in thread Private keys in Crypt::RSA

Hi, I am trying to use deserialize i get an error every time "n is not a number". I have generated a set of keys and dont want to store private key any where. Currently as I am testing my code I have stored the serialize key as variable. It does not error when i pass it to $private->deserialize but errors when I call $rsa->decrypt. Can you please help me. thanks

    I realize this is an ancient thread, but I ran across the same error and finally figured out the problem.

    After de-serializing the private key (I just used the Crypt::RSA::Key::Private->read method) you MUST use the 'reveal' method and give it the password you originally used to generate the keypair.

    my $rsa_private = new Crypt::RSA::Key::Private; my $private = $rsa_private->read(Filename => "id_rsa"); ## This is vital if you want the loaded private key to work. $private->reveal(Password => "originalkeypairpassword");
