If you work with different types of encrypted data it is often quite useful to have a utility available from which you can utilize to encrypt a String to a specific encryption format.
I find it particularly useful to isolate each available encryption object into a single Helper / Utility class to help facilitate encryption requests; essentially providing a wrapper for all encryption objects.
The Encryption utility is an all static class which is intended to provide a solution for centralizing access to encryption classes. The Encryption utility simply wraps all encryption types available in a Flex Application and provides a single static method for encrypting a String to the specified encryption type.
Using the Encryption utility is simple and straightforward as one might expect. The following examples demonstrate a typical use-case in which a String; “test”, is encrypted utilizing each defined encryption type:
So if you need an easy to use, centralized location from which you can conveniently call up to encrypt a String, feel free to utilize the Encryption utility.
