Encrypting/decrypting a data stream.
This example demonstrates how to encrypt (using a symmetric encryption algorithm such as AES, Blowfish, RC2, 3DES, etc) a large amount of data. The data is passed in chunks to one of the encrypt methods: EncryptBytes, EncryptString, EncryptBytesENC, or EncryptStringENC. (The method name indicates the type of input (string or byte array) and the return type (encoded string or byte array). The FirstChunk and LastChunk properties are used to indicate whether a chunk is the first, middle, or last in a stream to be encrypted. By default, both FirstChunk and LastChunk equal True -- meaning that the data passed is the entire amount.
Note: You may feed the data in chunks that are smaller than the block size of the encryption algorithm (AES and Twofish have a block size of 16 bytes. DES, 3DES, Blowfish, and RC2 have a block size of 8 bytes. ARC4 is a streaming encryption algorithm and does not have a block size, but technically you can think of it as having a block size of 1 byte.) The Chilkat Crypt component will buffer the data as required. If an amount of data smaller than the block size is passed such that the entire amount is buffered, then an empty string is returned. The buffered data will be added to the data passed in subsequent calls. When the final data chunk is passed, it is padded to the encryption algorithm's block size (according to the PaddingScheme property) and the encryption is complete. Decrypting in chunks is identical to encrypting in chunks. Note: This example uses new features available in the pre-release, or any official new version released after 17-October-2007.
