Encrypt a short message with a public key. Opcode: 10 (0x000A)


key_nameStringName of the key to use for the operation
algAsymmetricEncryptionAn asymmetric encryption algorithm that is compatible with the type of key
plaintextVector of bytesShort message to encrypt
saltVector of bytesSalt to use during encryption, if supported by the algorithm
  • key_name must be the name of an RSA asymmetric key pair or public key. The key must allow the usage flag encrypt.
  • salt can be provided if supported by the algorithm. If the algorithm does not support salt, pass an empty vector. If the algorithm supports optional salt, pass an empty vector to indicate no salt. For RSA PKCS#1 v1.5 encryption, no salt is supported.


ciphertextVector of bytesBuffer containing the encrypted message

Specific response status codes

  • PsaErrorNotPermitted: The key does not have the encrypt flag, or it does not permit the requested algorithm.


This function will encrypt a short message with the public key provided, or of the provided key pair.
