I now know that RSA Public/Private key can only encrypt very short input at once, but can anyone provide a way to encrypt any type of file(.txt, .phf, .exe, etc) with only the public/private key? I do not want to have additional AES key.

Here is my code, I am not getting the original content back after my encryption and decryption with the pair of public & private key. I do not care about how safe is my encryption or decryption, I just want the simple encrypt decrypt working on any input that it might take, no matter how long or large it is.

```
from Crypto.PublicKey import RSA
from Crypto import Random
random_generator = Random.new().read
key = RSA.generate(1024, random_generator)
public_key = key.publickey()
f = open('C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\jack.txt','r').read()
print 'original content: '+ f
enc_data = public_key.encrypt(f, 32)
print 'encrypted data: '
print enc_data
dec_data = key.decrypt(enc_data)
print 'decrypted data: '+ dec_data
```

Here is the output:

## Best Solution

RSA can only encrypt a limited amout of input. How much that is depends on the key size of RSA (1024-bit in your case) and the used padding. Everything bigger than that (128 byte when no padding is used and less if padding is used) and you cannot recover it anymore.

The solution is to use hybrid encryption.

AES encryption:

RSA encryption (use a proper padding like OAEP, because textbook RSA is horribly broken):

And only send

`msg`

and`ciphertext`

. The decryption is similar, but backwards, because you first have to recover the AES key from the RSA ciphertext. Don't forget to slice off the IV when decryption with AES.
