Provider for Microsoft Cryptography API: Next Generation (CNG)

Microsoft Cryptography API: Next Generation (CNG) is an application programming interface that lets application developers add authentication, encoding, and encryption to Windows-based applications. CNG also lets you perform crypto operations with tools such as Windows signtool through CNG providers installed on the system. Cloud KMS offers a provider that conforms to this standard, in order to interoperate with existing applications that leverage the CNG API.

The provider is managed as an open source project on GitHub, and licensed under the Apache 2.0 license. Release binaries downloaded from the GitHub releases page are covered by the Google Cloud Terms of Service, and support is available from Cloud Customer Care.
