Encryption Functions

Allows for the encryption and decryption of text data using symmetric AES encryption. This plug-in uses standard Java cryptography functions to expose expression functions for the encryption and decryption of data using AES.

Functions:

  • encryptvalue(): Encrypt plain text data using an AES encryption key stored in the Secure Credentials Store
  • decryptvalue(): Decrypt encrypted text data using an AES encryption key stored in the Secure Credentials Store

Features:

  • Supports up to 256-bit AES keys when JCE Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy is enabled
  • Backwards compatible with older versions of Java lacking support for >128-bit encryption keys

  • Hi Jussi,

    We are trying to use your plug in for AES 256 bit encryption. Our use case is such that Appian encrypts a value and shares it with external system, and the external system decrypts the value and persists in their data base.

    We noticed that every time we encrypt a value like let's say "123" with the same encryption key the encrypted value keeps changing. Is that normal because the external system is unable to decrypt it? When I am looking online at other encryption/decryption tools, as long as the value we are trying to encrypt and key remain same the encrypted value is also staying constant.

    Any help in this matter is much appreciated.

    Thank you
