Working with asymmetric public key

Aspose.Words REST API includes a GetPublicKey method that allows developers to retrieve the public key for an asymmetric encryption algorithm. The public key is returned in the form of a string, which can then be used to encrypt data.

Asymmetric encryption uses two different keys, a public key and a private key. The public key can be shared with anyone and is used to encrypt data, while the private key is kept secret and is used to decrypt data.
