I realize that this is a newsgroup for SDK programmers; however, since there is no security newsgroup for DDK programmers and on the off chance that someone here may know...

I am looking for additional documentation or samples on using the Microsoft Kernel Mode Cryptographic Module (fips.sys). Specifically, what is the IRP and buffers used to obtain a table of function pointers to the cryptographic functions? This is not described in the security policy document.
