Remarks

Cipher modes define the method in which data is encrypted. The stream cipher mode encodes data one bit at a time. The block cipher mode encodes data one block at a time. Although it tends to execute more slowly than stream cipher, block cipher is more secure. The following table describes the cipher mode for each of the EncryptionAlgorithm values.

Encryption Cipher Mode
RC2 64-bit block
RC4 stream

The Message Queuing message object's property ultimately provides access to operating system encryption levels.

Members

Member name Description
None No encryption.
Rc2 The value MQMSG_CALG_RC2. This is the default value for the encryption property of the Message Queuing application's message object.
Rc4 The value MQMSG_CALG_RC4. This corresponds to the less secure option for the encryption property of the Message Queuing application's message object.
