pkey_new

Generates a new private key

Syntax

Function pkey_new([configargs]) As Object

pkey_new() generates a new private and public key pair. The public component of the key can be obtained using pkey_get_public(). You can finetune the key generation (such as specifying the number of bits) using configargs. See csr_new() for more information about configargs.

Note: You need to have a valid openssl.cnf installed for this function to operate correctly. See the notes under the installation section for more information.
