Procedure TEADestroyKey

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page   

Fills TEA key with zeros.

 

Unit

EEncrypt

 

Syntax

 

Code (Delphi)

procedure TEADestroyKey(

var AKey: TTEAKey

);

 

Parameters

AKey [in]

TEA key to be wiped.

 

Remarks

While calling this function is not strictly required (as TEA key does not hold any allocated resources which would require cleanup), but we strongly recommend to call this function for every TEA key once you have finished working with it.

 

Tip

Since default password (returned by TEADefaultKey) is always stored in memory - there is not much meaning to wipe default key after using it.
