The CertificateManager class supports importing, exporting, and generating X.509 certificates.

Syntax

secureblackbox.CertificateManager

Remarks

Usage of this class includes importing and exporting certificates and keys in various formats, as well as certificate generation.

Loading certificates

In vast majority of SecureBlackbox-powered projects, this component is used to import certificates from files or memory objects for further use in other components, like PDFSigner.

To load a certificate from a file, use the ImportFromFile method. This method supports all existing certificate formats, including PFX, PEM, DER, and P7B. Note that keys contained in PFX and PEM certificates are often encrypted with a password, so you will likely need to provide one for the certificate to be loaded correctly. You can either provide the password via the method's parameter, or provide it on-demand by subscribing to the PasswordNeeded event.

Alternatively, you can use ImportBytes to load a certificate from a different type of media, such as a database.

If your certificate and its private key are stored in separate files or buffers - which is often the case where PEM or DER format is used - please load the certificate with the ImportFromFile method first, and then add the key to it with a separate call to the ImportKeyFromFile method. You can mix and match the certificate and key formats in this case; CertificateManager will handle this automatically.

Note that CertificateManager can only keep one certificate at a time. If your PFX or PEM file contains more than one certificate, use CertificateStorage component to load it instead.

Generating certificates

You can use CertificateManager to generate your own certificates. To generate a certificate, please follow the below steps:
  • call CreateNew to initialize a new certificate template.
  • set all the needed certificate properties - for example, its subject, serial number, and validity period - via the Certificate property. Some of these properties will be pre-set by the preceding CreateNew call.
  • load the CA certificate to a different CertificateManager object, and assign it to the CACertificate property. Note that the CA certificate should have an associated private key. Alternatively, the CA certificate can be loaded using a CertificateStorage object, which allows to import it from a hardware device or a system store.

    Note: you do not need to load and set the CA certificate if generating a self-signed certificate.

  • Call Generate to generate a new keypair and wrap it into a certificate.
  • Save the certificate using ExportToFile or ExportBytes methods.

    Note: take care to choose a format that supports storing private keys. If you do not save the new private key at this stage, you won't be able to recover it later.

    Note: you can save the private key separately using the ExportKey method.

Generating certificate requests

Apart from certificates, CertificateManager can generate certificate requests (PKCS10). The procedure is the same as when generating certificates. Use the CertType parameter of the CreateNew call to specify that you would like to generate a certificate request, rather than a certificate. You do not need to provide a CA certificate when generating CSRs, as certificate requests are always signed with the keypair they are carrying.

CACertificate Property (CertificateManager Class)

A container for the CA certificate.

Syntax


public Certificate getCACertificate();


public void setCACertificate(Certificate CACertificate);

Remarks

Use this property to supply the CA certificate when needed.

You need to assign a valid CA certificate when generating a new certificate (including renewals), and when validating existing certificates. In the former case the assigned CA certificate should include the private key.

This property is not available at design time.

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

Certificate Property (CertificateManager Class)

A container for the certificate object.

Syntax


public Certificate getCertificate();


public void setCertificate(Certificate certificate);

Remarks

Use this property to set or access the properties of the certificate object on which the action is to be performed.

This property is not available at design time.

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

ExternalCrypto Property (CertificateManager 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.

FIPSMode Property (CertificateManager Class)

Reserved.

Syntax


public boolean isFIPSMode();


public void setFIPSMode(boolean FIPSMode);

Default Value

False

Remarks

This property is reserved for future use.

Config Method (CertificateManager 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.

CreateNew Method (CertificateManager Class)

Creates a template for a new certificate or CSR with a particular purpose in the Certificate property.

Syntax

public void createNew(int certType, String purpose, String subject);

Remarks

This method pre-generates a certificate template that matches the specified purpose. The created template has its subject and default extensions initialized according to the selected purpose. Use Generate method to complete the process by generating a new keypair and signing it with the CA certificate (if provided).

