represents encrypted data generated by Encrypt.


  • EncryptedObject[]["prop"] yields properties of the encrypted object. Possible properties include:
  • "Data"encrypted data as a ByteArray object
    "InitializationVector"initialization vector
    "OriginalForm"the form of expression provided to Encrypt
  • EncryptedObject[]["Properties"] gives a list of available properties.
  • Normal[EncryptedObject[]] gives a ByteArray[] object containing raw bytes suitable for transmission to external programs. (Note that for most methods, decryption requires both the key and the initialization vector.)
  • Possible values for the "OriginalForm" property are "Expression", "String", and "ByteArray". The setting for "OriginalForm" determines the form of expression produced by Decrypt when applied to the EncryptedObject.
