    • Type: New Feature
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major

      Description

      The EncryptContent Processor current supports AES_CBC as an option for the Encryption Algorithm property. This option translates to the use of AES/CBC/PKCS7Padding as the cipher algorithm for encryption or decryption.

      Supporting decryption using AES/CBC/NoPadding will allow integration with external systems requiring the use of that particular cipher algorithm. Encryption support for AES/CBC/NoPadding is not recommended due to potential padding vulnerabilities in AES-CBC as well as the requirement for padding input to match the required cipher block size.
