RSA: Implementation of RSA, using the padding schemes of PKCS#1 v2.1.

[ bsd3, codec, cryptography, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

This library implements the RSA encryption and signature algorithms for arbitrarily-sized ByteStrings. While the implementations work, they are not necessarily the fastest ones on the planet. Particularly key generation. The algorithms included are based of RFC 3447, or the Public-Key Cryptography Standard for RSA, version 2.1 (a.k.a, PKCS#1 v2.1).

Include support for using MD5 in the various crypto routines.


Use the binary package for serializing keys.


Use -f <flag> to enable a flag, or -f -<flag> to disable that flag. More info
