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_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.

                           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
       }
