RSA_public_encrypt(3) OpenSSL RSA_public_encrypt(3)## NAME

RSA_public_encrypt, RSA_private_decrypt - RSA public key cryptography## SYNOPSIS

#include <openssl/rsa.h> int RSA_public_encrypt(int flen, unsigned char *from, unsigned char *to, RSA *rsa, int padding); int RSA_private_decrypt(int flen, unsigned char *from, unsigned char *to, RSA *rsa, int padding);## DESCRIPTION

RSA_public_encrypt()encrypts theflenbytes atfrom(usually a session key) using the public keyrsaand stores the ciphertext into.tomust point to RSA_size(rsa) bytes of memory.paddingdenotes one of the following modes: RSA_PKCS1_PADDING PKCS #1 v1.5 padding. This currently is the most widely used mode. RSA_PKCS1_OAEP_PADDING EME-OAEP as defined in PKCS #1 v2.0 with SHA-1, MGF1 and an empty encoding parameter. This mode is recommended for all new applications. RSA_SSLV23_PADDING PKCS #1 v1.5 padding with an SSL-specific modification that denotes that the server is SSL3 capable. RSA_NO_PADDING Raw RSA encryption. This mode shouldonlybe used to implement cryptographically sound padding modes in the application code. Encrypting user data directly with RSA is insecure.flenmust be less than RSA_size(rsa) - 11 for the PKCS #1 v1.5 based padding modes, less than RSA_size(rsa) - 41 for RSA_PKCS1_OAEP_PADDING and exactly RSA_size(rsa) for RSA_NO_PADDING. The random number generator must be seeded prior to callingRSA_public_encrypt().RSA_private_decrypt()decrypts theflenbytes atfromusing the private keyrsaand stores the plaintext into.tomust point to a memory section large enough to hold the decrypted data (which is smaller than RSA_size(rsa)).paddingis the padding mode that was used to encrypt the data.## RETURN VALUES

RSA_public_encrypt()returns the size of the encrypted data (i.e., RSA_size(rsa)).RSA_private_decrypt()returns the size of the recovered plaintext. On error, -1 is returned; the error codes can be obtained byERR_get_error(3).## CONFORMING TO
