PKCS7 Constants

pkcs7_encrypt

Encrypt an S/MIME message

Syntax

Function pkcs7_encrypt (infile As String, outfile As String, recipcerts, [headers], [flags]) As Boolean

pkcs7_encrypt() takes the contents of the file named infile and encrypts them using an RC2 40-bit cipher so that they can only be read by the intended recipients specified by recipcerts, which is either a lone X.509 certificate, or an array of X.509 certificates. headers is an array of headers that will be prepended to the data after it has been encrypted. flags can be used to specify options that affect the encoding process - see PKCS7 constants. headers can be either an associative array keyed by header name, or an indexed array, where each element contains a single header line.

Example
Set headers = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
headers.Add "Subject", "Secret message!"

ssl.pkcs7_encrypt "message.txt", "message.enc.txt", Array("file://ca-cert.pem"), headers
