I recently upgraded old version of SecureBlackbox to 5.0. Everything works fine except PGP decryption with RSA key (2048 bit). It stopped working and generates message "Unsupported stream cipher algorithm". Does anyone know why?

Thank you

0) Have you upgraded your license key?
1) Please ensure that you are using the latest release version (5.1 build 112).
2) Try running the sample application included with SecureBlackbox and see if it exposes the same problem.

Sincerely yours

0) Yes, we upgraded the license key
1) Yes, we are running version
2) Sample application is experiencing the same issue

I can encrypt using RSA and sample application (PGPFiles) but decryption fails (key was generated by PGPKeys).

Thank you,

Hi! Could you create ticket on our helpdesk system, and attach there your public key, and sample encrypted file, which produces an error?

Most likely, your secret key is encrypted with IDEA cipher. Since SBB 5.1 IDEA functionality is distributed as a separate package due to specifics of its patent. Please read the instructions on enabling IDEA in the Patents section of the readme.html file installed with the SecureBlackbox.

Thank you for your responses. It looks like IDEA is the issue in my case. In addition, I opened a ticket.
