BouncyCastle Experiment Good Results #2

September 27, 2007

Good news from my BouncyCastle Crypto Libs.

I’ve just finished the MultiHasher Experiment, cause a lack of documentation I wasn’t sure of I/O functions but Peter Dettman clarified me something:

for the Byte encoding of the string, could be used the Classical Encoder class of System.ComponentModel, in this way:

InputBuffer = Encod.GetBytes(YourString);

Is used UTF8Encoding instead of ASCII Encoding:

textBox1.Text = Encod.GetString(Hex.Encode(outBuffer));

See you to the next post 🙂

First Experiments with BouncyCastle CryptoLib

September 25, 2007

In these day I’m experimentig a promising library which implements many Crypto Algorithms, called BouncyCastle (which is for .NET, and I’m coding in C#).

Library, seems to be complete and to have good implementations of Common Algorithms, EllipticCurveCryptography, Certifications, OpenPGP, OpenSSL.

A part a little leak of performances in ECIES algorithm, seems to work great.

The big problem is that Hex Conversion functions have some problem, for example Hex.Decode() , fails when the string passed have an odd lenght.

To dayI’ve sent an email to the coders, hope in a fast reply, if i discover how to solve also other minor problems (actually no time to mention all) i’ll post here the fixed piece of code 😉

See you to the next post 🙂
