    MODE_ECB 0

    API Level 3.0.0

    Electronic Code Book (ECB)

    This is the simplest encryption mode. Each plaintext block is directly encrypted into a ciphertext block, independent of any other block. This mode exposes frequency of symbols in your plaintext. Other modes (e.g. CBC) are recommended.

  • MODE_CBC 1

    API Level 3.0.0

    Cipher-Block Chaining

    Each ciphertext block depends on the current and all previous plaintext blocks. An Initialization Vector (IV) is required. The IV is a data block to be transmitted to the receiver. The IV can be made public, but it must be authenticated by the receiver and it should be picked randomly.

    KEY_PAIR_ELLIPTIC_CURVE_SECP224R1 0

    API Level 3.0.0

    224-bit secp224r1 Elliptic Curve

    Based on the algebraic structure of elliptic curves over finite fields. ECC requires smaller keys compared to non-ECC cryptography to provide equivalent security.

  • KEY_PAIR_ELLIPTIC_CURVE_SECP256R1 1

    API Level 3.0.0

    256-bit secp256r1 Elliptic Curve

    Instance Method Details

    createPublicKey(algorithm as Cryptography.HashAlgorithm, bytes as Lang.ByteArray) as Cryptography.Key

    Create a public Key object from bytes to be added to a KeyAgreement.

    If a public key is received from another party, it can be converted to a Key object using this method.

    Note:

    bytes is expected to be in little-endian byte order.

    Parameters:

    Since:

    API Level 3.0.0

    Throws:

    randomBytes(size as Lang.Number) as Lang.ByteArray

    Generates cryptographically random bytes.

    Parameters:

    • size(Lang.Number)

      The number of requested random bytes

    Returns:

    • Lang.ByteArray

      A ByteArray of the requested size filled with cryptographically random bytes
