I have my very private RSA key:

-----BEGIN PRIVATE KEY-----
MIIJQQIBADANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAASCCSswggknAgEAAoICAQDI0vCkxjyJQ7b7
MVJKKXVTFSH3yN5xWozV1pZ8grTTr6dL90bmeCHIw9PnsZRJWsAhstnSnLm1v7KE
kkNqFi2s+sBf1BSBDZ5onoWE0dtb3R2dG25AsYRj54Sd6rtX9U/2aF ... uNjei

yja709eeToSrwU6xoYArh7RnN3Qx
-----END PRIVATE KEY-----

I use keythereum to generate an ethereum wallet:

const privateKey = fs.readFileSync('my_private_key_file', 'utf8')
const password = 'myVerySecretPassword'

function generateWallet(privateKey, password){

    const dk = {
        privateKey: Buffer.from(privateKey, 'utf8'),
        salt: crypto.randomBytes(32),
        iv: crypto.randomBytes(16)
    }

    const options = {
        kdf: "pbkdf2",
        cipher: "aes-128-ctr",
        kdfparams: {
            c: 262144,
            dklen: 32,
            prf: "hmac-sha256"
        }
    }

    return keythereum.dump(
        password,
        dk.privateKey,
        dk.salt,
        dk.iv,
        options
    )
}

That's what I get back:

{
    address: 'c1cfd69deab90015dd456164d058f73abe3b80f4',
    crypto: {...},
    id: 'd94389ec-1e8a-4e95-a386-0a3be0900e13',
    version: 3
}

Now I want to start transacting from the address 0xc1cfd69deab90015dd456164d058f73abe3b80f4. How can I unlock it and set as a desired coinbase? The JSON RPC method parity_newAccountFromSecret accepts only hex, no more than 64-character long.
