Examples

The following example shows how to use the Decrypt method to convert encrypted data to unencrypted data.

byte[] imageBuffer;
using (Stream cipherTextStream = File.OpenRead(encryptedFile))
{
    byte[] contentLengthByteBuffer = new byte[sizeof(Int32)];
    // Read the length of the source content file
    // from the first four bytes of the encrypted file.
    ReliableRead(cipherTextStream, contentLengthByteBuffer,
                 0, sizeof(Int32));

    // Allocate the clearText buffer.
    int contentLength =
        BitConverter.ToInt32(contentLengthByteBuffer, 0);
    imageBuffer = new byte[contentLength];

    // Allocate the cipherText block.
    byte[] cipherTextBlock =
        new byte[cryptoProvider.BlockSize];

    // decrypt cipherText to clearText block by block.
    int imageBufferIndex = 0;
    for ( ; ; )
    {   // Read cipherText block.
        int readCount = ReliableRead(
                            cipherTextStream,
                            cipherTextBlock, 0,
                            cryptoProvider.BlockSize);
        // readCount of zero is end of data.
        if (readCount == 0)
            break; // for

        // Decrypt cipherText to clearText.
        byte[] clearTextBlock =
            cryptoProvider.Decrypt(cipherTextBlock);

        // Copy the clearTextBlock to the imageBuffer.
        int copySize = Math.Min(clearTextBlock.Length,
                            contentLength-imageBufferIndex);
        Array.Copy(clearTextBlock, 0,
            imageBuffer, imageBufferIndex, copySize);
        imageBufferIndex += copySize;
    }
