    I created a simple program to test the ideas of encrypting .. and I am referring to the C API found in the Certificate, Key, and Trust Services Reference. I am trying to use SecKeyEncrypt, but I do not know how to access the function or even how to use it..

    would I call SecKeyEncrypt(param1, param2, param3, ... param6); ?

    Is SecKeyEncrypt even a function?
    What exactly is a SecKeyRef?

    What am I overlooking?

    I must have been looking in the wrong place, however, I still do not understand the concept of encryption. I guess tomorrow I will read up on it.

    Thank you for the link.
