Demonstrates how to export a private key from a Microsoft Storage Provider.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.83 or greater.

Procedure Test
    Handle hoCert
    Boolean iSuccess
    Variant vPrivKey
    Handle hoPrivKey
    String sStorageProvider
    String sKeyName

    Boolean bTemp1

    // This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.83 or greater.

    // We'll export a certificate's private key from the MS storage provider.
    // It is assumed the certificate + private key is already installed on the Windows system.
    // The export does not remove the key from the Windows storage provider.

    // First, let's get a certificate in one of the many ways we can do it.
    // (I ran certmgr.msc, opened a certificate, and noted it's thumbprint.)
    Get Create (RefClass(cComChilkatCert)) To hoCert
    If (Not(IsComObjectCreated(hoCert))) Begin
        Send CreateComObject of hoCert
    End
    Get ComLoadByThumbprint Of hoCert "ea5a129c1919a52d238ee28d9f3a8f345b768388" "hex" To iSuccess
    If (iSuccess = False) Begin
        Get ComLastErrorText Of hoCert To sTemp1
        Showln sTemp1
        Procedure_Return
    End

    // OK.. we have the private key.  Do whatever we want with it..

    Send Destroy of hoPrivKey

    // -------------------------------------------------------------
    // Now let's export in a more roundabout way by getting information about the 
    // storage provider and key name and then we'll export completely independent
    // of the certificate.
    // 
    // Remember: The private key is not contained within the certificate.  An X.509 certificate
    // embeds the public key, but the counterpart private key is stored elsewhere, such
    // as in a .pfx/.p12, or as in this case, in the Windows "protected store", or perhaps on
    // a smartcard or hardware token.  (But a private key stored on a smartcard or token cannot
    // be exported.  It must remain on the hardware.)
    //

    Get ComKeyContainerName Of hoCert To sKeyName

    Showln "Information about the certificate's private key:"

    Showln "Key Name: " sKeyName

    // Perhaps we save as encrypted PKCS8 PEM.
