1. API Description

Domain name for API request: kms.tencentcloudapi.com.

u200dThis API u200dis used to decrypt ciphertext using post-quantum cryptography (PQC) algorithm, and return the plaintext.

A maximum of 20 requests can be initiated per second for this API.

We recommend you to use API Explorer
Try it
API Explorer provides a range of capabilities, including online call, signature authentication, SDK code generation, and API quick search. It enables you to view the request, response, and auto-generated examples.

2. Input Parameters

The following request parameter list only provides API request parameters and some common parameters. For the complete common parameter list, see Common Request Parameters.

Parameter Name Required Type Description
Action Yes String Common Params. The value used for this API: PostQuantumCryptoDecrypt.
Version Yes String Common Params. The value used for this API: 2019-01-18.
Region No String Common Params. This parameter is not required for this API.
CiphertextBlob Yes String The ciphertext data to be decrypted.
EncryptionPublicKey No String PEM-encoded public key (2048-bit RSA/SM2 key), which can be used to encrypt the Plaintext returned. If this field is left empty, the Plaintext will not be encrypted.
EncryptionAlgorithm No String Asymmetric encryption algorithm. It is used in combination with EncryptionPublicKey to encrypt the returned data. u200dValues: SM2 u200d(Return the ciphertext in the format of "C1C3C2"), SM2_C1C3C2_ASN1 (Return the ciphertext in the format of "C1C3C2 ASN1"), RSAES_PKCS1_V1_5, RSAES_OAEP_SHA_1, RSAES_OAEP_SHA_256. It defaults to SM2 if it's not specified.

3. Output Parameters

Parameter Name Type Description
KeyId String Globally unique CMK ID
PlainText String If EncryptionPublicKey is left empty, a Base64-encoded ciphertext will be returned. To get the plaintext, you need to decode the ciphertext first.
If EncryptionPublicKey is passed in, this field u200dcontains the Base64-encoded ciphertext after asymmetric encryption by using the public key in EncryptionPublicKey To get the plaintext, you need to first decode the Base64 format, and then decrypwith the private key corresponding with the public key. The private key is uploaded by the user.
RequestId String The unique request ID, which is returned for each request. RequestId is required for locating a problem.
