Provide keyed symmetric encryption capability

    Details

      Description

      Currently the only symmetric encryption/decryption capability in EncryptContent processor is via password-based encryption (PBE). We should add support for key-based encryption. This is far more common in systems communication that are not reading from/writing to "human-protected" data where password memorization is important.

      I recommend providing AES/CBC/PKCS5Padding with 128, 192, and 256 bit keys as well as AES/GCM/NoPadding with the same key sizes for authenticated encryption with associated data (AEAD) capabilities.
