of PKCS7 type.

aspIgnoreRequestTSA8Ignore the TSA URL provided in the request, and either stick with the service provided via TimestampServer property, or not timestamp the message altogether.

aspIgnoreRequestSigningTime16Ignore the signing time included in the request.

aspIgnoreRequestPKCS7Settings32Ignore auxiliary PKCS7 settings (content type, attributes) included in the request.

aspAlwaysTimestampSigs64Timestamp created signatures (PKCS7 only), even if the client did not request it.

This property is not available at design time.

Profile Property (DCAuth Class)

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

Syntax


public String getProfile();


public void setProfile(String profile);

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. By specifying a profile, you are pre-configuring the component to make it produce the signature that matches the configuration corresponding to that profile.

Proxy Property (DCAuth Class)

The proxy server settings.

Syntax


public ProxySettings getProxy();


Remarks

Use this property to tune up the proxy server settings.

This property is read-only.

Please refer to the ProxySettings type for a complete list of fields.

SigningCertificate Property (DCAuth Class)

The certificate to be used for signing.

Syntax


public Certificate getSigningCertificate();


public void setSigningCertificate(Certificate signingCertificate);

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.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

SigningChain Property (DCAuth Class)

The signing certificate chain.

Syntax


public CertificateList getSigningChain();


public void setSigningChain(CertificateList signingChain);

Remarks

Use this property to provide the chain for the signing certificate. Use the SigningCertificate property, if it is available, to provide the signing certificate itself.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

SocketSettings Property (DCAuth Class)

Manages network connection settings.

Syntax


public SocketSettings getSocketSettings();


Remarks

Use this property to tune up network connection parameters.

This property is read-only.

Please refer to the SocketSettings type for a complete list of fields.

StorageId Property (DCAuth Class)

Specifies the signing certificate residing in an alternative location.

Syntax


public String getStorageId();


public void setStorageId(String storageId);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Use this property to specify the signing certificate contained on alternative media, such as a hardware device or in a system certificate store.

Example 1: The certificate resides on a PKCS#11 device

pkcs11://user:pin@/c:/windows/system32/pkcsdriver.dll?slot=0&readonly=1

Example 2: The certificate resides in a system store

system://localmachine@/?store=MY

You can use the following URI modifiers to provide more accurate specifiers for the needed certificate:

  • cn: the common name of the certificate subject.
  • keyid: the unique identifier included in subject key identifier extension of the certificate.
  • keyusage: a comma-separated list of enabled (+) or disabled (-) key usages. The following usages are supported: signature, nonrepudiation, keyencipherment, dataencipherment, keyagreement, keycertsign, crlsign, encipheronly, decipheronly, serverauth, clientauth, codesigning, emailprotection, timestamping, ocspsigning, smartcardlogon, keypurposeclientauth, keypurposekdc.
  • fingerprint: the fingerprint of the certificate.

Example 3: selecting the certificate with a given fingerprint:

pkcs11://user:pin@/c:/windows/system32/pkcsdriver.dll?slot=0&readonly=1&fingerprint=001122334455667788aabbccddeeff0011223344

TimestampServer Property (DCAuth Class)

The address of the timestamping server.

Syntax


public String getTimestampServer();


public void setTimestampServer(String timestampServer);

Default Value

""

Remarks

Use this property to provide the address of the Time Stamping Authority (TSA) server to be used for timestamping the signature.

SecureBlackbox supports RFC3161-compliant timestamping servers, available via HTTP or HTTPS.

If your timestamping service enforces credential-based user authentication (basic or digest), you can provide the credentials in the same URL:

http://user:password@timestamp.server.com/TsaService

For TSAs using certificate-based TLS authentication, provide the client certificate via the TLSClientChain property.

If this property is left empty, no timestamp will be added to the signature.

Starting from summer 2021 update (Vol. 2), the virtual timestamping service is supported, which allows you to intervene in the timestamping routine and provide your own handling for the TSA exchange. This may be handy if the service that you are requesting timestamps from uses a non-standard TSP protocol or requires special authentication option.

