Introduction

When browsing the internet looking for a good solution to RSA Javascript encryption, there is a whole slew of libraries that basically take the fantastic work done by Tom Wu @ http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~tjw/jsbn/ and then modify that code to do what they want.

What I couldn't find, however, was a simple wrapper around this library that basically uses the library practically untouched, but adds a wrapper to provide parsing of actual Private and Public key-pairs generated with OpenSSL.

This library is the result of these efforts.

How to use this library.

This library should work hand-in-hand with openssl. With that said, here is how to use this library.

  • Within your terminal (Unix based OS) type the following.
openssl genrsa -out rsa_1024_priv.pem 1024
  • This generates a private key, which you can see by doing the following...
cat rsa_1024_priv.pem
  • You can then copy and paste this in the Private Key section of within index.html.
  • Next, you can then get the public key by executing the following command.
openssl rsa -pubout -in rsa_1024_priv.pem -out rsa_1024_pub.pem
  • You can see the public key by typing...
cat rsa_1024_pub.pem
  • Now copy and paste this in the Public key within the index.html.
  • Now you can then convert to and from encrypted text by doing the following in code.
<!doctype html>

    <script type="text/javascript">

      // Call this code when the page is done loading.
      $(function() {

        // Run a quick encryption/decryption when they click.
        $('#testme').click(function() {

          // Encrypt with the public key...
          var encrypt = new JSEncrypt();
          encrypt.setPublicKey($('#pubkey').val());
          var encrypted = encrypt.encrypt($('#input').val());

          // Decrypt with the private key...
          var decrypt = new JSEncrypt();
          decrypt.setPrivateKey($('#privkey').val());
          var uncrypted = decrypt.decrypt(encrypted);

          // Now a simple check to see if the round-trip worked.
          if (uncrypted == $('#input').val()) {
            alert('It works!!!');
          }
          else {
            alert('Something went wrong....');
          }
        });
      });

Other Information

This library heavily utilizes the wonderful work of Tom Wu found at http://www-cs-students.stanford.edu/~tjw/jsbn/.

This jsbn library was written using the raw variables to perform encryption. This is great for encryption, but most private keys use a Private Key in the PEM format seen below.

1024 bit RSA Private Key in Base64 Format

-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

This library simply takes keys in the following format, and translates it to those variables needed to perform the encryptions used in Tom Wu's library.

Here are some good resources to investigate further.

With this information, we can translate a private key format to the variables required with the jsbn library from Tom Wu by using the following mappings.

modulus => n
public exponent => e
private exponent => d
prime1 => p
prime2 => q
exponent1 => dmp1
exponent2 => dmq1
coefficient => coeff
