How to digitally sign a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP)

Q: How to digitally sign a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP)

Hi,

We are in the process of developing a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP) and a Key Storage Provider (KSP) which are implemented as Dynamic-link libraries (.dll). The final product needs to be digitally signed in order for Windows to accept and use our implementations.

I read on MSDN that developers used to send an email to [email protected] and request that Microsoft do the signing. I sent an email to them, requesting more information about the process, but haven't received any feedback in about three months.

I figured an alternative would be to buy a "Code Signing certificate for Microsoft Authenticode" from a trusted CA, such as Symantec, and use that to sign the appropriate files ourselves. Would this be possible? I am just not sure whether it is permitted that security products, such as CSPs and KSPs, can be signed by the developers themselves and whether Microsoft wants to look at the implementations first.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: How to digitally sign a Cryptographic Service Provider (CSP)

A search seems to indicate that email address is still correct. There is also indications you must download a Cryptographic Provider Development Kit

Hopefully someone with hands on experience will also respond.

Hi and welcome

Well paranoid doesnt mean you are wrong, but unless you work for the NSA and have money to throw at something you have to consider that even if signed its still sent in the clear. Passwords, credit card numbers, etc. digitally singed means they know it comes from you. If I were concerned (and am) I use pgp to encrypt. that way it is both not in the clear and if the person the other end has your public key knows it came from you

Hope this helps

...you'll have a problem with all programs that need UAC elevation

Firstly, immediately after booting with absolutely no errors, UAC classifies virtually every program that needs elevated rights in order to run as from Unknown Publisher, and pops up the famous 'Allow/Cancel an unidentified program wants access to your computer'. (after clicking on allow, though, the intended-to-run program runs just fine)

Then, after a while, UAC doesn't start at all and all that shows (for the same class of programs) is the 'The service cannot accept control messages at this time' error message

You may wonder why I posted this thread :) well...

Hi,

One of our computer having a problem, a Pentium 4 with a Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 2.

It has many issues, the source of which seems to be that the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service doesn't start.

As a consequence Windows Update, System Information, System Restore, User & Accounts control panel, printers, Windows Firewall, ActiveX, and many other things all don't work.

I can't install anything. And when I go into Device Manager, Services, or other things like that, I can't view the properties of any items.

Almost all services don't work, maybe they depend on Remote Procedure Call too?

If I go into Services (only Standard view works), I can see that Remote Procedure Call is set as "Automatic" startup type, but is not "Started" at all.

Any attempt to start it manually results in the error "Could not start the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service on Local Computer. Error 5: Access is Denied".

Hello All,

So for the past few hours I have been trying to create an account on my computer and have not been able to log onto it. It doesn't matter if I create a local User, Admin, or use a Microsoft account (Admin or not). I've tried restarting my computer. Tried turning it off and letting it sit for a while. Nothing seems to be working. I also haven't been able to find any information the particular problem that is going on.

I HAVE already found and tried the tutorial located on this site that Brink wrote (User Profile Service failed the sign-in - Fix in Windows 8) but it does not seem to apply to my situation. There are no registry entries that are associated with any profile I've created (besides my usual account that I'm currently on). In fact, there aren't even folders in the C:\Users directory for any of the accounts I've tried to create (during or after creation and deletion).

It seems to be the same issue dant was having (The User Profile Service failed the sign-in.) but I am not sure since there isn't much on that thread. Anybody have any ideas? I have been searching for hours and my Google-Fu is not finding anything.

A:User Profile Service service failed to sign-in

Hello Meishe, and welcome to Eight Forums.

When you add/create a new user account, it's user profile is not created until the first time you sign in to it. Since you are unable to sign in to it, this would be why you do not have any registry keys and no "C:\Users\(user-name)" folder for the account yet.

Are you getting this user profile error when you sign in to any other user account on the computer?

For now, you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before you had this issue may be able to help.

Hope this helps for now,

Hi,

I want to use the IPTV technology to transmit some channels. Therefore I consider to become full service provider. For my purpose I see possibilities in the market.

However I am not computer engineer, so, it is quite difficult to make some more progress

Can someone suggest me something about this, maybe there are companies that can help a lot, like selling a complete servers for service providers.

Second question is can I transmit by using servers about 5Mbps to downloaders ( the users should not notice it too much in the sense they should have enough bandwidth for other things , e.g. when someone has 30 Mbps for downloading) .
 