The CertType parameter specifies the type of the object that you need to create. This can be a certificate or a certificate request (CSR).

ctUnknown0Unknown or uninitialized certificate type

ctX509Certificate1An X.509 digital certificate

ctX509CertificateRequest2An X.509 certificate request (CSR)

Purpose specifies the intended use of certificate. CertificateManager pre-sets some certificate fields and extension (such as key usage) if a certain purpose is selected:

  • "generic" or an empty string: a generic certificate with no specific purpose. No extensions are pre-generated.
  • "tls": a TLS server certificate
  • "tls-client": a client-side TLS certificate
  • "email": a secure e-mail (S/MIME) certificate
  • "digsig": a digital signature certificate

Subject specifies the common name to include in the certificate. It can be a string of arbitrary format (e.g. "*.domain.com"), or a formatted RDN (e.g. "/C=US/O=Big Company, Inc./CN=Accounts receivable").

Leave all parameters empty to generate an empty template.

DoAction Method (CertificateManager 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;....

ExportBytes Method (CertificateManager Class)

Exports the certificate in the chosen format.

Syntax

public byte[] exportBytes(int format, boolean exportKey, String password);

Generate Method (CertificateManager Class)

Generates a new certificate or certificate request.

Syntax

public void generate(int keyBits);

Remarks

Call this method to generate a new certificate based on the information provided in the Certificate and CACertificate properties:

If CACertificate is not set, a self-signed certificate or certificate request will be generated based on the information set up in Certificate object.

If Certificate contains a certificate, and CACertificate is set, a certificate signed by the CA certificate will be generated based on the information configured in the Certificate object. The resulting certificate will remain in Certificate

If Certificate contains a signed certificate request, and CACertificate is set, a certificate based on the certificate request and signed by the CA certificate will be generated.

KeyBits specifies the number of bits in the key to be generated. Note that this property is ignored in the case of request-based generation.

GenerateAsyncBegin Method (CertificateManager Class)

Initiates asynchronous (DC) certificate generation.

Syntax

public String generateAsyncBegin(int keyBits);

Remarks

Call this method to initiate an asynchronous certificate generation process. Pass the obtained async state to the DC server for signing. To finalize the generation, pass the async state received from the DC server to GenerateAsyncEnd.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. The DC protocol is based on the 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 class), which processes it and produces a matching signature state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

GenerateAsyncEnd Method (CertificateManager Class)

Completes asynchronous certificate generation.

Syntax

public void generateAsyncEnd(String asyncReply);

Remarks

Call this method to finalize the asynchronous generation process and pass the async state received from DC server via AsyncReply parameter.

AsyncState is a message of the distributed cryptography (DC) protocol. The DC protocol is based on the 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 class), which processes it and produces a matching signature state. The async state produced by the server is then passed to the SignAsyncEnd method.

GenerateExternal Method (CertificateManager Class)

Generates a new certificate or request over an existing public key.

Syntax

public void generateExternal(byte[] keyBytes, String keyPassword);

Remarks

This method does exactly the same as Generate. The only difference is that instead of generating a new keypair, this method generates a new certificate over an existing keypair. See the rules of the Generate method to learn about parameter configurations for different generation scenarios.

Note: KeyBytes can contain a public or private key - as long as SecureBlackbox recognises the format, it will be processed.

GetExtensionData Method (CertificateManager Class)

Returns extension data.

Syntax

public byte[] getExtensionData(String OID);

Remarks

Use this method to retrieve extension data in ASN.1 encoded format. Use GetExtensionState to check the availability of the extension and establish its critical attribute.

Syntax

public int getExtensionState(String OID);

Remarks

Use this method to find out whether the extension is included in the certificate/CRL and check its critical attribute.

cesNotIncluded0The extension is not included in the certificate

cesCritical1The extension is included and is marked critical

cesNonCritical2The extension is included and is not marked critical

ImportBytes Method (CertificateManager Class)

Imports a certificate.

Syntax

public void importBytes(byte[] certBytes, String password);

Remarks

Use this method to load a certificate or certificate request from a byte array. Provide the password via the Password parameter. The Password parameter is optional.

Error Event (CertificateManager Class)

Information about errors during certificate loading, saving or validation.

