Embodiment
Multi-chip standalone
Description
The cryptographic module, bcryptprimitives.dll, encapsulates several different cryptographic algorithms in an easy-to-use cryptographic module accessible via the Microsoft CNG (Cryptography, Next Generation) API. It can be dynamically linked into applications by software developers to permit the use of general-purpose FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptography.
