Windows Cryptographic Next Generation SDK for Windows Vista

Welcome to CNG SDK release Version 1.1. The documentation, code, and tools provided in this release are subject to change, and may be updated in the future.

What’s New in v1.1
This release of the kit incorporates a number of significant changes, including:
  • Reworked sample code. In particular, the symmetric crypto provider sample has been substantially rewritten to make it easier to read and use as a basis for your own providers.
  • There’s a new sample that shows how to call CNG functions from kernel mode.
  • The samples build either as Visual Studio projects, or using the Windows SDK build environment.
  • The documentation has gone through another cycle of editing, based on feedback from early users.
  • The installation procedure now puts some convenient links into the Start menu, making it easier to find the samples, the help file, and the license.


IMPORTANT: This version of the Windows CNG SDK is intended to support development targeting Windows Vista. This release of the Windows CNG SDK is compatible with the RTM versions of Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005.

This download contains CNG SDK content only. The Windows CNG SDK includes content for application development with the CNG APIs in Windows Vista.

Documentation: The Windows CNG SDK documentation contains API reference topics; task-based, how-to documentation; and feature overviews to help you develop applications using CNG APIs. Search, the Index, the Table of Contents, and the navigational topics in the documentation viewer are all available to help you locate the topics you need.

Code: The Windows CNG SDK provides header files, libraries, and source code in the C/C++ language. All CNG SDK source code is installed to the "Program Files\Microsoft CNG Development Kit" directory.

Tools and Build Environments: In order to build CNG sample applications, you will need the Windows SDK that includes more than 100 GUI and command-line tools to aid in the development of native (Win32) systems for the Windows platform.
