CERT_CONTEXT

Windows CE 3.0

This structure contains both the encoded and decoded representations of a certificate. A certificate context returned by one of the functions defined in Wincrypt.h must be freed by calling the CertFreeCertificateContext function. The CertDuplicateCertificateContext function can be called to make a duplicate copy, which also must be freed by calling the CertFreeCertificateContext function.

typedef struct _CERT_CONTEXT {
DWORD dwCertEncodingType;
BYTE* pbCertEncoded;
DWORD cbCertEncoded;
PCERT_INFO pCertInfo;
HCERTSTORE hCertStore;
} CERT_CONTEXT,  *PCERT_CONTEXT;
typedef const CERT_CONTEXT  *PCCERT_CONTEXT;

Members

dwCertEncodingType
Currently, only X509_ASN_ENCODING is used; however, additional encoding types may be added in the future.
pbCertEncoded
Pointer to the encoded certificate.

cbCertEncoded

Size, in bytes, of the encoded certificate.

pCertInfo

Pointer to a structure of certificate information.

hCertStore
