AesManaged.IV Property

Gets or sets the initialization vector (IV) to use for the symmetric algorithm.

Namespace:  System.Security.Cryptography
Assembly:  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
'Declaration
Public Overrides Property IV As Byte()

Property Value

Type: System.Byte()
The initialization vector to use for the symmetric algorithm

The following example demonstrates how to use the IV property when you decrypt an encrypted isolated storage file. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the AesManaged class.


Using aes = New System.Security.Cryptography.AesManaged()
    Dim deriveBytes As New Rfc2898DeriveBytes(decryptPassWordBox.Password, Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(PasswordSalt))
    aes.Key = deriveBytes.GetBytes(128 / 8)
    ' Get the initialization vector from the encrypted stream
    aes.IV = ReadByteArray(isoStoreStream)
    Dim cs As New CryptoStream(isoStoreStream, aes.CreateDecryptor(), CryptoStreamMode.Read)
    Dim reader As New StreamReader(cs, Encoding.Unicode)
    Try
        Dim retval As String
        retval = reader.ReadToEnd()
        reader.Dispose()
        cs.Dispose()
        Return retval
    Catch e As Exception
        Return e.ToString()
    End Try
End Using
