(Visual Basic 6.0) Create XML Digital Signature using Certificate on Smart Card

See more ScMinidriver Examples

Demonstrates how to load a certificate located on a smart card or USB token and then use it for creating an XML digital signature such that the cryptographic signing happens on the smart card.

Note: This functionality was introduced in Chilkat v9.5.0.87.

Note: The ScMinidriver functionality is for Windows-only because ScMinidriver DLLs only exist on Windows. In the next version, Chilkat will be releasing a Pkcs11 class to support Linux, MacOSX, and possibly other operating systems.

' You can find a cerficate using any of the following certificate parts:
' "subjectDN" -- The full distinguished name of the cert.
' "subjectDN_withTags" -- Same as above, but in a format that includes the subject part tags, such as the "CN=" in "CN=something"
' "subjectCN" -- The common name part (CN) of the certificate's subject.
' "serial" -- The certificate serial number.
' "serial:issuerCN" -- The certificate serial number + the issuer's common name, delimited with a colon char.
' These are the same certificate parts that can be retrieved by listing certificates on the smart card (or USB token).
' See List Certificates on Smart Card Example

' The cert object can now be used to sign or do other cryptographic operations that occur on the smart card / USB token.
' If your application calls PinDeauthenticate or DeleteContext, the cert will no longer be able to sign on the smart card
' because the smart card ScMinidriver session will no longer be authenticated or deleted.
