Overview

This snippet shows how the OpenSSL crypto library can be used to encrypt and decrypt descriptor content using a pass phrase. The example functions openc_encrypt() encrypts and openc_decrypt() decrypts a string of characters using Open C libcrypt.

Note: In order to use this code, you need to install Open C plug-in.

This snippet can be self-signed.

MMP file

The following libraries are required:

LIBRARY libc.lib
LIBRARY euser.lib
LIBRARY libcrypto.lib

Source file

#include <stddef.h>
#include <openssl/rc4.h>
#include <openssl/md5.h>
 
//#include<filelogger.h>
 
void openc_encrypt(int len, unsigned char* in, unsigned char* crypted, unsigned char*
password, int passlen)
{
unsigned char digest[MD5_DIGEST_LENGTH];
RC4_KEY key;
 
MD5(password, passlen, digest);
 
RC4_set_key(&key, MD5_DIGEST_LENGTH, digest);
RC4(&key, len, in, crypted);
}
 
void openc_decrypt(int len, unsigned char* in, unsigned char* decrypted, unsigned
char* password, int passlen)
{
unsigned char digest[MD5_DIGEST_LENGTH];
RC4_KEY key;
 
MD5(password, passlen, digest);
 
RC4_set_key(&key, MD5_DIGEST_LENGTH, digest);
RC4(&key, len, in, decrypted);
}

decryptedPtr.SetLength(buffer.Size());
 
openc_decrypt(buffer.Size(),

CleanupStack::PopAndDestroy(3); //decrypted, crypted, password
}

Postconditions

The example text has been encrypted with the pass phrase and after that decrypted with the same pass phrase using the example functions openc_encrypt() and openc_decrypt().
