CkSshKey Ruby Reference Documentation

CkSshKey

Provides the ability to read and write Putty and OpenSSH format public and private keys. Supports both DSA and RSA keys. Able to generate new keys. Encryption/decryption of keys is supported. Can convert to/from Putty OpenSSH, and XML formats.

Object Creation

obj = Chilkat::CkSshKey.new()

Properties

# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
sshKey.get_Comment(ckStr);
strVal = sshKey.comment();
sshKey.put_Comment(strVal);

Some key file formats allow a comment to be included. This is the comment if present.

# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
sshKey.get_DebugLogFilePath(ckStr);
strVal = sshKey.debugLogFilePath();
sshKey.put_DebugLogFilePath(strVal);

If set to a file path, causes each Chilkat method or property call to automatically append it's LastErrorText to the specified log file. The information is appended such that if a hang or crash occurs, it is possible to see the context in which the problem occurred, as well as a history of all Chilkat calls up to the point of the problem. The VerboseLogging property can be set to provide more detailed information.

This property is typically used for debugging the rare cases where a Chilkat method call hangs or generates an exception that halts program execution (i.e. crashes). A hang or crash should generally never happen. The typical causes of a hang are:

  1. a timeout related property was set to 0 to explicitly indicate that an infinite timeout is desired,
  2. the hang is actually a hang within an event callback (i.e. it is a hang within the application code), or
  3. there is an internal problem (bug) in the Chilkat code that causes the hang.

# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = sshKey.get_IsDsaKey();

true if the object contains a DSA key. false if the object contains an RSA key.

# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = sshKey.get_IsPrivateKey();

true if the object contains a private key. false if it contains a public key.

# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = sshKey.get_IsRsaKey();

true if the object contains an RSA key. false if the object contains a DSA key.

# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
sshKey.get_LastErrorHtml(ckStr);
strVal = sshKey.lastErrorHtml();

Provides information in HTML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
sshKey.get_LastErrorText(ckStr);
strVal = sshKey.lastErrorText();

Provides information in plain-text format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

Concept of LastErrorText

LastErrorText Standard Information

# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
sshKey.get_LastErrorXml(ckStr);
strVal = sshKey.lastErrorXml();

Provides information in XML format about the last method/property called. If a method call returns a value indicating failure, or behaves unexpectedly, examine this property to get more information.

# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = sshKey.get_LastMethodSuccess();
sshKey.put_LastMethodSuccess(boolVal);

Introduced in version 9.5.0.52

Indicate whether the last method call succeeded or failed. A value of true indicates success, a value of false indicates failure. This property is automatically set for method calls. It is not modified by property accesses. The property is automatically set to indicate success for the following types of method calls:

  • Any method that returns a string.
  • Any method returning a Chilkat object, binary bytes, or a date/time.
  • Any method returning a standard boolean status value where success = true and failure = false.
  • Any method returning an integer where failure is defined by a return value less than zero.

Note: Methods that do not fit the above requirements will always set this property equal to true. For example, a method that returns no value (such as a "void" in C++) will technically always succeed.

# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
sshKey.get_Password(ckStr);
strVal = sshKey.password();
sshKey.put_Password(strVal);

The password to be used when importing or exporting encrypted private keys.

Use PuTTY Key for SSH Tunnel (PPK Private Key)

# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = sshKey.get_Utf8();
sshKey.put_Utf8(boolVal);

When set to true, all "const char *" arguments are interpreted as utf-8 strings. If set to false (the default), then "const char *" arguments are interpreted as ANSI strings. Also, when set to true, and Chilkat method returning a "const char *" is returning the utf-8 representation. If set to false, all "const char *" return values are ANSI strings.

# boolVal is a boolean
boolVal = sshKey.get_VerboseLogging();
sshKey.put_VerboseLogging(boolVal);

If set to true, then the contents of LastErrorText (or LastErrorXml, or LastErrorHtml) may contain more verbose information. The default value is false. Verbose logging should only be used for debugging. The potentially large quantity of logged information may adversely affect peformance.

# strVal is a string
# ckStr is a CkString
sshKey.get_Version(ckStr);
strVal = sshKey.version();

Version of the component/library, such as "9.5.0.63"

Methods

# keyStr is a string
status = sshKey.FromOpenSshPrivateKey(keyStr);

Loads an SSH key from an OpenSSH private-key file format. If the key is encrypted, set the Password property prior to calling this method.

Note: keyStr is not a filename -- it should contain the contents of the OpenSSH formatted private key. To load from a file, you may first call LoadText to load the complete contents of a text file into a string.

