Matching DES Encryption in Java and VBScript

This page shows both Java JCE DES encryption examples, as well as examples using the Chilkat Encryption component in both Java and VBScript. Each of these examples produces identical output: The string: ABC123 encrypts to 6DA02B6AE1EA32D8 (as a hexidecimalized string) Java bytes-to-hex Encoding Utility Function public static String toHex (byte buf[]) { StringBuffer strbuf = new StringBuffer(buf.length * 2); int […]
