(Excel) PKCS11 Initialize
See more PKCS11 Examples
The first thing to do to interact with a smart card or USB security token using PKCS11 is to call Initialize. It loads the vendors DLL/shared library and initializes the Cryptoki library. (The Cryptoki library is the DLL/shared lib provided by the smart card vendor.)
Note: This example requires Chilkat v126.96.36.199 or later.
' This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked. ' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code. ' Note: Chilkat's PKCS11 implementation runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and other supported operating systems. Dim pkcs11 As Chilkat.Pkcs11 Set pkcs11 = Chilkat.NewPkcs11 ' You'll need to know in advance the name and possibly the full path to the smart card vendor's shared library. ' On Windows systems it is a .dll. On Linux it is a .so. On Mac OS X it will be a .dylib. ' On Windows, if you set the SharedLibPath equal to just the name of the DLL, then it is assumed to be located in the Windows system directory ' which contains dynamic-link libraries and drivers. The Windows system directory is typically C:\Windows\System32 ' In this example we will pass just the name of the DLL because it is located in C:\Windows\System32. ' On non-Windows systems you should specify the full path to the shared lib. ' Also use the full path on Windows systems where the smart card vendor's DLL does not install to C:\Windows\System32. pkcs11.SharedLibPath = "aetpkss1.dll" success = pkcs11.Initialize() If (success = False) Then Debug.Print pkcs11.LastErrorText Else Debug.Print "PKCS11 successfully initialized." End If
