public_key(7)		 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 ap-
       plication 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.
