AW: [iaik-jce] Another RSA question



> What is is the "block_type" parameter about? The documentation says:
This is defined in PKCS#1, see
http://www.rsasecurity.com/rsalabs/pkcs/pkcs-1/index.html - it explains it
all.

> How will this work at all? And what is a encryption with the private key
> good for? Normally I do a signing operation with the private key,
> encryption with the public key
> (of another entity), or am I wrong here? So the "block_type"
signing is in fact an encryption operation.