Here are are samples of RSA and DSA private keys in OpenSSH format, both encrypted and unencrypted:

Load an SSH Key from a File

# keyStr is a string
status = sshKey.FromOpenSshPublicKey(keyStr);

Loads an OpenSSH public-key from an OpenSSH formatted public-key.

Note: keyStr is not a filename -- it should contain the contents of the OpenSSH formatted public key. To load from a file, you may first call LoadText to load the complete contents of a text file into a string.

Sample OpenSSH-formatted DSA and RSA public keys are below:

Convert PuTTY Private Key (ppk) to OpenSSH (pem)

Load an SSH Key from a File

# keyStr is a string
status = sshKey.FromRfc4716PublicKey(keyStr);

Loads an SSH public key from an RFC 4716 format.

Note: keyStr is not a filename -- it should contain the contents of the PuTTY formatted public key. To load from a file, you may first call LoadText to load the complete contents of a text file into a string. Sample RFC 4716 DSA and RSA public keys are below:

Returns true for success, false for failure.

Load an SSH Key from a File

# xmlKey is a string
status = sshKey.FromXml(xmlKey);

Loads an SSH key from XML.

Note: xmlKey is not a filename -- it should contain the contents of the XML SSH key. To load from a file, you may first call LoadText to load the complete contents of a text file into a string.

Here are RSA public/private keys in XML format:

<RSAPublicKey>
    <Modulus>x+52s7vvaZ8rT2UdFZWlSUVDHD ... D/m73pYaEJB3Nd7w==</Modulus>
    <Exponent>JQ==</Exponent>
</RSAPublicKey>

<RSAKeyValue>
    <Modulus>vTjHMg1+n.....JHHlPIghw==</Modulus>
    <Exponent>AQAB</Exponent>
    <P>zfbbQagHiP48y.....udBR7n5w+MhP7c=</P>
    <Q>6zCwDGB8ipB....dSEy+BvdVRv9hbE=</Q>
    <DP>zcNdvlUg2g......9F72NjnAhQUjc=</DP>
    <DQ>1XB2FIVsA.....qNewUutJKWXcE=</DQ>
    <InverseQ>qHYYHyZI9d....VuqCeqsMeJ9I=</InverseQ>
    <D>Ar1Xgk/P1t4fd2Ryr........Onkwwn4Q==</D>
</RSAKeyValue>

Returns true for success, false for failure.

# numBits is an integer
status = sshKey.GenerateDsaKey(numBits);

Generates a new SSH DSA key that is numBits bits in length. The numBits should be at least 1024 bits and a multiple of 64. Typical values are 1024 and 2048.

Returns true for success, false for failure.

Generate DSA SSH Key

# numBits is an integer
# exponent is an integer
status = sshKey.GenerateRsaKey(numBits, exponent);

Generates a new RSA public/private key pair. The numBits can range from 384 to 4096. Typical key lengths are 1024 or 2048 bits. After successful generation, the public/private keys can be exported in OpenSSH or PuTTY format.

(excerpt from Wikipedia's article on RSA) 65537 is a commonly used value for exponent. This value can be regarded as a compromise between avoiding potential small exponent attacks and still allowing efficient encryptions (or signature verification). The NIST Special Publication on Computer Security (SP 800-78 Rev 1 of August 2007) does not allow public exponents e smaller than 65537, but does not state a reason for this restriction.

Returns true for success, false for failure.

Generate RSA SSH Key

# outStr is a CkString (output)
status = sshKey.GenFingerprint(outStr);
retStr = sshKey.genFingerprint();

Generates a fingerpring for an SSH key. A sample fingerprint looks like this:

ssh-dss 2048 d0:5f:f7:d6:49:60:7b:50:19:f4:41:59:d4:1f:61:7a

Returns true for success, false for failure.

SSH Key Fingerprint

# filename is a string
# outStr is a CkString (output)
status = sshKey.LoadText(filename, outStr);
retStr = sshKey.loadText(filename);

Convenience method for loading an entire text file into an in-memory string.

Returns true for success, false for failure.

Load an SSH Key from a File

# path is a string
status = sshKey.SaveLastError(path);

Saves the last-error information (the contents of LastErrorXml) to an XML formatted file.

Returns true for success, false for failure.

# strToSave is a string
# filename is a string
status = sshKey.SaveText(strToSave, filename);

Convenience method for saving the contents of a string variable to a file.

Returns true for success, false for failure.

# bEncrypt is a boolean
# outStr is a CkString (output)
status = sshKey.ToOpenSshPrivateKey(bEncrypt, outStr);
retStr = sshKey.toOpenSshPrivateKey(bEncrypt);

Exports the private key to a string in OpenSSH format. If bEncrypt is true, the key is encrypted using the value of the Password property. Below are samples of RSA and DSA private keys in OpenSSH format, both encrypted and unencrypted:
