(Node.js) Create and Verify an Opaque PKCS7/CMS Signature

Demonstrates how to create a PKCS7 opaque signature, and also how to verify an opaque signature. An opaque signature is different than a detached PKCS7 signature in that it contains the original data. Verifying an opaque signature retrieves the original content.

Install Chilkat for Node.js using npm at

Chilkat npm packages for Node.js and Electron
on Windows, Linux, MacOSX, and ARM

Supports Node.js 4.*, 5.*, 6.*, 7.*, 8.*, and Electron 1.6.* and 1.7.*

    //  This example requires the Chilkat Crypt API to have been previously unlocked.
    //  See Unlock Chilkat Crypt for sample code.

    var crypt = new chilkat.Crypt2();

    //  A certificate and private key is needed to create a signature.
    //  Chilkat provides many different ways to load a certificate and private key, such
    //  as from a PFX/.p12, Java keystore, JWK, Windows registry-based certificate stores, and other sources.
    //  This example will load the certificate from a .crt and the private key from a .key file

    var cert = new chilkat.Cert();
    //  The LoadFromFile method will automatically detect the format and load it.
    var success = cert.LoadFromFile("qa_data/certs/test_12345678a.cer");

        console.log(cert.LastErrorText);

    //  Our private key is in an encrypted PKCS8 format.
    //  If you don't know the format of your key, but you do know it's encrypted,
    //  and requires a password, then just call any of the Chilkat methods that load
    //  a private key w/ a password argument.  Chilkat will auto-detect the format
    //  and load it correctly even if it's not the format indicated by the method name..
    var privKey = new chilkat.PrivateKey();

    //  Tell it to use the cert and private key we've loaded.

    var originalData = "This is the string to be signed.";

    //  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    //  Now let's verify the signature and retrieve the original data.
    //  We'll use a new Crypt2 object to keep things completely separate...

    var vCrypt = new chilkat.Crypt2();

    //  We only need the certificate to verify a signature (and extract the data from
    //  an opaque signature).  The public key is always embedded within a certificate.