To employ the virtual service, assign an URI of the following format to this property:

virtual://localhost?hashonly=true&includecerts=true&reqpolicy=1.2.3.4.5&halg=SHA256

Subscribe to Notification event to get notified about the virtualized timestamping event. The EventID of the timestamping event is TimestampRequest. Inside the event handler, read the base16-encoded request from the EventParam parameter and forward it to the timestamping authority. Upon receiving the response, pass it back to the component, encoded in base16, via the TimestampResponse config property:

component.Config("TimestampResponse=308208ab...");

Note that all the exchange with your custom TSA should take place within the same invocation of the Notification event.

The hashonly parameter of the virtual URI tells the component to only return the timestamp message imprint via the EventParam parameter. If set to false, EventParam will contain the complete RFC3161 timestamping request.

The includecerts parameter specifies that the requestCertificates parameter of the timestamping request should be set to true.

The reqpolicy parameter lets you specify the request policy, and the halg parameter specifies the hash algorithm to use for timestamping.

All the parameters are optional.

TLSClientChain Property (DCAuth Class)

The TLS client certificate chain.

Syntax


public CertificateList getTLSClientChain();


public void setTLSClientChain(CertificateList TLSClientChain);

Remarks

Assign a certificate chain to this property to enable TLS client authentication in the class. Note that the client's end-entity certificate should have a private key associated with it.

Use the CertificateStorage or CertificateManager components to import the certificate from a file, system store, or PKCS11 device.

This property is not available at design time.

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

TLSServerChain Property (DCAuth Class)

The TLS server's certificate chain.

Syntax


public CertificateList getTLSServerChain();


Remarks

Use this property to access the certificate chain sent by the TLS server. This property is ready to read when the TLSCertValidate event is fired by the client component.

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

Please refer to the Certificate type for a complete list of fields.

TLSSettings Property (DCAuth Class)

Manages TLS layer settings.

Syntax


public TLSSettings getTLSSettings();


Remarks

Use this property to tune up the TLS layer parameters.

This property is read-only.

Please refer to the TLSSettings type for a complete list of fields.

Config Method (Dcauth Class)

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

public String config(String configurationString);

Remarks

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

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

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

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

DoAction Method (Dcauth Class)

Performs an additional action.

Syntax

public String doAction(String actionID, String actionParams);

Remarks

DoAction is a generic method available in every class. 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 (case insensitive) of the action is provided in the ActionID parameter.

ActionParams contains the value of a single parameter, or a list of multiple parameters for the action in the form of PARAM1=VALUE1;PARAM2=VALUE2;....

ProcessRequest Method (Dcauth Class)

Processes the request.

Syntax

public void processRequest();

Remarks

Use this method to process the request, sign the hashes, and produce the response. This is the main method of the class. Note that a single request received from the counterparty may contain more than one signature request. This method processes them all, reporting each atomic signature request with SignRequest and SignRequestCompleted events. Before calling this method, make sure you assign the request content to Input. Upon completion, read the response (containing all the signatures) from Output property.

CustomParametersReceived Event (Dcauth Class)

Passes custom request parameters to the application.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void customParametersReceived(DcauthCustomParametersReceivedEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthCustomParametersReceivedEvent {
  public String value;
}

Remarks

This event is only provided for backward compatibility and is not currently used.

Error Event (Dcauth Class)

Reports information about errors during request processing or signing.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void error(DcauthErrorEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthErrorEvent {
  public int errorCode;
  public String description;
}

Remarks

The event is fired if an error occurs during the request processing. Use the ErrorCode and Description parameters to get the details.

ExternalSign Event (Dcauth Class)

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

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void externalSign(DcauthExternalSignEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthExternalSignEvent {
  public String operationId;
  public String hashAlgorithm;
  public String pars;
  public String methodPars;
  public String data;
  public String signedData;
}

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 class via the SignedData parameter.

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

The class uses base16 (hex) encoding for the 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 the .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(); };

The MethodPars parameter contains the method-specific parameters. For example, for PKCS7 requests it contains the requested parameters of the PKCS7 blob.

KeySecretNeeded Event (Dcauth Class)

Requests the key secret from the application.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void keySecretNeeded(DcauthKeySecretNeededEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthKeySecretNeededEvent {
  public String keyId;
  public String keySecret;
}

Remarks

Subscribe to this event to pass the key secret (a pre-shared request authentication code) to the signing component when it is needed. The authentication combination consists of the KeyId, a non-secret unique key identifier, and the KeySecret, shared by the parties, which should be kept private. This event is an alternative for KeySecret property. Use it when you expect to process requests from requestors with different KeyIds and secrets. If you only expect to receive requests from a single requestor with a known KeyId, providing the key secret via KeyId and KeySecret properties would be an easier route.

