I have already answered this question in a previous thread. It is not
very helpful if you repeat asking the same or similar questions in
different threads, especially if you don't take notice of the answers
given. I will repeat it once here:

load_pub_key requires a file name, not the contents of the file.
So use rsa = M2Crypto.RSA.load_pub_key('my_key.public.pem') and leave
the open line out.
