Re: [iaik-jce] Keygeneration for Rijndael



You should upgrade to 2.61, which includes a KeyGenerator for Rijndael.
As with all good symmetric algorithms any random string makes a good key.

Betreff: [iaik-jce] Keygeneration for Rijndael


Hello,

I want to integrate the new AES algorithm Rijndael in our application. We
have the Version 2.6 of IAIK-JCE and it is not possible to generate a key
with the methods

KeyGenerator key_gen = KeyGenerator.getInstance("Rijndael");
SecretKey new_key = (iaik.security.cipher.SecretKey)
key_gen.generateKey();

the only possibility is to generate a key with

symKey = new iaik.security.cipher.SecretKey(sk, "RAW");

which is not recomended in the documentation.
Any hints how to generate a key of good quality?

Thanks,

    Reiner
