OpenSSL i2o_ECPublicKey not working

0 votes

I have this code:

#include <stdio.h>

#include <openssl/sha.h>

#include <openssl/ssl.h>


int main(){

    printf("OpenSSL version: %s\n",OPENSSL_VERSION_TEXT);

    EC_KEY * key = EC_KEY_new_by_curve_name(NID_secp256k1);

    if(!EC_KEY_generate_key(key)){

        printf("GENERATE KEY FAIL\n");

        return 1;

    }

    u_int8_t pubSize = i2o_ECPublicKey(key, NULL);

    if(!pubSize){

        printf("PUB KEY TO DATA ZERO\n");

        return 1;

    }

    u_int8_t * pubKey = malloc(pubSize);

    if(i2o_ECPublicKey(key, &pubKey) != pubSize){

        printf("PUB KEY TO DATA FAIL\n");

        return 1;

    }

    u_int8_t * hash = malloc(SHA256_DIGEST_LENGTH);

    SHA256(pubKey, pubSize, hash);

    for (int x = 0; x < 32; x++) {

        printf("%.2x",hash[x]);

    }

    EC_KEY_free(key);

    free(pubKey);

    free(hash);

    return 0;

}

I get this error after second i2o_ECPublicKey:

(gdb) p/x *pubKey @ 65

Cannot access memory at address 0x4d0ff1

Please help.

When your right something in the buffer, the pointer is moved to point to the location at the end of what you have written. So, i2o_ECPublicKey moves the pointer by the number of bytes you have written into the buffer.

Try this code and it’ll work:


           u_int8_t * pubKey = malloc(pubSize);

    +       u_int8_t * pubKey2 = pubKey;

    -       if(i2o_ECPublicKey(key, &pubKey) != pubSize){

    +       if(i2o_ECPublicKey(key, &pubKey2) != pubSize){

                printf("PUB KEY TO DATA FAIL\n");
