include "keyring.m" keyring:= load Keyring Keyring->PATH; strtocert: fn(s: string) : ref Certificate; certtostr: fn(c: ref Certificate): string; strtopk: fn(s: string) : ref PK; pktostr: fn(pk: ref PK) : string; strtosk: fn(s: string) : ref SK; sktostr: fn(sk: ref SK) : string;
Strtocert takes a string argument containing a user name, a hash algorithm, a certifying authority and an expiration time. Fields are separated by a newline. The return value is a Certificate. If the string is of improper format, the result is nil.
Certtostr performs the inverse operation: takes the Certificate c and produces a text string suitable for communication over a network.
Strtopk and strtosk take as their arguments a string s representing the public and private keys respectively. S must contain an algorithm name, a user name and the key. Fields are separated by a newline. Strtopk returns a reference to the resulting PK; strtosk returns a reference to the resulting SK. If the format of s is invalid, the result is nil.
Pktostr and sktostr perform the inverse operations: they take a public key (secret key) and produce a printable representation as a string.
