(PureBasic) RSA Encrypting Symmetric Secret Key

The RSA encryption algorithm is computationally expensive. It is not the best choice for encrypting large amounts of data. Symmetric encryption algorithms such as AES (i.e. Rijndael) or Blowfish are much more efficient. A typical application scenario is that you want to send encrypted messages to a partner, but you don't want to send the symmetric key unprotected. A solution is to generate a public/private RSA key pair and provide your partner with the public key (in advance). You may then encrypt the symmetric algorithm's key using the RSA private key. Next, encrypt the message using the symmetric algorithm, and send your partner both the encrypted key and encrypted message. Your partner decrypts by first RSA decrypting the key, and then uses the decrypted symmetric key to decrypt the message content.

Procedure ChilkatExample()

    ; This example assumes the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
    ; See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

    rsa.i = CkRsa::ckCreate()
    If rsa.i = 0
        Debug "Failed to create object."
        ProcedureReturn
    EndIf

    crypt.i = CkCrypt2::ckCreate()
    If crypt.i = 0
        Debug "Failed to create object."
        ProcedureReturn
    EndIf

    ; Load a public/private key pair from a .snk key file.
    ; Assume you have already provided your partner with 
    ; the public key part of the key pair.
    xmlKey.s = CkRsa::ckSnkToXml(rsa,"chilkat2.snk")

    ; Alternatively, you may generate a public/private key pair 
    ; by calling GenerateKey..

    ; Import the private key into the RSA instance.
    success.i = CkRsa::ckImportPrivateKey(rsa,xmlKey)

    ; Our message data will be encrypted using 128-bit AES
    ; encryption, using CBC (cipher-block chaining).
    CkCrypt2::setCkCryptAlgorithm(crypt, "aes")
    CkCrypt2::setCkCipherMode(crypt, "cbc")

    ; Use the key we generated:

    ; Symmetric encrypt a message.  For this example the message

    success = CkRsa::ckImportPublicKey(rsa,xmlKey)

    ; First, decrypt the encryptedKey:
    bUsePrivateKey = 1
    decryptedKey.s = CkRsa::ckDecryptStringENC(rsa,encryptedKey,bUsePrivateKey)
    Debug "Decrypted Key: " + decryptedKey

    ; Set our crypt object's properties and secret key:
    crypt2.i = CkCrypt2::ckCreate()
    If crypt2.i = 0
        Debug "Failed to create object."
        ProcedureReturn
    EndIf

    CkCrypt2::setCkEncodingMode(crypt2, "base64")
    CkCrypt2::ckSetEncodedKey(crypt2,decryptedKey,"hex")

    ; Decrypt the message:
    decryptedText.s = CkCrypt2::ckDecryptStringENC(crypt2,encryptedText)
    Debug "Decrypted Text: " + decryptedText
