(MFC) Create and Verify an Opaque PKCS7/CMS Signature

Demonstrates how to create a PKCS7 opaque signature, and also how to verify an opaque signature. An opaque signature is different than a detached PKCS7 signature in that it contains the original data. Verifying an opaque signature retrieves the original content.

    // Chilkat provides many different ways to load a certificate and private key, such
