(DataFlex) About RSA Public/Private Keys

This example provides some additional information for understanding public/private key pairs. In demonstrates how a private key is a superset of the public key. A public key contains the modulus and exponent. The matching private key also contains the modulus and exponent, but also contains the additional private key parts.

        Get Create (RefClass(cComChilkatPublicKey)) To hoPubKey

    Showln "Public Key from Certificate:"
    Get ComGetXml Of hoPubKey To sTemp1

    //  An RSA public key consists of a modulus and exponent.

    //  An RSA private key includes both the modulus and exponent,
    //  as well as other "big" numbers: P, Q, D, etc.

    //  Let's load an RSA private key from a DER-encoded file:
    Get Create (RefClass(cComChilkatPrivateKey)) To hoPrivKey
    If (Not(IsComObjectCreated(hoPrivKey))) Begin
        Send CreateComObject of hoPrivKey
    End

    Get ComLoadRsaDerFile Of hoPrivKey "PrivateKey.key" To iSuccess
    If (iSuccess <> True) Begin
        Get ComLastErrorText Of hoPrivKey To sTemp1
        Showln sTemp1
        Send Destroy of hoPubKey
        Procedure_Return
    End

    //  If this private key is the matching half to the public key from
    //  the certificate, then the modulus and exponent should
    //  be identical.  (Thus, a "private key" really contains both the public part as well as the private parts...).
    Showln "Private Key from DER:"
    Get ComGetXml Of hoPrivKey To sTemp1
    Showln sTemp1

    Send Destroy of hoPubKey
