Cryptocx v7 User Guide


TripleDESGenerateKey Method

This is the method that you use to generate a 56 bit DES Key.



Generates a DES key using a specified input as the starting point.


x = object.TripleDESGenerateKey

The syntax of the TripleDESGenerateKey method has these parts:

Part Description
x A string that becomes the DES Key after the method has executed.
object A Cryptocx v7 control.


You must specify the InputText property to use as the starting point for generating a new DES key.

Once generated the DES key is base64 encoded such that you can easily store it for example in database fields.

You need to run this method 3 times using different InputText properties as starting points to get the 3 keys to use with any of the 3DES methods of Cryptocx.



Example Sample Visual Basic Code to generate a DES Key:


'' Generate a DES Key

Dim Cryptocx As New EasyByte_Software.Cryptocxv7

Cryptocx.LicenseKey = "DEMO"

Cryptocx.InputText = "Some Starting text, blah...."
Des3Key1.Text = Cryptocx.TripleDESGenerateKey
