Node NPM

> npm install jsrsasign jsrsasign-util


> bower install jsrsasign

Or include in HTML from many CDN sites

> <script src=""></script>


Loading encrypted PKCS#5 private key:

> var rs = require('jsrsasign');
> var rsu = require('jsrsasign-util');
> var pem = rsu.readFile('z1.prv.p5e.pem');
> var prvKey = rs.KEYUTIL.getKey(pem, 'passwd');

Sign string 'aaa' with the loaded private key:

> var sig = new a.Signature({alg: 'SHA1withRSA'});
> sig.init(prvKey);
> sig.updateString('aaa');
> var sigVal = sig.sign();
> sigVal
