Thank you for contacting us.

There is a sample called "SecureMail" available in the distribution. It shows all the security operations - encryption, decryption, signing and verifying of mail messages.

Dear Alexander,

I tried that solution but it required certificate(.cer) file and its corresponding private key.

Could you please let me know from where i get these files, i also tried PGPKeysDemo solution but its only generating key rings.

Please advise.

Regards,
Ravi

There are 2 technologies used to secure e-mail messages: S/MIME (based on X.509 certificates) and PGP/MIME (based on PGP keys). Both technologies are supported by MIMEBlackbox and both are shown in the SecureMail sample.

To decrypt a S/MIME message, it's needed to provide the X.509 certificate (usually stored in a CER/PEM/PFX file) used to encrypt the message and the corresponding private key (it can be stored separately or in the same PEM/PFX file).

To decrypt a PGP/MIME message, it's needed to provide the keyring which contains the public key used to encrypt the message and the corresponding secret key.

Dear Alexander,

Thanks for the details, but my question was:

Just like key rings there is a PGPKeyDemo solution to generate key rings(public and secure) similarly is there any other solution to generate certificate(.cer) file and its corresponding private key so that i can use to encrypt and decrypt emails.

Regards,
Ravi

You didn't say that you want to generate certificates. Usualy, certificates are delivered by Certificate Authority companies, such as VeriSign.

But if you want to generate your own, self-signed certificates, there are PKIBlackbox\Certificates and PKIBlackbox\CertificatesWithGenerator samples available in the distribution.

Also, please take a look at the follwing how-to article: https://www.eldos.com/documentation/sb...igned.html
