Interestingly, despite all the attacks and the decade old 
recommendation to not use PKCS1-v1_5 in new projects, it is still here 
instead of OAEP

The recommended algorithms are:

    * HMAC using SHA-256
    * RSASSA-PKCS1-v1_5 using SHA-256
    * ECDSA using P-256 curve and SHA-256
    * AES-CBC
