2012-10-08X.509: Add a crypto key parser for binary (DER) X.509 certificatesDavid Howells
Add a crypto key parser for binary (DER) encoded X.509 certificates. The certificate is parsed and, if possible, the signature is verified. An X.509 key can be added like this: # keyctl padd crypto bar @s </tmp/x509.cert 15768135 and displayed like this: # cat /proc/keys 00f09a47 I--Q--- 1 perm 39390000 0 0 asymmetri bar: X509.RSA e9fd6d08 [] Note that this only works with binary certificates. PEM encoded certificates are ignored by the parser. Note also that the X.509 key ID is not congruent with the PGP key ID, but for the moment, they will match. If a NULL or "" name is given to add_key(), then the parser will generate a key description from the CertificateSerialNumber and Name fields of the TBSCertificate: 00aefc4e I--Q--- 1 perm 39390000 0 0 asymmetri bfbc0cd76d050ea4:/C=GB/L=Cambridge/O=Red Hat/CN=kernel key: X509.RSA 0c688c7b [] Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2012-10-08RSA: Implement signature verification algorithm [PKCS#1 / RFC3447]David Howells
Implement RSA public key cryptography [PKCS#1 / RFC3447]. At this time, only the signature verification algorithm is supported. This uses the asymmetric public key subtype to hold its key data. Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2012-10-08KEYS: Asymmetric public-key algorithm crypto key subtypeDavid Howells
Add a subtype for supporting asymmetric public-key encryption algorithms such as DSA (FIPS-186) and RSA (PKCS#1 / RFC1337). Signed-off-by: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Rusty Russell <rusty@rustcorp.com.au>
2012-10-08KEYS: Implement asymmetric key typeDavid Howells
Create a key type that can be used to represent an asymmetric key type for use in appropriate cryptographic operations, such as encryption, decryption, signature generation and signature verification. The key type is "asymmetric" and can provide access to a variety of cryptographic algorithms. Possibly, this would be better as "public_key" - but that has the disadvantage that "public key" is an overloaded term.