Notification Event (Dcauth Class)

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

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void notification(DcauthNotificationEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthNotificationEvent {
  public String eventID;
  public String eventParam;
}

Remarks

The class fires this event to let the application know about some event, occurrence, or milestone in the class. 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 the EventID parameter. EventParam contains any parameters accompanying the occurrence. Depending on the type of the class, the exact action it is performing, or the document being processed, one or both may be omitted.

ParameterReceived Event (Dcauth Class)

Passes a standard request parameter to the user code.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void parameterReceived(DcauthParameterReceivedEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthParameterReceivedEvent {
  public String name;
  public String value;
}

Remarks

This event is only provided for backward compatibility and is not currently used.

SignRequest Event (Dcauth Class)

This event signifies the processing of an atomic signing request.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void signRequest(DcauthSignRequestEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthSignRequestEvent {
  public int method;
  public String hashAlgorithm;
  public byte[] hash;
  public String keyID;
  public String pars;
  public String methodPars;
  public boolean allow;
}

Remarks

Subscribe to this event to be notified of every signature request processed by the DC server. Note that any one request coming from the requestor may contain multiple individual signature requests (so-called 'batching'). This event is a good mechanism to track signature requests for accountability purposes, and provide basic access control over the signing operations. The Method parameter specifies the async signing method requested by the client:

asmdPKCS10
asmdPKCS71

The Hash parameter contains the hash, made using HashAlgorithm, that needs to be signed. KeyID contains the key identifier of the requestor.

The Pars string contains a semicolon-separated string of the principal signature parameters. This has the same format and content that is passed to ExternalSign, if it is used. The MethodPars contains a similar parameter string, but for the specific async signing method used. For the PKCS1 method there are no defined method parameters, while the PKCS7 method supports a selection of settings that tune up the CMS blob.

Set Allow to false to stop the request from being served. Use the SignRequestCompleted event to track completion of the initiated operation.

SignRequestCompleted Event (Dcauth Class)

This event signifies completion of the processing of an atomic signing request.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void signRequestCompleted(DcauthSignRequestCompletedEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthSignRequestCompletedEvent {
  public int method;
  public String hashAlgorithm;
  public byte[] hash;
  public String keyID;
  public String pars;
  public String methodPars;
  public byte[] signature;
}

Remarks

Use this event to track completion of signing request processing. The Hash parameter contains the hash that is signed, as supplied by the requestor, and the Signature parameter contains the resulting cryptographic signature. The KeyID parameter matches the parameter in SignRequest event.

TimestampRequest Event (Dcauth Class)

Fires when the class is ready to request a timestamp from an external TSA.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void timestampRequest(DcauthTimestampRequestEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthTimestampRequestEvent {
  public String TSA;
  public String timestampRequest;
  public String timestampResponse;
  public boolean suppressDefault;
}

Remarks

Subscribe to this event to intercept timestamp requests. You can use it to override timestamping requests and perform them in your code.

The TSA parameter indicates the timestamping service being used. It matches the value passed to the TimestampServer property. Set the SuppressDefault parameter to false if you would like to stop the built-in TSA request from going ahead. The built-in TSA request is also not performed if the returned TimestampResponse parameter is not empty.

TLSCertNeeded Event (Dcauth Class)

Fires when a remote TLS party requests a client certificate.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void TLSCertNeeded(DcauthTLSCertNeededEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthTLSCertNeededEvent {
  public String host;
  public String CANames;
}

Remarks

This event fires to notify the implementation that a remote TLS server has requested a client certificate. The Host parameter identifies the host that makes a request, and the CANames parameter (optional, according to the TLS spec) advises on the accepted issuing CAs.

Use the TLSClientChain property in response to this event to provide the requested certificate. Please make sure the client certificate includes the associated private key. Note that you may set the certificates before the connection without waiting for this event to fire.

This event is preceded by the TLSHandshake event for the given host and, if the certificate was accepted, succeeded by the TLSEstablished event.

