I am using the Det_Encrypt/Det_Decrypt actions and I need to understand what is the password meaning.
What I am trying to do is implement these actions in java using the bouncy castle library.
In my application the server will encrypt some info and I will need to decrypt it and dispaly it.
Can you explain what the password do?
CryptoAPI has a Java implementation, so you can just open it using your Eclipse and take it from there.
This is also available on my Github (with an added implementation for Python).
You say "If you want to add some encrypted field as searchable..." Does that mean on the entity?
Basically I need to be able to do Entity.EncryptedColumn like '%keyword%'
How would I get that to work?
Unfortunately, this mode of encryption would only support equality searches, not wildcard.
Since the data is encrypted, we can only check for equality. There will be no further information we can use as to the structure of the encrypted data.
There may be other techniques that are able to achieve that, but the one I used in my component is not one such technique.
Thank you Ricardo!
Is it possible to encrypt binary data? It looks like only text is possible.
Is there anything to convert binary to text?