A:Service Provider

You want to look at companies that sell dedicated servers. Basically, you rent the server, put whatever applications you want on it, and they provide the data center and Tier I Internet connection. Optionally, you can go with a colocation provider. It's very similar, except you provide the servers, which you put in a partial rack (meaning you're buying rackmount servers) or cage at their data center. This does require you to be close to the data center, since they won't touch your servers for any reason unless you pay them (it's know as "remote hands"), and then only to reset, power cycle, or plug/unplug something. If you rent a server, it data center could be located anywhere in the world since you will only access it remotely.

The big cost is going to be bandwidth. IPTV is a very bandwidth-intensive service, and in either case, you pay for every data packet received or transmitted from the server. The total bandwidth required is equal the number of concurrent downloaders. If ten people are downloading at 5Mbps, you are feeding 50Mbps. If a hundred people are downloading at 5Mbps, you are feeding at 500Mbps.

The ISP is adamant that this is OUR problem. I will be happy to provide more details, but I am not a techie and don't know where to start. Can anyone please help?? My thought is that the modem is not working properly...
 
Thanks!

A:I have No Internet Service though my Provider says I do

Sure does sound like a modem problem. 
 
Have you tried a long power cycle (unplug the modem for 30 minutes, then plug it back in) or a hard reset (see the modem manual)?  Do you own the modem or is it provided by the ISP?  If the ISP owns the modem, then insist they replace it.

I'm helping a friend who lives in a rural area about a hundred miles outside of St. Louis, Missouri. He's looking for an ISP that can provide a phone number that's not long-distance. His area code is 636 and his exchange is 338. Does anyone know of a message board that deals with this situation?

I know I have heard of small companies that resell Internet access via antenna's. I would think they have T-1 connected and broadcast to users that have a compatible antennae and some proper code to allow access.

Do any of you know what this technology is called?

I have a friend who cannot get anything high speed, but does have neighbors to share the cost.

Thnks

Slaving my HD to another PC and using PC-cillin Internet Security 2007, I just found I had 7 files infected by 4 viruses, all of which were successfully quarantined. Now and for the last few weeks I've been losing my Internet connection after 10 or 15 minutes with IE7 messages like "Windows has discovered a problem with the following layered service provider (LSP): MS Netbios. Would you like Windows to remove this LSP?" After removing it and rebooting, the same or a host of similar connection problems eventually occur all over again. I've attached my HJT file, and hope someone can shed some light on this for me. Thank you in advance.

A:Disconnection by Layered Service provider(?)

I just found 7 files infected by 4 viruses (with my HD slaved to another PC and using PC-cillin Internet Security 2007), all of which were successfully quarantined.

Would you like Windows to remove this LSP?" After removing it and rebooting, the same or a host of similar connection problems eventually occur all over again.

Hi All,
Can somebody please advise why Limelight Networks would be continuously uploading data to my PC?
So far, the company has used nearly 2 Gb of my bandwidth, and there doesn't appear to be anything to show for it.
This has only been occuring since my update to Windows 10 from Win 7 Ultimate.
Thanks.

Hi,TL;DR;As much as I love Lenovo computers, and use them for professional use for the past 5-6 years and buy them for all my employees, I won?t ever buy a Lenovo in Israel (and of course wont suggest it anymore) as long as the service provider stays "CPM computer services" , as they are simply useless, and I actually lost money because of their inability to give service.The longer version:I want to make a complaint about your Israel warranty service provider  - CPM computer services.I bought a 520S ideapad (with i7 processor) from an official local supplier (KSP israel) which I'm familiar with and trust,after a few weeks the laptop stopped booting and I couldn't start it (happens, I know, I didn?t panic..)As the computer was a few weeks old I've contacted the official service provider CPM which picked up the computer after a few days, and sent me an email that the computer was received.Since that moment I haven't heard from them for almost a month, until I contacted them just to hear they are still "working on it"I've been calling them each week since then, to find out they don?t know what is the problem - so finally I've convinced them to supply me a new computer, so they offered me a new idea pad with a worse spec than the one I had, and couldn't understand why I rejected their "generous" offer.After a week or so, they decided to give me a full refund, which I'm still waiting for after another month (3'rd month without a computer).the bo...
