    Hi -

    Does anyone know if it is possible to encrypt things using AES with the iPhone SDK? I've looked at OpenSSL and the like, but haven't found much of anything in the way of private key encryption using AES. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

    AES is not an asymmetric cipher, so there are no "private" keys. Typically, when someone refers to AES with private keys, they are referring to a hybrid cryptosystem in which the key for AES is itself encrypted using an asymmetric cipher such as RSA or Elgamal.

    You're probably going to get it all wrong if you try to implement it now, so please read up on the theory. I suggest Applied Cryptography by Schneier (although it is a bit dated by now).

    Hi, Did you find the solution to encrypt/decrypt core data in an iPhone project.
