Functions for Building RSA System

You can use the primitives to build an RSA cryptographic system with the supplied randomized seed and stimulus. The function
key components for the desired RSA cryptographic system
RSA Primitives and RSA-based schemes (RSA-OAEP Scheme Functions and RSA-SSA Scheme Functions) use
context, which is initialized in a call to the
, or
function, as an operational vehicle carrying the RSA public or private keys.
To provide minimum security, the length of the RSA modulus must be equal to or greater than 1024 bits.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
