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). This cryptographic module also maintains FIPS 140-2 validation compliance (according to FIPS 140-2 PUB Implementation Guidance G.5) on Microsoft Windows 8, Microsoft Windows 8 Pro, and Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Datacenter.
