DESCRIPTION

     These functions implement RSA public key encryption and sig-
     natures as defined in PKCS #1 v2.0 [RFC 2437].

     The RSA structure consists of several BIGNUM components. It
     can contain public as well as private RSA keys:

      struct
             {
             BIGNUM *n;              // public modulus
             BIGNUM *e;              // public exponent
             BIGNUM *d;              // private exponent
             BIGNUM *p;              // secret prime factor
             BIGNUM *q;              // secret prime factor
             BIGNUM *dmp1;           // d mod (p-1)
             BIGNUM *dmq1;           // d mod (q-1)
             BIGNUM *iqmp;           // q^-1 mod p
             // ...
             };
      RSA

     In public keys, the private exponent and the related secret
     values are NULL.

     p, q, dmp1, dmq1 and iqmp may be NULL in private keys, but
     the RSA operations are much faster when these values are
     available.

     Note that RSA keys may use non-standard RSA_METHOD implemen-
     tations, either directly or by the use of ENGINE modules. In
     some cases (eg. an ENGINE providing support for hardware-
     embedded keys), these BIGNUM values will not be used by the
     implementation or may be used for alternative data storage.
     For this reason, applications should generally avoid using
     RSA structure elements directly and instead use API func-
     tions to query or modify keys.
