|Applies To||RSA ClearTrust 5.5 Entitlements Server (EServer)|
Microsoft Windows 2000 Server SP4
|Issue||How to access the RSA ClearTrust Admin API from Microsoft .NET|
|Cause||RSA ClearTrust Admin API facilities are published for both Java and C languages. Also, COM/DCOM functionality is available via a supplied J-Integra to allow Active Server Pages (ASP) or other COM programs to use the RSA ClearTrust API. No direct support for .NET is supplied.|
|Resolution||Programmers have a variety of options available to them to access the ClearTrust Admin API, each option will offer costs and benefits:|
1. Access via unmanaged code is available by directly accessing the C API from within the .NET code. NOTE: The C language Administrative API is deprecated, and may be removed in a future release.
2. Access the 'C' API through the existing COM/DCOM J-Integra bridge. NOTE: The C language Administrative API is deprecated, and may be removed in a future release.
3. Access the Java API through 3rd-party Java-.NET bridges such as JNBridgePro.
Access to the Runtime API can be achieved by making use of the RSA Security provided Support for .NET and C# with RSA ClearTrust API facilities.
