Creating RSA Keys using OpenSSL

05 August 2020 OpenSSL

Creating a private key for token signing doesn’t need to be a mystery. Recently, I wrote about using OpenSSL to create keys suitable for Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC), and in this article, I am going to show you how to do the same for RSA private and public keys, suitable for signature generation with RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5 and RSASSA-PSS.

Creating Elliptical Curve Keys using OpenSSL

20 July 2020 OpenSSL

Recently, I have been using OpenSSL to generate private keys and X509 certificates for Elliptical Curve Cryptography (ECC) and then using them in ASP.NET Core for token signing.

In this article, I’m going to show you how to use OpenSSL to generate private and public keys on the curve of your choice.
