In the OE Docs,
SECURITY-POLICY:SYMMETRIC-ENCRYPTION-IV = ?
To set this, you need to pass a raw value to this.
SECURITY-POLICY:SYMMETRIC-ENCRYPTION-IV = myRaw.
I'm told the IV is a 16 character value ie. "1234567890123456".
How does this get converted to RAW data type?
Thanks in advance.
There's a kb entry for converting char to raw,
Title: "What's the proper way to convert a CHARACTER datatype to a RAW data type ?"
Technically, an encryption IV's value is a set of raw (8-bit) data bytes, which must be exactly the same when you use the ENCRYPT and DECRYPT functions. The number of bytes used as an IV by the ABL is related to the algorithm type you are using. If you are using DES or DES3 the IV size is 8 bytes. If you are using AES the IV size is 16 bytes.
Example of generating a new IV that can be included as static IV data for ENCRYPT/DECRYPT functions:
/* GenIV.p */
/* Generate the initial 16 byte IV value encode it for use in some source code module. */
MESSAGE "DEF VAR cIV AS CHAR INITIAL " +
STRING(BASE64-ENCODE(GENERATE-UUID)) + ":U NO-UNDO.".
/* Encrypt.p */
/* Use the IV value generated by the GenIV.p module */
DEF VAR cIV AS CHAR INITIAL "pAEAZCpRWZzeEeWtvkhTwe==":u NO-UNDO.
DEF VAR rIV AS RAW NO-UNDO.
rIV = BASE64-DECODE(cIV).
IF ( "DES" = SUBSTRING(SECURITY-POLICY:SYMMETRIC-ENCRYPTION-ALGORITHM,1,3) )
/* Only 8 bytes are necessary */
rIV = GET-BYTES(rIV, 8, 8).
SECURITY-POLICY:SYMMETRIC-ENCRYPTION-IV = rIV.
/* ENCRYPT/DECRYPT(...). code here*/
Thanks, I'll give each a try.
