Multi-Chip Stand Alone
The Microsoft Windows Cryptographic Primitives Library is a general purpose, software-based, cryptographic module. The primitive provider functionality is offered through one cryptographic module, BCRYPT.DLL (version 7.00.2883), subject to FIPS 140-2 validation. BCRYPT.DLL provides cryptographic services, through its documented interfaces, to Windows Embedded Compact 7 components and applications running on Windows Embedded Compact 7.
Tested Configuration(s)
  • Windows Embedded Compact 7 (ARMv5) running on a Freescale i.MX27 Development Kit (single-user mode)
