I encrypted a file with a symmetric key using the
openssl command line, and then I encrypted that symmetric key with a RSA public key. I experimented a bit with the encryption and decryption, and then I accidentally encrypted the symmetric key with my RSA private key. The encryption went on with no errors.
So now I can't decrypt the symmetric key so to get to my file. Is there any
openssl command that decrypts with the public key?
The command line that I have used for encryption:
openssl rsautl -encrypt -inkey private_key.pem -in symmKey.key -out symmKey.enc
and for the decryption I tried to use:
openssl rsautl -decrypt -inkey public_key.pem -pubin -in symmKey.enc -out symmKey.key
I also tried to verify the
openssl rsautl -verify -inkey public_key.pem -pubin -in symmKey.enc -out symmKey.key
but then I am getting the following error:
RSA operation error 5968:error:0407008A:rsa routines:RSA_padding_check_PKCS1_type_1:invalid padding:crypto\rsa\rsa_pk1.c:67: 5968:error:04067072:rsa routines:rsa_ossl_public_decrypt:padding check failed:crypto\rsa\rsa_ossl.c:586:`
