Anybody could help me converting this obj-c code to kotlin (in thread):
let attributes: [CFString: Any] = [
kSecAttrKeyType: kSecAttrKeyTypeRSA,
kSecAttrKeySizeInBits: 2048,
kSecAttrKeyClass: kSecAttrKeyClassPublic
var error: Unmanaged<CFError>?
guard let secKey = SecKeyCreateRandomKey(
attributes as CFDictionary, &error) else
throw error!.takeRetainedValue() as Error
or just any guidelines how to get those CFx variables from kotlin side
Hey, thanks a lot Russell! Had some prior problems before, checking this out and it helped me a bit. I'd like your help again if you don't mind - I converted the code but it still not working correctly: obj-c (works)
Copy code

    NSData *data = [[NSData alloc] initWithBase64EncodedString:k options:0];
    NSDictionary *attributes = @{ (id)kSecAttrKeyType: (id)kSecAttrKeyTypeRSA, (id)kSecAttrKeyClass: (id)kSecAttrKeyClassPublic };
    SecKeyRef key = SecKeyCreateWithData((__bridge CFDataRef) data, (__bridge CFDictionaryRef) attributes, nil);

Maybe you have some suggestions what I am doing wrong?
Guessing there's an error of some sort happening, but I couldn't say what. Try passing a pointer instead of null for the third parameter and see if you can read out what's happening
Thanks again Russell. Error message is
The operation couldn't be completed. (OSStatus error -50 - Unsupported key type: (null))
. The problem can be fixed like this (couldn't think of a way to write this in words):
Copy code
val decodedKey = NSData.create("MIIBI...", 0)
... rest of the same code
but I want it passed as a variable. Is there a way to do that?
I'm not sure why that would happen. Maybe a type inference issue? Try explicitly casting to
