Re: Timekoin and Python

Post by warmach »

What I seem to be encountering is that TK does things "backwards" In most RSA encryption, you encrypt with the public key and then decrypt with the private. In our case, we want the opposite so that everyone can read the transactions.

The problem I am encountering is that python libraries are expecting there to be a private key on decryption. I don't want to have to rewrite any libraries and risk opening a security hole.

Is there any reason we can't use RSA sign/verify to do the same thing?
