DESCRIPTION

The RSA_padding_xxx_xxx() functions are called from the RSA encrypt, decrypt, sign and verify functions. Normally they should not be called from application programs.

However, they can also be called directly to implement padding for other asymmetric ciphers. RSA_padding_add_PKCS1_OAEP() and RSA_padding_check_PKCS1_OAEP() may be used in an application combined with RSA_NO_PADDING in order to implement OAEP with an encoding parameter.

RSA_padding_add_xxx() encodes fl bytes from f so as to fit into tlen bytes and stores the result at to. An error occurs if fl does not meet the size requirements of the encoding method.

The following encoding methods are implemented:

  • PKCS1_type_1

    PKCS #1 v2.0 EMSA-PKCS1-v1_5 (PKCS #1 v1.5 block type 1); used for signatures

  • PKCS1_type_2

    PKCS #1 v2.0 EME-PKCS1-v1_5 (PKCS #1 v1.5 block type 2)

  • PKCS1_OAEP

    PKCS #1 v2.0 EME-OAEP

  • SSLv23

    PKCS #1 EME-PKCS1-v1_5 with SSL-specific modification

  • none

    simply copy the data

The random number generator must be seeded prior to calling RSA_padding_add_xxx().

RSA_padding_check_xxx() verifies that the fl bytes at f contain a valid encoding for a rsa_len byte RSA key in the respective encoding method and stores the recovered data of at most tlen bytes (for RSA_NO_PADDING: of size tlen) at to.

For RSA_padding_xxx_OAEP(), p points to the encoding parameter of length pl. p may be NULL if pl is 0.

RETURN VALUES

The RSA_padding_add_xxx() functions return 1 on success, 0 on error. The RSA_padding_check_xxx() functions return the length of the recovered data, -1 on error. Error codes can be obtained by calling ERR_get_error(3).
