RSA tools. Lightweight. Zero Dependencies. Universal compatibility.

  • Fast and Easy RSA Key Generation
  • PEM-to-JWK
  • JWK-to-PEM
  • JWK thumbprint
  • SSH “pub” format
  • ECDSA
    • Need EC or ECDSA tools? Check out Eckles.js

Generate RSA Key

Achieves the fastest possible key generation using node’s native RSA bindings to OpenSSL, then converts to JWK for ease-of-use.

Rasha.generate({ format: 'jwk' }).then(function (keypair) {
  console.log(keypair.private);
  console.log(keypair.public);
});

options

  • format defaults to 'jwk'
    • 'pkcs1' (traditional)
    • 'pkcs8'
  • modulusLength defaults to 2048 (must not be lower)
    • generally you shouldn’t pick a larger key size - they’re slow
    • 2048 is more than sufficient
    • 3072 is way, way overkill and takes a few seconds to generate
    • 4096 can take about a minute to generate and is just plain wasteful

advanced options

These options are provided for debugging and should not be used.

  • publicExponent defaults to 65537 (0x10001)

PEM-to-JWK

  • PKCS#1 (traditional)
  • PKCS#8, SPKI/PKIX
  • 2048-bit, 3072-bit, 4096-bit (and ostensibily all others)
  • SSH (RFC4716), (RFC 4716/SSH2)
var Rasha = require('rasha');
var pem = require('fs')
  .readFileSync('./node_modles/rasha/fixtures/privkey-rsa-2048.pkcs1.pem', 'ascii');

Rasha.import({ pem: pem }).then(function (jwk) {
  console.log(jwk);

Advanced Options

format: 'pkcs8':

The default output format pkcs1 (RSA-specific format) is used for private keys. Use format: 'pkcs8' to output in PKCS#8 format instead.

Rasha.export({ jwk: jwk, format: 'pkcs8' }).then(function (pem) {
  // PEM in PKCS#8 format
  console.log(pem);
});

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

format: 'ssh':

Although SSH uses PKCS#1 for private keys, it uses ts own special non-ASN1 format (affectionately known as rfc4716) for public keys. I got curious and then decided to add this format as well.

To get the same format as you would get with ssh-keygen, pass ssh as the format option:

Rasha.export({ jwk: jwk, format: 'ssh' }).then(function (pub) {
  // Special SSH2 Public Key format (RFC 4716)
  console.log(pub);
});
ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQCba21UHE.....Q02P1Eamz/nT4I3 rsa@localhost

public: 'true':

If a private key is used as input, a private key will be output.

If you’d like to output a public key instead you can pass public: true.

or format: 'spki'.

Rasha.export({ jwk: jwk, public: true }).then(function (pem) {
  // PEM in SPKI/PKIX format
  console.log(pem);
});
-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----

-----END PUBLIC KEY-----

JWK Thumbprint

Rasha.thumbprint({ jwk: jwk }).then(function (thumbprint) {
  console.log(thumbprint);
});

Testing

All cases are tested in test.sh.

You can compare these keys to the ones that you get from OpenSSL, OpenSSH/ssh-keygen, and WebCrypto:

# Generate 2048-bit RSA Keypair
openssl genrsa -out privkey-rsa-2048.pkcs1.pem 2048

# Convert PKCS1 (traditional) RSA Keypair to PKCS8 format
openssl rsa -in privkey-rsa-2048.pkcs1.pem -pubout -out pub-rsa-2048.spki.pem

# Export Public-only RSA Key in PKCS1 (traditional) format
openssl pkcs8 -topk8 -nocrypt -in privkey-rsa-2048.pkcs1.pem -out privkey-rsa-2048.pkcs8.pem

# Convert PKCS1 (traditional) RSA Public Key to SPKI/PKIX format
openssl rsa -in pub-rsa-2048.spki.pem -pubin -RSAPublicKey_out -out pub-rsa-2048.pkcs1.pem

# Convert RSA public key to SSH format
ssh-keygen -f ./pub-rsa-2048.spki.pem -i -mPKCS8 > ./pub-rsa-2048.ssh.pub

Goals of this project

  • Focused support for 2048-bit and 4096-bit RSA keypairs (although any size is technically supported)
  • Zero Dependencies
  • VanillaJS
  • Quality Code: Good comments and tests
  • Convert both ways: PEM-to-JWK and JWK-to-PEM (also supports SSH pub files)
  • Browser support as well (TODO)
  • OpenSSL, ssh-keygen, and WebCrypto compatibility
