The 'jsrsasign' (RSA-Sign JavaScript Library) is an opensource free cryptography library supporting RSA/RSAPSS/ECDSA/DSA signing/validation, ASN.1, PKCS#1/5/8 private/public key, X.509 certificate, CRL, OCSP, CMS SignedData, TimeStamp, CAdES JSON Web Signature/Token/Key in pure JavaScript.

Your bugfix and pull request contribution are always welcomed :)


The "jsrsasign" library is a long lived JavaScript library from 2010 developed with old JavaScript style and backword compatibility. From coming release 11.0.0, following are planed and suport them gradually:

  • Stop to support Internet Explorer.
  • Stop to support bower.
  • Modern ECMA functions will be introduced such as Promise, let, Array methods or class.
  • API document generator will be changed from Jsdoc Toolkit to JSDoc3.
  • Module bandler will be used such as browserify or webpack.
  • Not to use YUI compressor.
  • Unit test framework will be changed from QUnit and mocha to jest.
  • W3C Web Crypto API support.
  • split into some modules besides jsrsasign have been all in package before 11.0.0.

  • 2021-Nov-21: 10.5.0 Release. Now supports secp521r1(P-521) ECDSA.
  • 2021-Apr-14: Security advisory and update for CVE-2021-30246 RSA signature validation vulnerability published
  • 2020-Oct-05: jsrsasign won Google Open Source Peer Bonus Award. Thank you Google.
  • 2020-Sep-23: 10.0.0 released for CMS SignedData related class including timestamp and CAdES architecture update
  • 2020-Aug-24: 9.1.0 released to new CRL APIs align with certificate

  • Swiss Army Knife style all in one package crypto and PKI library
  • available on Node.js and browsers
  • Long live open source software from 2010
  • very easy API to use
  • powerful various format key loader and ASN.1 API
  • rich document and samples
  • no dependency to other library
  • no dependency to W3C Web Cryptography API nor OpenSSL
  • no dependency on newer ECMAScirpt function. So old browsers also supported.
  • very popular crypto library with 1M+ npm downloads/month
  • supports "Add-on" architecture


Node NPM

> npm install jsrsasign jsrsasign-util


> bower install jsrsasign

Or include in HTML from many CDN sites

> <script src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/jsrsasign/8.0.20/jsrsasign-all-min.js"></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
