PARAMETERS

TPHandle (input) 

The handle that describes the certification authority module used to perform this function.

PreferredAuthority (input/optional)
  

A CSSM_TP_AUTHORITY_ID structure containing either a certificate that identifies the Authority process, or a network address directly or indirectly identifying the location of the authority. If the input is NULL, the module can assume a default authority location. If a default authority can not be assumed, the request can not be initiated and the operation fails.

FormType (input) 

Indicates the type of form being requested.

BlankForm (output)
  

A CSSM_DATA structure containing the requested form. The caller must have knowledge of the structure of the form based on FormType.

DESCRIPTION
