AES Encryption-Rijndael Block Cipher to Symbian OS

From Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This code snippet provides an implementation of the AES Encryption-Rijndael Block Cipher on Symbian. The implementation can be used for encrypting/decrypting on Symbian, but if you want to decrypt on another platform you should encrypt using the Symbian Cryptography APIs .
