Python PyCrypto: Generate RSA Keys Example.py
defgenerate_RSA(bits=2048):
''
Generate an RSA keypair with an exponent of 65537 in PEM format
param: bits The key length in bits
Return private key and public key
''
fromCrypto.PublicKeyimportRSA
new_key=RSA.generate(bits, e=65537)
public_key=new_key.publickey().exportKey('PEM')
private_key=new_key.exportKey('PEM')
returnprivate_key, public_key

In the Number of bits in a generated key box, enter 2048. Click Generate to generate a public/private key pair. As the key is being generated, move the mouse around the blank area as directed. (Optional) Enter a passphrase for the private key in the Key passphrase box and reenter it in the Confirm passphrase box.

Pycrypto is unmaintained and has known vulnerabilities. Use pycryptodome, it is a drop-in replacement.

Generate Public Key From Private Key

e should be random methinks =P

@miigotu 'youthinks' wrong. e should be chosen so that e and λ(n) are coprime. It is not chosen at random, and since it is usually small for computation reasons, and included in the public key, it can always be known by an attacker anyway.

from Crypto.PublicKey import RSA
code = 'nooneknows'

key = RSA.generate(2048)
privatekey = key.exportKey(passphrase=code, pkcs=8)
publickey = key.publickey().exportKey()

Nice But How Can I Write The Private Key I Tried This:
f = open('PublicKey.pem','w')
f.write(publick_key)
f.close()

BUT IT DOESN'T WORK WITH THE PRIVATE KEY, JUST RETURNS 0B

@WarAtLord try publick_key.exportKey('PEM')

In a public key cryptography system, senders and receivers do not use the same key.Instead, the system defines a key pair, with one of the keys beingconfidential (private) and the other not (public).

Unlike keys meant for symmetric cipher algorithms (typically justrandom bit strings), keys for public key algorithms have very specificproperties. This module collects all methods to generate, validate,store and retrieve public keys.

API principles¶

Asymmetric keys are represented by Python objects. Each object can be eithera private key or a public key (the method has_private() can be usedto distinguish them).

A key object can be created in four ways:

  1. generate() at the module level (e.g. Crypto.PublicKey.RSA.generate()).The key is randomly created each time.
  2. import_key() at the module level (e.g. Crypto.PublicKey.RSA.import_key()).The key is loaded from memory.
  3. construct() at the module level (e.g. Crypto.PublicKey.RSA.construct()).The key will be built from a set of sub-components.
  4. publickey() at the object level (e.g. Crypto.PublicKey.RSA.RsaKey.publickey()).The key will be the public key matching the given object.

A key object can be serialized via its export_key() method.

Keys objects can be compared via the usual operators and != (note that the two halves of the same key,private and public, are considered as two different keys).
