comment How often does RSA-OAEP have a leading zero?
@TBridges42 A key that's one bit short would have the expected number of bytes, yes. But it's unclear to me whether the file with the problematic length even contains a key (and if it does, what makes you sure that it's an RSA key). At that level of remove, it's difficult to know what the vendor did wrong, what your customer is perhaps not reporting faithfully and completely, and what you might be mixing up.

Did you mean bytes where you wrote bits? A 128-bit RSA key would not bring any security, a 1024-bit key is as yet unbroken but should be at least scheduled for replacement.
