You use the Internet Config SDK, I would recommend via the UInternetConfig unit included with PowerPlant which would make that pretty easy:

ICMapEntry entry;
ICError err = UInternetConfig::PP_ICMapFilename("\ptest.html", &entry);

.... and the browser signature is then in entry.file_creator.

Note that whatever it is you want to do with this signature, there probably are more elegant ways to accomplish it using  Internet Config. Check out the documentation at