Syntax

public class DefaultCertificateManagerEventListener implements CertificateManagerEventListener {
  ...
  public void error(CertificateManagerErrorEvent e) {}
  ...
}

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

Remarks

Reports exceptional conditions during certificate loading, exporting, or validation.

ErrorCode contains an error code and Description contains a textual description of the error.

ExternalSign Event (CertificateManager Class)

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

Syntax

public class DefaultCertificateManagerEventListener implements CertificateManagerEventListener {
  ...
  public void externalSign(CertificateManagerExternalSignEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class CertificateManagerExternalSignEvent {
  public String operationId;
  public String hashAlgorithm;
  public String pars;
  public String data;
  public String signedData; //read-write
}

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(); };

Notification Event (CertificateManager Class)

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

Syntax

public class DefaultCertificateManagerEventListener implements CertificateManagerEventListener {
  ...
  public void notification(CertificateManagerNotificationEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class CertificateManagerNotificationEvent {
  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.

PasswordNeeded Event (CertificateManager Class)

This event is fired when a decryption password is needed.

Syntax

public class DefaultCertificateManagerEventListener implements CertificateManagerEventListener {
  ...
  public void passwordNeeded(CertificateManagerPasswordNeededEvent e) {}
  ...
}

public class CertificateManagerPasswordNeededEvent {
  public String password; //read-write
  public boolean cancel; //read-write
}

Remarks

The class fires this event when a password is needed to decrypt a certificate or a private key.

In the handler of this event, assign the password to the Password parameter, or set Cancel to true to abort the operation.

Certificate Type

Encapsulates an individual X.509 certificate.

Remarks

This type keeps and provides access to X.509 certificate details.

Fields

Bytes
byte[] (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Returns the raw certificate data in DER format.

CA
boolean

Default Value: False

Indicates whether the certificate has a CA capability. For the certificate to be considered a CA, it must have its Basic Constraints extension set with the CA indicator enabled.

Set this field when generating a new certificate to have its Basic Constraints extension generated automatically.

CAKeyID
byte[] (read-only)

Default Value: ""

A unique identifier (fingerprint) of the CA certificate's cryptographic key.

Authority Key Identifier is a certificate extension which allows identification of certificates belonging to the same issuer, but with different public keys. It is a de-facto standard to include this extension in all certificates to facilitate chain building.

This setting cannot be set when generating a certificate as it always derives from another certificate property. CertificateManager generates this setting automatically if enough information is available to it: for self-signed certificates, this value is copied from the SubjectKeyID setting, and for lower-level certificates, from the parent certificate's subject key ID extension.

CertType
int (read-only)

Default Value: 0

Returns the type of the entity contained in the Certificate object.

A Certificate object can contain two types of cryptographic objects: a ready-to-use X.509 certificate, or a certificate request ("an unsigned certificate"). Certificate requests can be upgraded to full certificates by signing them with a CA certificate.

Use the CertificateManager class to load or create new certificate and certificate requests objects.

CRLDistributionPoints
String

Default Value: ""

Contains a list of locations of CRL distribution points used to check this certificate's validity. The list is taken from the respective certificate extension.

Use this field when generating a certificate to provide a list of CRL endpoints that should be made part of the new certificate.

The endpoints are provided as a list of CRLF-separated URLs. Note that this differs from the behaviour used in earlier product versions, where the "|" character was used as the location separator.

Curve
String

Default Value: ""

Specifies the elliptic curve associated with the certificate's public key. This setting only applies to certificates containing EC keys.

Fingerprint
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Contains the fingerprint (a hash imprint) of this certificate.

While there is no formal standard defining what a fingerprint is, a SHA1 hash of the certificate's DER-encoded body is typically used.

FriendlyName
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Contains an associated alias (friendly name) of the certificate. The friendly name is not a property of a certificate: it is maintained by the certificate media rather than being included in its DER representation. Windows certificate stores are one example of media that does support friendly names.

HashAlgorithm
String

Default Value: ""

Provides means to set the hash algorithm to be used in the subsequent operation on the certificate (such as generation or key signing). It is not a property of a certificate; use SigAlgorithm to find out the hash algorithm that is part of the certificate signature.

