We need to perform signing request using Private key

Hello Team,

We need to signing the message with private key of the sender and verify the message to the public key of the sender. For signing purpose we don't want to implement public key of the sender. We tried it with private key of the sender without configuring the public key of the sender but when we verified the message that time we are getting "base 64 decode of certificate error ".

Please find attached screenshot for the same.

    Thanks a lot.
