    Fix SCA vulnerability when using PVK and MSBLOB key formats
    This commit addresses a side-channel vulnerability present when
    PVK and MSBLOB key formats are loaded into OpenSSL.
    The public key was not computed using a constant-time exponentiation
    This issue was discovered and reported by the NISEC group at TAU Finland.