IssuerRDN
String

Default Value: ""

A list of Property=Value pairs that uniquely identify the certificate issuer.

Example: /C=US/O=Nationwide CA/CN=Web Certification Authority

SB_CERT_ALGORITHM_EDDSA_SIGNATUREid-EdDSA-sig

Use the KeyBits, Curve, and PublicKeyBytes fields to get more details about the key the certificate contains.

KeyBits
int (read-only)

Default Value: 0

Returns the length of the public key in bits.

This value indicates the length of the principal cryptographic parameter of the key, such as the length of the RSA modulus or ECDSA field. The key data returned by the PublicKeyBytes or PrivateKeyBytes field would typically contain auxiliary values, and therefore be longer.

KeyFingerprint
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Returns a SHA1 fingerprint of the public key contained in the certificate.

Note that the key fingerprint is different from the certificate fingerprint accessible via the Fingerprint field. The key fingeprint uniquely identifies the public key, and so can be the same for multiple certificates containing the same key.

KeyUsage
int

Default Value: 0

Indicates the purposes of the key contained in the certificate, in the form of an OR'ed flag set.

This value is a bit mask of the following values:

ckuUnknown0x00000Unknown key usage

ckuDigitalSignature0x00001Digital signature

ckuNonRepudiation0x00002Non-repudiation

ckuKeyEncipherment0x00004Key encipherment

ckuDataEncipherment0x00008Data encipherment

ckuKeyAgreement0x00010Key agreement

ckuKeyCertSign0x00020Certificate signing

ckuCRLSign0x00040Revocation signing

ckuEncipherOnly0x00080Encipher only

ckuDecipherOnly0x00100Decipher only

ckuServerAuthentication0x00200Server authentication

ckuClientAuthentication0x00400Client authentication

ckuCodeSigning0x00800Code signing

ckuEmailProtection0x01000Email protection

ckuTimeStamping0x02000Timestamping

ckuOCSPSigning0x04000OCSP signing

ckuSmartCardLogon0x08000Smartcard logon

ckuKeyPurposeClientAuth0x10000Kerberos - client authentication

ckuKeyPurposeKDC0x20000Kerberos - KDC

Set this field before generating the certificate to propagate the key usage flags to the new certificate.

KeyValid
boolean (read-only)

Default Value: False

Returns True if the certificate's key is cryptographically valid, and False otherwise.

OCSPLocations
String

Default Value: ""

Locations of OCSP services that can be used to check this certificate's validity in real time, as recorded by the CA.

Set this field before calling the certificate manager's Generate method to propagate it to the new certificate.

The OCSP locations are provided as a list of CRLF-separated URLs. Note that this differs from the behaviour used in earlier product versions, where the "|" character was used as the location separator.

OCSPNoCheck
boolean

Default Value: False

Accessor to the value of the certificate's ocsp-no-check extension.

Origin
int (read-only)

Default Value: 0

Returns the location that the certificate was taken or loaded from.

PolicyIDs
String

Default Value: ""

Contains identifiers (OIDs) of the applicable certificate policies.

The Certificate Policies extension identifies a sequence of policies under which the certificate has been issued, and which regulate its usage.

Set this field when generating a certificate to propagate the policies information to the new certificate.

The policies are provided as a list of CRLF-separated entries. Note that this differs from the behaviour used in earlier product versions, where the "|" character was used as the policy element separator.

PrivateKeyBytes
byte[] (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Returns the certificate's private key in DER-encoded format. It is normal for this field to be empty if the private key is non-exportable, which, for example, is typical for certificates originating from hardware security devices.

PrivateKeyExists
boolean (read-only)

Default Value: False

Indicates whether the certificate has a usable private key associated with it. If it is set to True, the certificate can be used for private key operations, such as signing or decryption.

This field is independent from PrivateKeyBytes, and can be set to True even if the former is empty. This would imply that the private key is non-exportable, but still can be used for cryptographic operations.

PrivateKeyExtractable
boolean (read-only)

Default Value: False

Indicates whether the private key is extractable (exportable).

