How to: Sign Messages by One Signer

Creates a CMS/PKCS #7 signed message. The message is signed by a single signer.

How to: Sign a Message by Multiple Signers

Creates a CMS/PKCS #7 signed message. The message is signed by multiple signers.

How to: Countersign a Message

Creates a CMS/PKCS #7 signed message. The message is signed by a single signer. That signature is then countersigned by two other signers.

How to: Envelope a Message for One Recipient

Creates a CMS/PKCS #7 enveloped message. The message is encrypted for a single recipient.

How to: Envelope a Message for Multiple Recipients

Creates a CMS/PKCS #7 enveloped message. The message is encrypted for multiple recipients.

How to: Sign and Envelop a Message

Creates a CMS/PKCS #7 enveloped signed message. The message is first signed by a single signer and is then encrypted for a single recipient.
