Remarks

To use a named curve, call BCryptOpenAlgorithmProvider using either the BCRYPT_ECDSA_ALGORITHM or the BCRYPT_ECDH_ALGORITHM as the algorithm ID. Then, call BCryptSetProperty and set the BCRYPT_ECC_CURVE_NAME property to one of the above curves or any named curves registered on the computer as shown by the certutil -displaytEccCurve command.
