Is it possible to import a private key into a crypto service provider? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a licencing application which generates a private/public key pair in a Crypto Service Provider on the licencing machine. The private key is used to generate the licence, the public key is built into the application to be licenced. The problem is if the licencing machine dies we lose the private key. Is there a way to export the private key and then import it into a Crypto Service Provider so we can restore the private key if necessary?

  • Why not backup the complete licensing machine?

    The licensing application should be responsible to create backups at least, doesn't it support it?
