Encrypting Data on Vista using CNG API RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,


    I am developing an application to encrypt data using the Private Key present in IE Key Store. My target palteform is Windows Vista. I have looked at the sample present in the MSDN at:



    This sample encrypts and decrypts the data using CNG APIs. This sample generates a symmetric key and uses it to Encrypt the Data, and then also shows how to decrypt the data using that symmetric key.


    I want to encrypt and decrypt the data using the Asymmetric Key, i.e. Key present in the Personal Key Store. Can some one please help me, how can i acheive this using CNG APIs. A sample code will be highly appreciated.


    Thanking in advance.
