The RsaPssParams dictionary of the Web Crypto API represents the object that should be passed as the algorithm parameter into SubtleCrypto.sign() or SubtleCrypto.verify(), when using the RSA-PSS algorithm.

Instance properties


A string. This should be set to RSA-PSS.


A long integer representing the length of the random salt to use, in bytes.

RFC 3447 says that "Typical salt lengths" are either 0 or the length of the output of the digest algorithm that was selected when this key was generated. For example, if you use SHA-256 as the digest algorithm, this could be 32.

The maximum size of saltLength is given by:

Math.ceil((keySizeInBits - 1) / 8) - digestSizeInBytes - 2;

So for a key length of 2048 bits and a digest output size of 32 bytes, the maximum size would be 222.


See the examples for SubtleCrypto.sign() and SubtleCrypto.verify().

Browser compatibility

Browsers that support the "RSA-PSS" algorithm for the SubtleCrypto.sign() and SubtleCrypto.verify() methods will support this type.
