Explanation

CryptGenRandom

CryptGetKeyParam

CryptGetUserKey

CryptImportKey

CryptSetKeyParam

Generates a block of cryptographically random data, with a specified length.

Retrieves the value of a specific parameter from a key referenced by the Key handle.

Gets a Key handle from a security context—hence, CSP handle—on one of the two default key pairs a user has: one for key exchange and one for signature purposes.

Imports a key from a key BLOB into the key database of a specified CSP. Since this is the reverse process of CryptExportKey, the key used in the import must be related to the key used to create the key BLOB.

Sets the value of a specific parameter from a key referenced by the Key handle.
