TripleDESCryptoServiceProvider: IV (let)


Sets the Initialization Vector to be used.

 Public Property Let IV(
	  ByRef RHS ( ) As Byte )


[ByRef] Byte. The new IV to use.


If several blocks of same plain text are encrypted, the ciphered data could all be the same as well. Using an Initialization Vector can prevent same plain text blocks to reproduce the same ciphered blocks.

This can be generated using the GenerateIV method, or a new one will be generated if one hasnt been set when this property is accessed.

The array must be 8 bytes in length.
