I need some advice on decrypt and encrypt the following using 3 DES.

My key is = 0D5892DAF8D91A3DC8B5645D4AB92AC8
Padding = ANSI X9.23
IV = 0000000000000000
Data Input = Hex
Value to encrypt = 040037BFCFECADBF

I had a look at the samples in the forum but I cant get my code to work properly. I am getting the following error : "Invalid key material"

  Crypto : TElSymmetricCrypto;
  KM : TElSymmetricKeyMaterial;
  KeyStr : string = '0D5892DAF8D91A3DC8B5645D4AB92AC8';
  IVStr : string = '0000000000000000';
  InBuf, OutBuf: ByteArray;
  OutSize : integer;
  OutSize := 0;
  Crypto := TElSymmetricCrypto.Create(SB_ALGORITHM_CNT_3DES, cmECB);
  KM := TElSymmetricKeyMaterial.Create();
    KM.Key := BytesOfString(KeyStr);
    KM.IV := BytesOfString(IVStr);
    Crypto.Padding := cpANSIX923;
    InBuf := BytesOfString('040037BFCFECADBF');

    Crypto.KeyMaterial := KM;
    OutSize := Length(InBuf) * 6;
    SetLength(OutBuf, OutSize);
    Crypto.Encrypt(@InBuf[0], Length(InBuf), @OutBuf[0], OutSize);
    //SetLength(OutBuf, OutSize);

    Not_base64.Text :=  SBUtils.StringOfBytes(OutBuf);
   // edtNew_encrypt.Text := SBUtils.StringOfBytes(OutBuf);
    edtNew_encrypt.Text := SBEncoding.Base64EncodeArray(OutBuf, false);
    //Writeln(BinaryToString(@OutBuf[0], OutSize));

Good day,

Yes I am only evaluating your product to see if 3DES encryption/ decryption will work for us, but at this stage I cant see if it will work for us because I cant get your demo to work.

For 3DES you must have key size of exactly 24 bytes and IV size of exactly bytes. Your values are different, and that's why you get the exception.

Your IV is 16 bytes, and looks like BASE16-encoded binary value of the IV. So far so good (after you decode it).

Now I see that your key is 32 bytes, which is not even a BASE16-encoded value of 24-byte key. I don't know what kind of transform you need to apply to get 24-byte key that matches the key of the other side.

Sincerely yours
Eugene Mayevski