TLSCertValidate Event (Dcauth Class)

This event is fired upon receipt of the TLS server's certificate, allowing the user to control its acceptance.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void TLSCertValidate(DcauthTLSCertValidateEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthTLSCertValidateEvent {
  public String serverHost;
  public String serverIP;
  public boolean accept;
}

Remarks

This event is fired during a TLS handshake. Use the TLSServerChain property to access the certificate chain. In general, classes may contact a number of TLS endpoints during their work, depending on their configuration.

Accept is assigned in accordance with the outcome of the internal validation check performed by the class, and can be adjusted if needed.

TLSEstablished Event (Dcauth Class)

Fires when a TLS handshake with Host successfully completes.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void TLSEstablished(DcauthTLSEstablishedEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthTLSEstablishedEvent {
  public String host;
  public String version;
  public String ciphersuite;
  public byte[] connectionId;
  public boolean abort;
}

Remarks

The class uses this event to notify the application about a successful completion of a TLS handshake.

The Version, Ciphersuite, and ConnectionId parameters indicate the security parameters of the new connection. Use the Abort parameter if you need to terminate the connection at this stage.

TLSHandshake Event (Dcauth Class)

Fires when a new TLS handshake is initiated, before the handshake commences.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void TLSHandshake(DcauthTLSHandshakeEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthTLSHandshakeEvent {
  public String host;
  public boolean abort;
}

Remarks

The class uses this event to notify the application about the start of a new TLS handshake to Host. If the handshake is successful, this event will be followed by the TLSEstablished event. If the server chooses to request a client certificate, the TLSCertNeeded event will also be fired.

TLSShutdown Event (Dcauth Class)

Reports the graceful closure of a TLS connection.

Syntax

public class DefaultDcauthEventListener implements DcauthEventListener {
  ...
  public void TLSShutdown(DcauthTLSShutdownEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class DcauthTLSShutdownEvent {
  public String host;
}

Remarks

This event notifies the application about the closure of an earlier established TLS connection. Note that only graceful connection closures are reported.

Certificate Type

Provides details of an individual X.509 certificate.

Remarks

This type provides access to X.509 certificate details.

Loads the X.509 certificate from a memory buffer. CertBytes is a buffer containing the raw certificate data. CertStartIndex and CertCount specify the number of bytes to be read from the buffer, respectively. KeyBytes is a buffer containing the private key data. KeyStartIndex and KeyCount specify the starting position and number of bytes to be read from the buffer, respectively. Password is a password encrypting the certificate.

public Certificate( bytes,  startIndex,  count);

Loads the X.509 certificate from a memory buffer. Bytes is a buffer containing the raw certificate data. StartIndex and Count specify the starting position and number of bytes to be read from the buffer, respectively.

public Certificate( path,  password);

Loads the X.509 certificate from a file. Path specifies the full path to the file containing the certificate data. Password is a password encrypting the certificate.

public Certificate( certPath,  keyPath,  password);

Loads the X.509 certificate from a file. CertPath specifies the full path to the file containing the certificate data. KeyPath specifies the full path to the file containing the private key. Password is a password encrypting the certificate.

public Certificate( path);

public Certificate();

Creates a new object with default field values.

ExternalCrypto Type

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

Default Value: ""

Specifies an optional document ID for SignAsyncBegin() and SignAsyncEnd() calls.

Use this property when working with multi-signature DCAuth requests and responses to uniquely identify documents signed within a larger batch. On the completion stage, this value helps the signing component 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 the pre-signing (SignAsyncBegin) and completion (SignAsyncEnd) stages.

CustomParams
String

Default Value: ""

Custom parameters to be passed to the signing service (uninterpreted).

Data
String

Default Value: ""

Additional data to be included in the async state and mirrored back by the requestor.

ExternalHashCalculation
boolean

Default Value: False

Specifies whether the message hash is to be calculated at the external endpoint. Please note that this mode is not supported by the DCAuth class.

If set to true, the class will pass a few kilobytes of to-be-signed data from the document to the OnExternalSign event. This only applies when SignExternal() is called.

HashAlgorithm
String

Default Value: "SHA256"

Specifies the request's signature hash algorithm.

KeyID
String

Default Value: ""

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 an extra protection layer for the protocol and diminishes the risk of the 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

Default Value: ""

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.

Method
int

Default Value: 0

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

Available options:

asmdPKCS10
asmdPKCS71

Mode
int

Default Value: 0

Specifies the external cryptography mode.

Available options:

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

PublicKeyAlgorithm
String

Default Value: ""

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

Default Value: ""

Defines the elliptic curves to enable.

