NAME

Tspi_Context_RegisterKey - register a key in the TSS Persistent Storage database  

SYNOPSIS

#include <tss/platform.h>
#include <tss/tcpa_defines.h>
#include <tss/tcpa_typedef.h>
#include <tss/tcpa_struct.h>
#include <tss/tss_typedef.h>
#include <tss/tss_structs.h>
#include <tss/tspi.h>

TSS_RESULT Tspi_Context_RegisterKey(TSS_HCONTEXT hContext,                    TSS_HKEY hKey,
                                    TSS_FLAG     persistentStorageType,       TSS_UUID uuidKey,
                                    TSS_FLAG     persistentStorageTypeParent, TSS_UUID uuidParentKey); 

 

DESCRIPTION

Tspi_Context_RegisterKey is the API that registers a key with the TSS Persistent Storage database so that it can be loaded as necessary. It also includes all information required for loading the key, as well as information about its parent key.

 

PARAMETERS

 

hContext

The hContext parameter is the handle of the context object.  

hKey

The hKey parameter is the handle of the key object addressing the key to be registered.  

persistentStorageType

The persistentStorageType parameter indicates the persistent storage the key is registered in.  

uuidKey

The uuidKey parameter is the UUID by which the key is registered in persistent storage.  

persistentStorageTypeParent

The persistentStorageTypeParent parameter indicates the persistent storage that the parent key is registered in.  

uuidParentKey

The uuidParentKey parameter is the UUID by which the parent key is registered in persistent storage.

 

RETURN CODES

Tspi_Context_RegisterKey returns TSS_SUCCESS on success, otherwise one of the following values is returned:

TSS_E_INVALID_HANDLE
hContext is not a valid handle.

TSS_E_PS_KEY_NOTFOUND
The key cannot be found in the persistent storage database.

TSS_E_INTERNAL_ERROR
An internal SW error has been detected.

TSS_E_BAD_PARAMETER
One or more parameters is bad.

 

EXAMPLE

#include <trousers/tss.h>

int
main(void)
{
        TSS_FLAGS       initFlags = ...;
        TSS_HKEY        hKey, hSRK;
        TSS_UUID        keyUUID = {...};

        // Create a TSP handle
        result = Tspi_Context_Create(&hContext);
        if (result != TSS_SUCCESS)
                Error_Path();

        // Connect to the TCSD
        result = Tspi_Context_Connect(hContext, GLOBALSERVER);
        if (result != TSS_SUCCESS)
                Error_Path();

        // Create the Key Object
        result = Tspi_Context_CreateObject(hContext,
                                TSS_OBJECT_TYPE_RSAKEY,
                                initFlags, &hKey);
        if (result != TSS_SUCCESS)
                Error_Path();

        // Load parent Key by UUID
        result = Tspi_Context_LoadKeyByUUID(hContext, TSS_PS_TYPE_SYSTEM,
                                                SRK_UUID, &hSRK);
        if (result != TSS_SUCCESS)
                Error_Path();

        // Do policy/secret handling here

        result = Tspi_Key_CreateKey(hKey, hSRK, 0);
        if (result != TSS_SUCCESS)
                Error_Path();

        // Register the Key in System PS (on the TCSD's platform)
        result = Tspi_Context_RegisterKey(hContext, hKey, TSS_PS_TYPE_SYSTEM,
                                        keyUUID, TSS_PS_TYPE_SYSTEM,
                                        SRK_UUID);
        if (result != TSS_SUCCESS)
                Error_Path();

        /* ...
         *
         * Use the key as needed, exiting the program if necessary, reloading
         * the key using Tspi_Context_LoadKeyByUUID() after each restart. Once
         * the key is no longer useful, unregister it from system PS as part
         * of clean up.
         */

        // Unregister the Key
        result = Tspi_Context_UnregisterKey(hContext, TSS_PS_TYPE_SYSTEM,
                                        migratableSignUUID, &hKey);
        if (result != TSS_SUCCESS)
                Error_Path();

        // exit, discarding hKey
}
