Q:

Can I pass the output generated from PKA directly to the PKTE module for encryption/decryption?

 

--------------

 

A:

No, this cannot be done directly as PKTE supports Little Endian format whereas PKA supports BigEndian Format.

 

So if we are using PKA and PKTE together in an application the user will have to make sure that the Endianness for both the module is taken into account for correct operation of both module
