    security library for Windows Mobile?

    Hello everyone,


    Are there any native security library for Windows Mobile 2003 provided by Microsoft, providing DES, AES and SSL?


    thanks in advance,

    Erm, read all about it on MSDN and find out for yourself?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    I find that Microsoft Enhanced Cryptographic Provider is the implementation of various algorithms, like DES/AES. And we can access it through interface CryptAcquireContext. I am not sure whether I am correct after reading MSDN documents. I am new to this subject. Any comments?


    regards,
    George

    Salem, I thought the point of George2's question was to find out for himself. After all, he wouldn't have asked it if he already knew the answer

    On that note, I to would like to find out about this.

    The point is, where do you stop?

    It's just as useless a question as posting code with the question "will this compile?", to which the answer is why don't you try and compile it and find out for yourself.

    Will this function work?
    Will this API work?
    Of course they'll work if you've got the nouse to read the manual properly and spend some effort and time to understand what is going on.

    Now sure I could spend a whole bunch of time reading MSDN and actually working out "an answer", to whether or not I could do it. But that isn't going to be enough to tell whether george2 would be able to do it or not.

    By the time you reach this level, you should be able to answer your own basic research questions for yourself.

    Now if george2 (or you) want to post some actual code along with actual observations, then someone might actually be able to offer specific advice. Until then, you (both) need to do the research, and if necessary make all the important learning "mistakes" along the way.
