RSA_check_key(3) OpenSSL RSA_check_key(3)NAMERSA_check_key - validate private RSA keysLIBRARYlibcrypto, -lcryptoSYNOPSIS#include <openssl/rsa.h> int RSA_check_key(RSA *rsa);DESCRIPTIONThis function validates RSA keys. It checks thatpandqare in fact prime, and thatn=p*q. It also checks thatd*e=1mod(p-1*q-1), and thatdmp1,dmq1andiqmpare set correctly or areNULL. As such, this function can not be used with any arbitrary RSA key object, even if it is otherwise fit for regular RSA operation. SeeNOTESfor more information.RETURNVALUERSA_check_key() returns 1 ifrsais a valid RSA key, and 0 otherwise. -1 is returned if an error occurs while checking the key. If the key is invalid or an error occurred, the reason code can be obtained using ERR_get_error(3).NOTESThis function does not work on RSA public keys that have only the modulus and public exponent elements populated. It performs integrity checks on all the RSA key material, so the RSA key structure must contain all the private key data too. Unlike most other RSA functions, this function doesnotwork transparently with any underlying ENGINE implementation because it uses the key data in the RSA structure directly. An ENGINE implementation can override the way key data is stored and handled, and can even provide support for HSM keys - in which case the RSA structure may containnokey data at all! If the ENGINE in question is only being used for acceleration or analysis purposes, then in all likelihood the RSA key data is complete and untouched, but this can't be assumed in the general case.BUGSA method of verifying the RSA key using opaque RSA API functions might need to be considered. Right now RSA_check_key() simply uses the RSA structure elements directly, bypassing the RSA_METHOD table altogether (and completely violating encapsulation and object-orientation in the process). The best fix will probably be to introduce a "check_key()" handler to the RSA_METHOD function table so that alternative implementations can also provide their own verifiers.SEEALSOopenssl_rsa(3), ERR_get_error(3)HISTORYRSA_check_key() appeared in OpenSSL 0.9.4. 1.0.2k 2009-07-19 RSA_check_key(3)
