Thanks

Use TElSymmetricCrypto. Unfortunately there are no samples available at the moment.

My experiment:

SBSymmetricCrypto.TElRC2SymmetricCrypto cryptObj = new SBSymmetricCrypto.TElRC2SymmetricCrypto();

SBSymmetricCrypto.TElSymmetricKeyMaterial km = new SBSymmetricCrypto.TElSymmetricKeyMaterial();
km.GenerateIV(32);
km.Generate(32);

cryptObj.KeyMaterial = km; // here it crashes "Invalid key material"

Please do you know why the km.Valid property is false (what probably causes the crash) ? Or what to do better ?

Thx

when I removed line
km.GenerateIV(32);

it helped.
So ok, no problem at the moment ... thx

Another problem:

string text = "something to Encrypt";
byte[] textB = SBUtils.Unit.BytesOfString(text);

SBSymmetricCrypto.TElRC2SymmetricCrypto cryptObj = new SBSymmetricCrypto.TElRC2SymmetricCrypto();

string key = "abcd";
byte[] keyB = SBUtils.Unit.BytesOfString(key);

SBSymmetricCrypto.TElSymmetricKeyMaterial km = new SBSymmetricCrypto.TElSymmetricKeyMaterial();
km.Key = keyB;

cryptObj.KeyMaterial = km;

byte[] outB = new byte[100];
int outSize = 100;
cryptObj.Encrypt(textB, 0, textB.Length, ref outB, 0, ref outSize);

on the last line I get: Attempted to divide by zero.
I am using Win XP, VS2003, SBB 4.4.0.94.
Please would you advice me where is the problem ?

I created my own simple SymmetricCrypto class. Not good, but working.
