Hi - I am attempting to write a GitHub App, and ran into something ambiguous. The PEM private key generated for the App’s use isn’t documented as to what format it is in (PEMs can be PKCS#1, PKCS#8, etc). This can matter for certain libraries, so it would be useful information to know for sure.
According to my research, I think the key generated is PKCS#1 (https://tls.mbed.org/kb/cryptography/asn1-key-structures-in-der-and-pem)
- Could someone more familiar with GitHub Apps confirm this?
- What would be the best way to get a suggestion to the apps/documentation team specifically to add to the documentation what format it is to save future app developers a couple hours? If the doc is tucked into a GitHub repo somewhere I failed to find, I’d be more than happy to contribute a pull request to help!
Thanks for the great work - otherwise so far the process has been one of the better-documented I’ve worked through
