Bug #8177: ext/openssl/pkcs7 signing fails with EC keys
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8177#change-38248

Author: Jacob640 (Joseph Coyle)
Status: Assigned
Priority: Normal
Assignee: MartinBosslet (Martin Bosslet)
Category: ext
Target version: current: 2.1.0
ruby -v: ruby 2.1.0dev (2013-03-27 trunk 39950) [x86_64-darwin11.4.2]


ext/openssl/pkcs7 signing fails with EC keys.   This happens because the EC keys do not respond to key.private? method which is used to check that the key is a private key.  Aliasing the instance method OpenSSL::PKey::EC.private_key? as OpenSSL::PKey::EC.private? fixes this problem and allows EC keys to be used for EC key signing.

This problem is demonstrated at https://gist.github.com/Jacob640/5239454

One potential fix which makes the key interface more consistent is here: https://github.com/ruby/ruby/pull/265

This request also improves the EC public key interface by producing a warning if the public key is set before setting an EC group as required.
