DefaultFileEncryption Property

The default encryption mode to use when creating files and alternate streams.

Syntax

 cbvault.getDefaultFileEncryption([callback])
 cbvault.setDefaultFileEncryption( defaultFileEncryption, [callback])

Default Value

0

Callback

The 'callback' parameter specifies a function which will be called when the operation completes (or an error is encountered). If the 'callback' parameter is not specified, then the method will block and will not return until the operation completes (or an error is encountered).

The callback for the getDefaultFileEncryption([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err, data){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'data' is the value returned by the method.

The callback for the setDefaultFileEncryption([callback]) method is defined as:

function(err){ }

'err' is the error that occurred. If there was no error, then 'err' is 'null'.

'err' has 2 properties which hold detailed information:

err.code
err.message

Remarks

This property specifies the default encryption mode that the class should use when creating files and alternate streams. Valid values are:

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_NONE0x0Don't use encryption.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_DEFAULT0x1Use default encryption (CBFSSTORAGE_EM_XTS_AES256_PBKDF2_HMAC_SHA256).

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_XTS_AES256_PBKDF2_HMAC_SHA2560x2Use AES256 encryption with PBKDF2 key derivation based on a HMAC_SHA256 key hash.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM256_PBKDF2_HMAC_SHA2560x3Use event-based custom 256-bit encryption with PBKDF2 key derivation based on a HMAC_SHA256 key hash.

256-bit (32-byte) block size.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM512_PBKDF2_HMAC_SHA2560x4Use event-based custom 512-bit encryption with PBKDF2 key derivation based on a HMAC_SHA256 key hash.

512-bit (64-byte) block size.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM1024_PBKDF2_HMAC_SHA2560x5Use event-based custom 1024-bit encryption with PBKDF2 key derivation based on a HMAC_SHA256 key hash.

1024-bit (128-byte) block size.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM256_CUSTOM_KEY_DERIVE0x23Use event-based custom 256-bit encryption with custom key derivation.

256-bit (32-byte) block size.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM512_CUSTOM_KEY_DERIVE0x24Use event-based custom 512-bit encryption with custom key derivation.

512-bit (64-byte) block size.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM1024_CUSTOM_KEY_DERIVE0x25Use event-based custom 1024-bit encryption with custom key derivation.

1024-bit (128-byte) block size.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM256_DIRECT_KEY0x43Use event-based custom 256-bit encryption with no key derivation.

256-bit (32-byte) block size. Useful for cases where the password is an identifier for an external key and should not be used for key derivation.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM512_DIRECT_KEY0x44Use event-based custom 512-bit encryption with no key derivation.

512-bit (64-byte) block size. Useful for cases where the password is an identifier for an external key and should not be used for key derivation.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_CUSTOM1024_DIRECT_KEY0x45Use event-based custom 1024-bit encryption with no key derivation.

1024-bit (128-byte) block size. Useful for cases where the password is an identifier for an external key and should not be used for key derivation.

CBFSSTORAGE_EM_UNKNOWN0xFFUnidentified or unknown encryption.

Applications that use custom encryption must implement at least the DataDecrypt and DataEncrypt events; and certain custom encryption modes may also require that the HashCalculate or KeyDerive event be implemented as well. Please refer to the Encryption topic for more information.

Applications that set this property to a value other than CBFSSTORAGE_EM_NONE (the default) should also specify a default encryption password using the DefaultFilePassword property.
