# Crypto API

TIP

This is an advanced API and we assume that most of our users won't know what to do with it (for a fact, we are sure most of you won't need it 😉) But for those of you who do, this might be represent a powerful addon to your application.

# Generate Key Pair

Randomly generates an RSA key pair of 4096 bit that can be used for asymmetric cryptography.

Example (shortened)

"-----BEGIN PUBLIC KEY-----\nMIICIjANBgk...\n-----END PUBLIC KEY-----\n", "-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----\nMIIJQgIBA...\n-----END PRIVATE KEY-----\n
