Introduction

This article describes an available hotfix that adds support for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Special Publication (SP) 800-73-3 specification in Windows 7. This hotfix improves features for smart card–related Plug and Play and Personal Identity Verification (PIV) standards from the NIST. This hotfix supports the Key History object that is described in section 3.2.7 of the NIST SP 800-73-3 Part1 specification. The Key History object does not support the following in this hotfix:

  • Discontinued keys that have off-card certificates.

  • Key archival by using the smart card. Therefore, the following operations are not available:

    • Imports of key material to a discontinued key container.

    • Imports of certificates for a key in a discontinued key container.

    • Requests for the card to generate a key pair for a discontinued key container.

    • Changes to the Key History object



Notes

  • Currently, Windows 7 only supports the capabilities of NIST SP 800-73-2 for PIV smart cards.

  • According to NIST SP 800-73-3 Part1, the container name changes of a Key Management key is archived to a discontinued container. If a smart card was previously used on a computer, the smart card must be inserted into the computer before the smart card tries to use the key. This allows for the computer to recognize the new container name and find the certificate. If you do not insert the smart card, you will be unable to successfully select the certificate from a selection dialog box.

Windows 7 file information notes Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:

    Version

    Product

    Milestone

    Service branch

    6.1.760
    0.16xxx

    Windows 7

    RTM

    GDR

    6.1.760
    1.22xxx

    Windows 7

    SP1

    LDR

  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.

  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows 7" section. MUM and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are critical to maintaining the state of the updated component. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
