Std.Crypto: Convert some parameters from VARSTRING to STRING or DATA

    Details

    • Type: Improvement
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: None
    • Fix Version/s: 7.10.0
    • Component/s: ECL Standard Library
    • Labels:
      None

      Description

      Various parameters within Std.Crypto are currently defined as VARSTRING but may actually contain binary values.  Since binary blobs may contain zero-value bytes, these parameters should be redefined.  Ideally, the change would not impact existing users.

      Attributes to review:

      • SymmetricEncryption(passphrase)
      • PublicKeyEncryption(passphrase)
      • PublicKeyEncryptionFromLFN(passphrase)
      • PublicKeyEncryptionFromBuffer(publicKeyBuff, privateKeyBuff, passphrase)