PublicKeyBytes
byte[] (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Contains the certificate's public key in DER format.

This typically would contain an ASN.1-encoded public key value. The exact format depends on the type of the public key contained in the certificate.

Qualified
boolean (read-only)

Default Value: False

Indicates whether the certificate is qualified.

This property is set to True if the certificate is confirmed by a Trusted List to be qualified.

QualifiedStatements
int

Default Value: 0

Returns a simplified qualified status of the certificate.

Qualifiers
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

A list of qualifiers.

Contains a comma-separated list of qualifier aliases for the certificate, for example QCP-n-qscd,QCWithSSCD.

SelfSigned
boolean (read-only)

Default Value: False

Indicates whether the certificate is self-signed (root) or signed by an external CA.

SerialNumber
byte[]

Default Value: ""

Returns the certificate's serial number.

The serial number is a binary string that uniquely identifies a certificate among others issued by the same CA. According to the X.509 standard, the (issuer, serial number) pair should be globally unique to facilitate chain building.

SigAlgorithm
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

Indicates the algorithm that was used by the CA to sign this certificate.

A signature algorithm typically combines hash and public key algorithms together, such as sha256WithRSAEncryption or ecdsa-with-SHA256.

Source
int (read-only)

Default Value: 0

Returns the source (location or disposition) of a cryptographic primitive entity, such as a certificate, CRL, or OCSP response.

Subject
String (read-only)

Default Value: ""

The common name of the certificate holder, typically an individual's name, a URL, an e-mail address, or a company name. This is part of a larger set of credentials available via SubjectRDN.

SubjectAlternativeName
String

Default Value: ""

Returns or sets the value of the Subject Alternative Name extension of the certificate.

Subject alternative names are used to provide additional names that are impractical to store in the main SubjectRDN field. For example, it is often used to store all the domain names that a TLS certificate is authorized to protect.

The alternative names are provided as a list of CRLF-separated entries. Note that this differs from the behaviour used in earlier product versions, where the "|" character was used as the element separator.

SubjectKeyID
byte[]

Default Value: ""

Contains a unique identifier of the certificate's cryptographic key.

Subject Key Identifier is a certificate extension which allows a specific public key to be associated with a certificate holder. Typically, subject key identifiers of CA certificates are recorded as respective CA key identifiers in the subordinate certificates that they issue, which facilitates chain building.

The SubjectKeyID and CAKeyID fields of self-signed certificates typically contain identical values, as in that specific case, the issuer and the subject are the same entity.

SubjectRDN
String

Default Value: ""

A list of Property=Value pairs that uniquely identify the certificate holder (subject).

Depending on the purpose of the certificate and the policies of the CA that issued it, the values included in the subject record may differ drastically and contain business or personal names, web URLs, email addresses, and other data.

Example: /C=US/O=Oranges and Apples, Inc./OU=Accounts Receivable/1.2.3.4.5=Value with unknown OID/CN=Margaret Watkins.

Valid
boolean (read-only)

Default Value: False

Indicates whether or not the signature over the certificate or the request is valid and matches the public key contained in the CA certificate/request.

ValidFrom
String

Default Value: ""

The time point at which the certificate becomes valid, in UTC.

ValidTo
String

Default Value: ""

The time point at which the certificate expires, in UTC.

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.

Constructors

public ExternalCrypto();

Creates a new ExternalCrypto object with default field values.

Config Settings (CertificateManager 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.

CertificateManager Config Settings

KeyExchangePIN:   The KeyExchange PIN to provide to the key in runtime.

Sets the key exchange PIN to pass to the private key in runtime. This property can be used with certificates originating from Windows (system://) or PKCS#11 (pkcs11://) certificate stores.

SignaturePIN:   The Signature PIN to provide to the key in runtime.

Sets the signature PIN to pass to the private key in runtime. This property can be used with certificates originating from Windows (system://) or PKCS#11 (pkcs11://) certificate stores.

TempPath:   Path for storing temporary files.

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

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

Cookies:   Gets or sets local cookies for the class.

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".

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 classes.

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

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.

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.
