Returns:

    evp_pkey object with mapping to EVP_PKEY in openssl

Usage:

    --create rsa public key
      pubkey = new({alg='rsa',n=...,e=...}
    --create new rsa
      rsa = new({alg='rsa',n=...,q=...,e=...,...}

Class evp_pkey

openssl.evp_pkey object
evp_pkey:export ([support='pem'[, raw=false[, passphrase]]])

  • passphrase string if given, export key will encrypt with des-cbc-ede, only need when export private key (optional)

Returns:

    string
evp_pkey:parse ()
get key details as table

Returns:

    table infos with key bits,pkey,type, pkey may be rsa,dh,dsa, show as table with factor hex encoded bignum
evp_pkey:encrypt (data, string)
encrypt message with public key encrypt length of message must not longer than key size, if shorter will do padding,currently supports 6 padding modes. They are: pkcs1, sslv23, no, oaep, x931, pss.
