InstallELAMCertificateInfo function

Installs the certificate information specified in the resource file, which is linked into the ELAM driver at build time. This API is used by anti-malware vendors to launch the anti-malware software's user-mode service as protected. For more information, see Protecting Anti-Malware Services.

Syntax

BOOL InstallELAMCertificateInfo(
  HANDLE ELAMFile
);

Parameters

ELAMFile

A handle to an ELAM driver file which contains the resource file with the certificate information. The handle to the ELAM driver file must be opened for read access only and must not be shared for write access.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is TRUE.

If the function fails, the return value is FALSE. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

Anti-malware vendors can use this API to register their anti-malware user-mode service that needs to be launched as protected. Note that the file handle supplied in the hElamFile parameter must be opened for read access only and must not be shareable for write access.

For more information, see Protecting Anti-Malware Services.

Examples

Code example:

HANDLE FileHandle = NULL;

FileHandle = CreateFile(<Insert Elam driver file name>,
                        FILE_READ_DATA,
                        FILE_SHARE_READ,
                        NULL,
                        OPEN_EXISTING,
                        FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL,
                        NULL
                        );

if (InstallElamCertificateInfo(FileHandle) == FALSE)
{
    Result = GetLastError();
    goto exitFunc;
}
