Encrypt

Encrypts text or binary data.

Properties

  • Input type

    Either Text (default) or Binary.

    If Text is selected, the data property will accept a string type, and the "Input encoding" property will be shown.
    If Binary is selected the data property will accept a list of bytes or Base64 encoded string.

  • Input encoding

    Default, ANSI, ASCII, EBCDIC, Mac, OEM, Unicode, UTF7, UTF8.

    This property will appear only when Text is selected for the Input type property, and controls which codepage to use when converting the data to encrypt to an array of bytes.

  • Data

    The data to encrypt. The type of the value must correspond to the option selected for the Input type property.

  • Algorithm

    AES (default), Triple DES or RSA.

    The encryption algorithm to use.

  • Use passphrase

    Allows the AES encryption key and initialisation vector to be specified manually or generated from a passphrase and salt.

  • Passphrase

    Passphrase used to generate AES key. Only shown if "Use passphrase" property is checked.

  • Passphrase salt

    Passphrase salt, optional. Only shown if "Use passphrase" property is checked.

  • Key

    AES encryption key. Only shown if "Use passphrase" property is unchecked.

  • IV

    AES encryption initialisation vector. Only shown if "Use passphrase" property is unchecked.

  • Load key from file

    Allows RSA key to be specified manually or loaded from a certificate file.

  • Certificate file path

    Path to the certificate file containing RSA key. Only visible if "Load key from file" is checked.

  • Certificate password

    The password protecting the certificate file. Only visible if "Load key from file" is checked.

  • Exponent

    The public exponent of the RSA public key. Only visible if "Load key from file" is unchecked.

  • Modulus

    The modulus function of the RSA public key. Only visible if "Load key from file" is unchecked.
