This project derives content heavily from iOS Certificate, Key, and Trust Programming guide. It's primary purpose is to give the user the ability to quickly import/export RSA private keys from the keychain to the console.

branch: master
README.md

Purpose

This open source repo is designed to provide a convenient wrapper for the inbuilt iOS RSA cryptographic functionality.

Supported OS & SDK Versions

  • Supported build target - iOS 6.0 / Mac OS 10.8 (Xcode 4.5, Apple LLVM compiler 4.1)

ARC Compatibility

This project is written according to ARC conventions.

Installation

Copy the crypto library into your project or workspace. You must link the Security.framework to any targets that will be using this library. Also add the -ObjC and -all_load linker flags to dependent targets.

Examples

Examples for usage can be found in ViewController.m.

    [super viewDidLoad];
