What is capicom.dll?

Part of CAPICOM Module by Microsoft

What is it?

CAPICOM is a discontinued ActiveX control created by Microsoft to help expose a select set of Microsoft Cryptographic Application Programming Interface (CryptoAPI) functions through Microsoft Component Object Model (COM). It was intended to enable every environment that supports ActiveX to use Microsoft Cryptographic technologies, including web pages that are opened with Microsoft Internet Explorer or any other web browser that supports ActiveX.
Description of capicom.dll from Microsoft
CAPICOM can be used to digitally sign data, inspect, verify and display their digital signature and/or digital certificate, add or remove certificates to or from the certificate stores, and finally, to encrypt or decrypt data. CAPICOM is available for use in the following operating systems: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000. Instead, use the .NET Framework to implement security features.

How is capicom.dll loaded?

Safe for scripting control - capicom.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {17E3A1C3-EA8A-4970-AF29-7F54610B1D4C} with and identifier of CLSID\{17E3A1C3-EA8A-4970-AF29-7F54610B1D4C}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95801-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. Safe for scripting is a Windows policy that disables the Internet Explorer security prompt for Windows Installer scripts. It allows Web-based programs to install software on the computer without notifying the user. By default, when a script hosted by an Internet browser tries to install a program on the system, the system warns users and allows them to select or refuse the installation. This setting suppresses the warning and allows the installation to proceed.
Safe for initializing control - capicom.dll has a CLSID (globally unique identifier) of {17E3A1C3-EA8A-4970-AF29-7F54610B1D4C} with and identifier of CLSID\{17E3A1C3-EA8A-4970-AF29-7F54610B1D4C}\Implemented Categories\{7DD95802-9882-11CF-9FA9-00AA006C42C4}. When a program is initialized, it can receive data from another program for initializing its state. This is a potential security hazard because the data could come from an untrusted source. Programs that guarantee no security breach regardless of the data source are considered safe for initialization and are registered as such.
