Type TTwofishInitVector

Initialization Vector (IV) for Twofish.

 

Unit

EEncrypt

 

Syntax

 

Code (Delphi)

TTwofishInitVector = packed array[0..15]of Byte;

 

Remarks

Use TwofishInitIV to obtain new random initialization vector. Pass the obtained value to TwofishEncrypt and store it with encrypted data - to be passed into TwofishDecrypt later.

 

Note

Initialization vector (IV) is a fixed-size input to a cryptographic primitive that is typically required to be random or pseudorandom. Randomization is crucial for encryption schemes to achieve semantic security, a property whereby repeated usage of the scheme under the same key does not allow an attacker to infer relationships between segments of the encrypted message.
