Method Detail

encrypt

void encrypt(byte[] plaintext,
             int plaintextOffset,
             byte[] ciphertext,
             int ciphertextOffset)
             throws CryptoTokenException
Encrypts a block of the given plaintext into a block of ciphertext.

Parameters:
plaintext - A byte array containing the input that is to be encrypted.
plaintextOffset - The starting offset, or initial byte position, of the data within the input array.
ciphertext - A byte array to hold the ciphertext output from the method.
ciphertextOffset - The starting offset, or initial byte position, of the data within the output array.
Throws:
CryptoTokenException - Thrown when an problem occurs with the crypto token or the crypto token is invalid.

"<cipher name>[_<keyBitLength>[_<blockBitLength>[_<numberOfRounds>]]][/<mode>[/<padding>]]"

Returns:
A String that represents the name of the algorithm.
