    Public key not received properly

    Possible reason, that Item Web API can be disabled by default. You should enable it in instanceUrl\Website\App_Config\Include\Sitecore.ItemWebApi.config

    Simply replace the node

    <site name="website">
            <patch:attribute name="itemwebapi.mode">Off</patch:attribute>
            <patch:attribute name="itemwebapi.access">ReadOnly</patch:attribute>
            <patch:attribute name="itemwebapi.allowanonymousaccess">false</patch:attribute>
    <site name="website">
            <patch:attribute name="itemwebapi.mode">StandardSecurity</patch:attribute>
            <patch:attribute name="itemwebapi.access">ReadOnly</patch:attribute>
            <patch:attribute name="itemwebapi.allowanonymousaccess">true</patch:attribute>

    If you want your anonymous user to have readonly access for the website.
    You can find more details here: item web api/sitecore_item_web_api_developer_guide_sc65-66-a4.pdf, 'Security' chapter.
