public_key - key infrastructure.
Please see following description for synopsis
Erlang Application Definition public_key(7) NAME public_key - Provides functions to handle public-key infrastructure. DESCRIPTION Provides encode/decode of different file formats (PEM, OpenSSH), digi- tal signature and verification functions, validation of certificate paths and certificate revocation lists (CRLs) and other functions for handling of certificates, keys and CRLs. * Supports RFC 5280 - Internet X.509 Public-Key Infrastructure Cer- tificate and Certificate Revocation List (CRL) Profile. Certificate policies are currently not supported. * Supports PKCS-1 - RSA Cryptography Standard * Supports DSS - Digital Signature Standard (DSA - Digital Signature Algorithm) * Supports PKCS-3 - Diffie-Hellman Key Agreement Standard * Supports PKCS-5 - Password-Based Cryptography Standard * Supports PKCS-8 - Private-Key Information Syntax Standard * Supports PKCS-10 - Certification Request Syntax Standard DEPENDENCIES The public_key application uses the Crypto application to perform cryp- tographic operations and the ASN-1 application to handle PKIX-ASN-1 specifications, hence these applications must be loaded for the pub- lic_key application to work. In an embedded environment this means they must be started with application:start/[1,2] before the public_key application is started. ERROR LOGGER AND EVENT HANDLERS The public_key application is a library application and does not use the error logger. The functions will either succeed or fail with a run- time error.
