        When I decrypt, there will be a decryption exception due to multiple version judgments.

        but,Remove the version judgment and normal results will be displayed.

        (Encrypted data & key & iv Encrypted data all identical)

        Encrypted Data from [NSUserDefaults standardUserDefaults]









        NSData* theData = [[[NSData alloc] initWithBase64EncodedString:userID options:NSDataBase64DecodingIgnoreUnknownCharacters]AES128DecryptWithKey: KEY withIV: IV];




        - (NSData *) AES128DecryptWithKey: (NSString *) _sKey withIV: (unsigned int) _iv {

          char keyPtr[kCCKeySizeAES128 + 1];

          bzero(keyPtr, sizeof(keyPtr));

          [_sKey getCString: keyPtr maxLength: sizeof(keyPtr) encoding: NSUTF8StringEncoding];


          NSUInteger dataLength = [self length];

          NSData *nsData;

          size_t bufferSize = dataLength + kCCBlockSizeAES128;

          void *buffer = malloc(bufferSize);

          void *iv = malloc(16);

          memset((void *)iv, _iv, 16);


          size_t numBytesDecrypted = 0;

          CCCryptorStatus cryptStatus = CCCrypt( kCCDecrypt,





                                                                             iv ,                                                                                                                 

                                                                             [self bytes], dataLength,

                                                                             buffer, bufferSize,



          if (cryptStatus == kCCSuccess)

               nsData = [NSData dataWithBytes: buffer length: numBytesDecrypted];





          return nsData;

          I’m sorry to say that this code has numerous problems, but at the code level and at the cryptographic level (using a C string as-is as a cryptographic key is very poor form).  I can help you fix the code problems but I encourage you to discuss the cryptographic aspects of this with a security professional.

          Anyway, on the code front, I recommend that you look at the CryptoCompatibility sample code, which shows how to do AES encryption and decryption in a way that’s compatible with other major cryptographic libraries.  If you can’t work out from that, please post a code snippet and a test vector, that is, the inputs to the function and the expected outputs.