Extensions
String

Default Value: ""

Provides access to TLS extensions.

ForceResumeIfDestinationChanges
boolean

Default Value: False

Whether to force TLS session resumption when the destination address changes.

PreSharedIdentity
String

Default Value: ""

Defines the identity used when the PSK (Pre-Shared Key) key-exchange mechanism is negotiated.

PreSharedKey
String

Default Value: ""

Contains the pre-shared key for the PSK (Pre-Shared Key) key-exchange mechanism, encoded with base16.

PreSharedKeyCiphersuite
String

Default Value: ""

Defines the ciphersuite used for PSK (Pre-Shared Key) negotiation.

RenegotiationAttackPreventionMode
int

Default Value: 0

Selects the renegotiation attack prevention mechanism.

The following options are available:

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
int

Default Value: 1

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.

crcNone0No revocation checking
crcAuto1Automatic mode selection. Currently this maps to crcAnyOCSPOrCRL, but it may change in the future.
crcAllCRL2Check all provided CRL endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllOCSP3Check all provided OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAllCRLAndOCSP4Check all CRL and OCSP endpoints for all chain certificates.
crcAnyCRL5At least one CRL check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyOCSP6At least one OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed.
crcAnyCRLOrOCSP7At least one CRL or OCSP check for every certificate in the chain must succeed. CRL endpoints are checked first.
crcAnyOCSPOrCRL8At 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 the faster OCSP route and only demand one source to succeed) is a good choice for most typical validation environments. The "crcAll*" modes are much stricter, and may be used in scenarios where bulletproof validity information is essential.

Config Settings (Dcauth Class)

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

DCAuth Config Settings

DataURL:   (obsolete) The DataURL parameter to pass to the signer.

(obsolete) The RequireDefinedSignCert parameter to pass to the signer.

SchemeParams:   The algorithm scheme parameters to employ.

Use this property to specify the parameters of the algorithm scheme if needed.

This setting is used to provide parameters for some cryptographic schemes. Use the Name1=Value1;Name2=Value2;... syntax to encode the parameters. For example: Scheme=PSS;SaltSize=32;TrailerField=1.

Base Config 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 class.

Supported values are:

offNo caching (default)
localLocal caching
globalGlobal caching

Use this property to get cookies from the internal cookie storage of the class 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 classes that have its CookieCaching property set to "global".

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.

StaticDNS:   Specifies whether static DNS rules should be used.

Set this property to enable or disable static DNS rules for the class. Works only if UseOwnDNSResolver is set to true.

Supported values are:

noneNo static DNS rules (default)
localLocal static DNS rules
globalGlobal static DNS rules

StaticIPAddress[domain]:   Gets or sets an IP address for the specified domain name.

Use this property to get or set an IP address for the specified domain name in the internal (of the class) or global DNS rules storage depending on the StaticDNS value. The type of the IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) is determined automatically. If both addresses are available, they are devided by the | (pipe) character.

StaticIPAddresses:   Gets or sets all the static DNS rules.

Use this property to get static DNS rules from the current rules storage or restore them back between application sessions. If StaticDNS of the class is set to "local", the property returns/restores the rules from/to the internal storage of the class. If StaticDNS of the class is set to "global", the property returns/restores the rules from/to the GLOBAL storage. The rules list is returned and accepted in JSON format.

Tag:   Allows to store any custom data.

Use this config property to store any custom data.

TLSSessionGroup:   Specifies the group name of TLS sessions to be used for session resumption.

Use this property to limit the search of chached TLS sessions to the specified group. Sessions from other groups will be ignored. By default, all sessions are cached with an empty group name and available to all the classes.

TLSSessionLifetime:   Specifies lifetime in seconds of the cached TLS session.

Use this property to specify how much time the TLS session should be kept in the session cache. After this time, the session expires and will be automatically removed from the cache. Default value is 300 seconds (5 minutes).

TLSSessionPurgeInterval:   Specifies how often the session cache should remove the expired TLS sessions.

Use this property to specify the time interval of purging the expired TLS sessions from the session cache. Default value is 60 seconds (1 minute).

UseOwnDNSResolver:   Specifies whether the client components should use own DNS resolver.

Set this global property to false to force all the client components to use the DNS resolver provided by the target OS instead of using own one.

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.
