Hi,
I want a component (better if was open source or free) that do the AES encryption.
Besat Regards.

or the long dissapeared aldos implementation: http://www.ciuly.com/delphi/basicSecurity/cryptography/aes/index.html

For ciuly,
I want to use the same key for another application, is there a way to use a hex key?
ie : i want your methods for decrypt and encrypt to take a hex key and i parse it as a string.
Regards.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I'm not sure I understand your question. a hex key, like 0e3a579bc ? if so, that is just a subset of the possible key characters so of course it can be done. but since you are saying hex .. I am thinking maybe you want to do something else, so better just give a clear example ;)

If i have a key 'c03de8d73d1c03de8d73d1c03de8d73d1' and i want to use it in your procedure as
EncryptAESStreamECB( Source, 0, 'c03de8d73d1c03de8d73d1c03de8d73d1', Dest );
How i can do it??
Regards.

you actually need to put the key in a (for example) TAESKey128 like:

var key128:TAESKey128;
begin
  FillChar(Key128, SizeOf(Key128), 0);
  Move(PChar(key)^, Key128, Min(SizeOf(Key128), Length(key)));

  EncryptAESStreamECB(source, 0, key128, dest);  
end;

dest will hold the crypted data.

to crypt/decrypt a string and return a (binary) sting, use the following functions:

function AES_crypt(data, key: string): string;
var key128:TAESKey128;
    count:integer;
    source, dest:TStringStream;
begin
  source:=TStringStream.Create(data);
  dest:=TStringStream.Create('');

  source.WriteString(data);
  source.Position:=0;
  count:=source.Size;
  dest.Write(count, sizeof(count));

  FillChar(Key128, SizeOf(Key128), 0);
  Move(PChar(key)^, Key128, Min(SizeOf(Key128), Length(key)));

  EncryptAESStreamECB(source, 0, key128, dest);

  dest.Position:=0;
  result:=dest.ReadString(dest.size);

  dest.Free;
  source.Free;
end;

function AES_decrypt(data, key: string): string;
var key128:TAESKey128;
    count:integer;
    source, dest:TStringStream;
begin
  source:=TStringStream.Create(data);
  dest:=TStringStream.Create('');

  source.Position:=0;
  source.ReadBuffer(count, sizeof(count));

  FillChar(Key128, SizeOf(Key128), 0);
  Move(PChar(key)^, Key128, Min(SizeOf(Key128), Length(key)));

  DecryptAESStreamECB(source, Source.Size-source.Position, key128, dest);

  dest.Size:=count;
  dest.Position:=0;
  result:=dest.ReadString(dest.size);

  dest.Free;
  source.Free;
end;

the above code was adapted from the demo in the zip I gave you.

I use it but the cipher output is differ from my another application that use AES with the same key!!
My another application implemented in java and use a standard AES from SUN.
What do you think the problem is??

Is there a way to convert the string into array of bytes?
Thanks.

2266180Commented:
well, I gave you an example for a 128 bit key. tehre is also a 192 bit and a 256 bit key ... which one does your java program use?

easiest way of getting an array of bytes is to modify the function to return an array of bytes and read that from the stream directly.

also, since you didn't cleared up the hex part: is the hex key a binary key, displayed as hex or is it indeed a simple hex string as it is? because if teh key is a binary key, then you need to convert the hex to binary first and then use it.

why a B grade? I do not agree with this resolution. I have given you a good solution but you didn't give me enough information so that I can help you.
I'd like you to reconsider.

I give you a B grade because i use an AES algorithm standard from SUN 128 bit but the it different from your work as i was explain so my problem doesn't solved

2266180Commented:
your problem is not solved because you failed to communicate with me that information. I asked you questions and you didn't answer. it is not my fault that you didn't asnwer so that I can help.
If we cannot get to an agreement, I am in favour of getting a moderator to assist on the issue.

Here is how things *should work* on EE:

Any expert MUST have the chance to earn an A grade. Just because you are the one that did not give sufficient information or asked for clarifications, that is not a reason to give a B grade. I asked a lot of questions and you did not even bother to reply to them. It is your fault that you did not get a good enough answer, not mine.

Hence, you are the 7th person to make it on my blacklist. Which basically means that from now on and forever I will ignore your every question.
If you treat other experts like this, that follow a similar policy as myself, you will soon find yourself with little or no experts to answer your questions.

This is just a notice. No need to reply as I unsubscribed from this question.

Enjoy.
