SIGNER_CERT structure

The SIGNER_CERT structure specifies a certificate used to sign a document. The certificate can be stored in a Software Publisher Certificate (SPC) file or in a certificate store.

Note  This structure is not defined in any header file. To use this structure, you must define it yourself as shown in this topic.

Syntax


typedef struct _SIGNER_CERT {
  DWORD cbSize;
  DWORD dwCertChoice;
  union {
    LPCWSTR                pwszSpcFile;
    SIGNER_CERT_STORE_INFO *pCertStoreInfo;
    SIGNER_SPC_CHAIN_INFO  *pSpcChainInfo;
  };
  HWND  hwnd;
} SIGNER_CERT, *PSIGNER_CERT;

Members

cbSize

The size, in bytes, of the structure.

dwCertChoice

Specifies how the certificate is stored. This member can be one or more of the following values.

ValueMeaning
SIGNER_CERT_SPC_FILE
1

The certificate is stored in an SPC file. The pwszSpcFile member contains the path and file name of the SPC file.

SIGNER_CERT_STORE
2

The certificate is stored in a certificate store. The pCertStoreInfo member contains a pointer to a SIGNER_CERT_STORE_INFO structure that specifies the certificate store in which the certificate is stored.

SIGNER_CERT_SPC_CHAIN
3

The certificate is stored in an SPC file and is associated with a certificate chain. The pSpcChainInfo member contains a pointer to a SIGNER_SPC_CHAIN_INFO structure that contains the chain information for the certificate.

 

pwszSpcFile

A pointer to a null-terminated Unicode string that contains the path and file name of the SPC file in which the certificate is stored. This member is only used if the dwCertChoice member contains SIGNER_CERT_SPC_FILE.

pCertStoreInfo

A pointer to a SIGNER_CERT_STORE_INFO structure that specifies the certificate store in which the certificate is stored. This member is only used if the dwCertChoice member contains SIGNER_CERT_STORE.

pSpcChainInfo

A pointer to a SIGNER_SPC_CHAIN_INFO structure that contains the chain information for the certificate. This member is only used if the dwCertChoice member contains SIGNER_CERT_SPC_CHAIN.
