Function TEAInitSessionKey

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page   

Generates random TEA key.







Code (Delphi)

function TEAInitSessionKey: TTEAKey;


Return value

Random TEA key.


You do not need to free/release/dispose this key - it does not contain any allocated memory. However, it is strongly recommended to call TEADestroyKey function once you have finished working with key - to erase it with zeros.


This value is never the same.



This function generates random TEA key. This key can be used as session key for asymmetric encryption. See description of RSAEncrypt for more details.



Do not use RTL's Random function to create random TEA key manually. RTL implementation is a simple pseudo-random generator and it does not generate cryptographically-strong random data.


Use TEADeriveKey function to derive symmetric TEA key from string password or any other arbitrary "seed" data.
