CEnroll object

The CEnroll object represents the Certificate Enrollment Control. It is primarily used when programming in Visual Basic or another Automation language.

The CEnroll object exposes the following interfaces:

Methods

The CEnroll object has these methods.

MethodDescription
acceptFilePKCS7

Accepts and processes a PKCS #7 message containing a certificate, then stores the message to a file.

(Inherited from ICEnroll)
acceptFileResponse

Accepts delivery of the credentials issued in response to an earlier call to createFileRequest, and it places the credentials in the appropriate store.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
acceptPKCS7

Accepts and processes a PKCS #7 message containing a certificate. The PKCS #7 is input as a parameter.

(Inherited from ICEnroll)
AcceptResponse

Accepts delivery of the credentials issued in response to an earlier call to createRequest and places the credentials in the appropriate store.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
addAttributeToRequest

Adds an attribute to the certificate request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
addCertTypeToRequest

Adds a certificate template to a request (used to support the enterprise certification authority (CA)).

(Inherited from ICEnroll2)
addCertTypeToRequestEx

Adds a certificate template (or "certificate type") to a request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
addExtensionToRequest

Adds an extension to the request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
addNameValuePairToRequest

Adds a name-value string pair to the request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
addNameValuePairToSignature

Adds the name and value pair of an attribute to the request. It is up to the CA to interpret the meaning of the name-value pair.

(Inherited from ICEnroll2)
addNameValuePairToSignature

Adds a name-value string pair to the signature.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
binaryToString

Converts a binary data BLOB to a string.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
createFilePFX

Saves the accepted certificate chain and private key in a file in Personal Information Exchange (PFX) format.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
createFilePKCS10

Creates a base64-encoded PKCS #10 certificate request and saves it in a file.

(Inherited from ICEnroll)
createFileRequest

Creates a PKCS #10 certificate request, a PKCS #7 request, or a full Certificate Management over CMS (CMC) request and stores it in a file.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
createPFX

Saves the accepted certificate chain and private key in a PFX format string. The PFX format is also known as PKCS #12.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
createPKCS10

Creates a base64-encoded PKCS #10 certificate request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll)
createRequest

Creates a PKCS #10, PKCS #7, or full CMC format certificate request and stores it in a string.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
EnumAlgs

Retrieves the IDs of cryptographic algorithms in a given algorithm class that are supported by the current CSP.

(Inherited from ICEnroll3)
enumContainers

Retrieves the names of the containers for the cryptographic service provider (CSP) specified by the ProviderName property.

(Inherited from ICEnroll)
enumPendingRequest

Enumerates pending certificate requests and retrieves a specified property from each.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)

Retrieves the names of the available CSPs specified by the ProviderType property.

(Inherited from ICEnroll)
freeRequestInfo

Cleans up the stores if an error occurs. Currently not implemented.

(Inherited from ICEnroll)
GetAlgName

Retrieves the name of a cryptographic algorithm given its ID. The values retrieved by this method depend on the current CSP.

(Inherited from ICEnroll3)
getCertFromFileResponse

Retrieves the certificate from a file containing a response from a CA.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
getCertFromPKCS7

Retrieves the certificate, contained in a PKCS #7 message, that was issued in response to a PKCS #10 certificate request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll3)
InstallPKCS7

Processes a certificate or chain of certificates, placing them into the appropriate certificate stores. This method differs from the acceptPKCS7 method in that InstallPKCS7 does not receive a request certificate.

(Inherited from ICEnroll3)
InstallPKCS7Ex

The same as InstallPKCS7 except that it returns the number of certificates actually installed in local stores.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
removePendingRequest

Removes a pending request from the client's request store.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
Reset

Returns the certificate enrollment control object to its initial state.

(Inherited from ICEnroll3)
resetAttributes

Removes all attributes from the request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
resetExtensions

Removes all extensions from the request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
setPendingRequestInfo

Sets properties for a pending request.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
stringToBinary

Converts an encoded string to a binary data BLOB.

(Inherited from ICEnroll4)
