SOLVED What are the AES specifications for the AES encryption in C4D SDK ?

Hi

I'm developing a plugin that will AES encryption / decryption, I am planning to use the C4D AES class

referenced in this link : https://developers.maxon.net/docs/Cinema4DCPPSDK/html/class_a_e_s.html#ac4796420dbb7d8f2c3b1305f131762cc

but I need to know the specifications of the AES encryption / decryption in C4D SDK, this is because the data will be processed later on a server that uses AES from a 3rd party library, I want to make sure that what I encrypt in C4D sdk can be decrypted on the server and to achieve that I have to know the specifications of the AES class in order to use them on the server too.

I couldn't find any useful information on the web.

Hi without more information from your side it's very hard to help you. Would it be possible to share some code?

any body ?

Does this post help?

The AES library in our SDK uses ECB, which does not seem to need an init vector, and we don't provide one.

Hi @C5D first of all welcome in the PluginCafe community 🙂

This is the old way of doing and may be removed in the future, instead you should use the maxon::StreamConversions::AesEncoder() as demonstrated in ZipFile OpenEncrypted for read not working

Thanks guys.

I just have some results that can't be decrypted back so I assumed there is some missing step.
