NSS Sample Code 5: PKI Encryption with a raw public & private key in DER format


/* Example code to illustrate PKI crypto ops (encrypt with public key,
 * decrypt with private key)
 *
 * No NSS db needed. The Public Key & Private Key to use are
 * sourced from a base64-encoded DER SubjectPublicKeyInfo structure,
 * and a base64-encoded DER PrivateKeyInfo structure.
 *
 * There is no attempt to link the public & private key together
 *
 * This example does not do any padding. It simply encrypts/decrypts a block
 * of length equal to modulus length of the public/private key.
