Wrapper for the Forge library that implements several cryptographic algorithms for ciphers, PKI, and message digests.

Currently, this wrapper only exposes APIs for the AES cipher algorithm.

How to use it

Here's a brief tutorial on how to use the library.

  1. Use the InitForgeLibrary action to load the script, usually in the OnApplicationReady event.
  2. Use the GenerateKeyAndIV action to generate the encryption key and iv necessary to use the algorithm.
  3. Store them safely and locally on the device using the Key Store Plugin.
  4. Use EncryptAES and DecryptAES actions to encrypt and decrypt the values.


What’s new (1.0.2)

1. There is a static entity for the Algorithm which can be used as an input so that a specific encryption type will be used. i.e. AES-CBC, 3DES-ECB, etc

2. Instead of initializing manually the script, the CheckForgePlugin is used so that it will check if it has already loaded or not, if not, then it will load the script.

3. Some other utilities which the script (forge bundle) can provide.
