Hi there,
I need to get a public key from a PKI-machine to verify digital signatures.
I've tried it with PKCS#11 but with no Success.

Is there any other way to obtain a public key from PKI for verifying digital signature?

Thansk in advance

You may find something of interest on these pages:

Baltimore KeyTools is only avaiable in C++ and Java according to the site but you still may be able too port accross some of the needed code to delphi.

Cheers,

Alan

Thanks for the quick answer, but I can't or I'm not able to use these Components. My C/C++ knowledge is low and what I've seen from the GInt site is that there is no way to retrieve/obtain a Public key or a certificate from a PKI machine.
Which way would you go, which components would yo use, how would you do that, if you had the order to code an Application that must provide digital signing and verifying via a pki machine??
Just for info: Aside the PKI machine there is a way to obtain the certs via lDAP or HTTP.
I hope this helps so that you can help me.

Thanks in advance
