Hello All,

I need to encrypt an Object using DES.  Please let me know is this possible if it is possible with java jdk tool kit

thanks

To use the crypto package you must have JCE.
This is contained automatically with jdk1.4 (and greater).
This is downloadable from www.java.sun.com for previous jdk (see java Sun and JCE package)

If you want to build your own the implementation of DES algorithm you must study it before all and you can even not use the crypto package of JCE.


Bye, Giant.

here's an example, i hope it helps...i had to implement it from scratch for an assigment...but using the javax package is so much more simpler, so use what is available to you.

//EXAMPLE

import javax.crypto.KeyGenerator;
import javax.crypto.SecretKey;
import javax.crypto.spec.IvParameterSpec;
import javax.crypto.Cipher;

public class SymmetricCipherTest {
  private static byte[] iv =
      { 0x0a, 0x01, 0x02, 0x03, 0x04, 0x0b, 0x0c, 0x0d };

  private static byte[] encrypt(byte[] inpBytes,
      SecretKey key, String xform) throws Exception {
    Cipher cipher = Cipher.getInstance(xform);
    IvParameterSpec ips = new IvParameterSpec(iv);
    cipher.init(Cipher.ENCRYPT_MODE, key, ips);
    return cipher.doFinal(inpBytes);
  }

  private static byte[] decrypt(byte[] inpBytes,
      SecretKey key, String xform) throws Exception {
    Cipher cipher = Cipher.getInstance(xform);
    IvParameterSpec ips = new IvParameterSpec(iv);
    cipher.init(Cipher.DECRYPT_MODE, key, ips);
    return cipher.doFinal(inpBytes);
  }

  public static void main(String[] unused) throws Exception {
    String xform = "DES/ECB/PKCS5Padding";
    // Generate a secret key
    KeyGenerator kg = KeyGenerator.getInstance("DES");
    kg.init(56); // 56 is the keysize. Fixed for DES
    SecretKey key = kg.generateKey();

    byte[] dataBytes =
        "J2EE Security for Servlets, EJBs and Web Services".getBytes();

    byte[] encBytes = encrypt(dataBytes, key, xform);
    byte[] decBytes = decrypt(encBytes, key, xform);

    boolean expected = java.util.Arrays.equals(dataBytes, decBytes);
    System.out.println("Test " + (expected ? "SUCCEEDED!" : "FAILED!"));
  }
}
