How to Encrypt in Node.js and Decrypt in C#

16 Feb 2015

Are you trying to send messages to a .NET application from node.js and you want to encrypt them?

You can find here a simple example to accomplish it.

Encrypt in node.js:

var crypto = require('crypto');
var key = '00000000000000000000000000000000'; //replace with your key
var iv = '0000000000000000'; //replace with your IV
var cipher = crypto.createCipheriv('aes256', key, iv)
var crypted = cipher.update(authorizationKey, 'utf8', 'base64')
crypted +='base64');

Decrypt with C#:

string keyString = "00000000000000000000000000000000"; //replace with your key
string ivString = "0000000000000000"; //replace with your iv

byte[] key = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(keyString);
byte[] iv = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(ivString);

using (var rijndaelManaged =
        new RijndaelManaged { Key = key, IV = iv, Mode = CipherMode.CBC })
            rijndaelManaged.BlockSize = 128;
            rijndaelManaged.KeySize = 256;
            using (var memoryStream =
                   new MemoryStream(Convert.FromBase64String(AuthorizationCode)))
            using (var cryptoStream =
                   new CryptoStream(memoryStream,
                       rijndaelManaged.CreateDecryptor(key, iv),
                return new StreamReader(cryptoStream).ReadToEnd();

Hope this helps.
