Cryptography Next Generation (CNG) was first introduced with Windows Vista. Cryptography next generation is extensible at several levels thus enhancing administrators to update, create and use custom cryptography algorithms in AD CS, IP Sec and SSL. Cryptography next generation is an encryption Application Program Interface (API) which has been found out by Microsoft, in order to replace CryptoAPI in order to enable developers to add encoding, encryption and authentication to the windows based application that they develop. Cryptography next generation supports several algorithms in order to offer security to its users. This paper studies in detail the various algorithms supported by CNG of Windows Vista.
