Protecting Files With the Oracle Solaris Cryptographic Framework (Task Map)

The Oracle Solaris Cryptographic Framework can help you protect your files. The following task map points to procedures for listing the available algorithms, and for protecting your files cryptographically.

For Instructions
Generate a symmetric key
Generates a random key for use with algorithms that the user specifies.
Generates a key of user-specified length. Optionally, stores the key in a file, a PKCS #11 keystore, or an NSS keystore.
Provide a checksum that ensures the integrity of a file
Verifies that the receiver's copy of a file is identical to the file that was sent.
Protect a file with a message authentication code (MAC)
Verifies to the receiver of your message that you were the sender.
Encrypt a file, and then decrypt the encrypted file
Protects the content of files by encrypting the file. Provides the encryption parameters to decrypt the file.
