Client Licensor Keys

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Authors may acquire client licensor certificates to publish rights-protected content while they are not connected to the RMS-enabled network. A client licensor certificate has a key pair of 1024-bit RSA keys.

The RMS client uses the client licensor certificate public key when issuing a publishing license to accomplish the following tasks:

  • To encrypt the symmetric content key.

  • To sign publishing licenses that are issued locally while the user is not connected to the network.
