Description
Kernel Mode Cryptographic Primitives Library (cng.sys) runs as a kernel mode export driver, and provides cryptographic services, through their documented interfaces, to Windows kernel components. It supports several cryptographic algorithms accessible via a FIPS function table request IRP (I/O request packet).
