This function acquires the bit length of public/private keys from a public key BLOB.
DWORD WINAPI CertGetPublicKeyLength( DWORD dwCertEncodingType, PCERT_PUBLIC_KEY_INFO pPublicKey );
- [in] Specifies the encoding type used. Currently, only X509_ASN_ENCODING is used; however, additional encoding types may be added in the future.
- [in] Pointer to the public key BLOB containing the keys for which the length is being retrieved.
Returns the length of the public/private keys in bits. If unable to determine the key's length, returns zero.
For extended error information, call the GetLastError function.
The desktop platform supports the PKCS_7_ASN_ENCODING flag, but Windows CE does not. Windows CE ignores the flag when it is specified.
