Question
How is the SafeGuard LAN Crypt certificate generated?

Answer
The certificate is generated by calling several Microsoft API functions and by the Microsoft Enhanced CSP.

The Password for the .p12 files is generated with an Utimaco random function, combining characters that are available in all languages (A-Z,a-z,0-9,$%&/()=?*+#<>,.:-_) to a length of 12.
