in thread Crypt::RSA Cant load private key

I just looked at some of my code that successfully uses private keys (for signing). And found code like this:

use File::Slurp qw(read_file); use MIME::Base64 qw(encode_base64); require Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA; my $key_text = read_file( $key_filename ); my $rsa_key = Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA->new_private_key($key_text); $rsa_key->use_pkcs1_padding(); my $bin_signature = $rsa_key->sign($plaintext); print encode_base64($bin_signature, '');

    Hi grantm, I tried your code and its the same problem
    message:
    RSA.xs:146: OpenSSL error: no start line at decryption.pl line 38.
    line 38 =
    my $rsa_key = Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA->new_private_key($key_text);
    It would be much to ask what version of module OpenSSL::RSA are you using?

    Does OpenSSL need that the --- BEGIN PRIVATE KEY --- headers be there? Im very sure those headers are there, because I've executed the command:

    $ openssl pkcs8 -inform DER -in pza000413788_1011171750s.key Enter Password:
    And I see the Headers:
    -----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
    But what I ment is if should I have to change the format of the privateKey File or something. Any suggestion is really apreciated!

      DER is a purely binary format. If you base64 encode DER data, and add those -----BEGIN/END----- blocks you get something called PEM. It's pretty easy to convert between them:

      my $der = MIME::Base64::decode_base64( join "\n" => grep { !/^-----(BEGIN|END)\s.*-----$/ } split /\n/, $pem );
      I leave the conversion in the opposite direction as an exercise for the reader.
        This isn't the case.
        if I do base64 to the .key file what I get is:
