Cryptography (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

Cryptography in Windows CE includes the Cryptography API set (CryptoAPI), which provides services that enable application developers to add encryption and decryption of data. Application developers can use CryptoAPI without knowing details of the underlying implementation, in much the same way as they can use a graphics library without knowing anything about the particular graphics hardware settings. CryptoAPI works with a number of Cryptographic Service Providers that perform the actual cryptographic functions.

CryptoAPI supports both public key infrastructure (PKI) and symmetric key cryptography.
