This nuget package can be used to encrypt/decrypt a file or a string. It uses “Rijndael Alogrithm” for encryption and decryption.

Package: UiPathTeam.Encryption.Activities
Author: @Priya_Dubey

Encrypt PDF
Encryption / Decryption of API using UI Path

Question to the author @Priya_Dubey Since it uses Rjindael Algorithm, it needs a cipher key, but I don’t see any option to set one.

Does it use a fixed key to encrypt/decrypt strings? This may be a dumb question, but isn’t that dangerous?


@Renan_Kataoka Yes you are right.At this moment the cipher key is fixed in the package itself. however i will be updating the package with a new version that will be available very soon in Gallery repository.




Thanks for the reply. Waiting forward for the update.


I wanted to know if texts or files can be encrypted using AES128,AES256,AES192,CAST5,BLOWFISH algorithms. Kindly guide me for all of them in case these algorithms can be worked upon in UIPath.


@Priya_Dubey : Do you have news on the indicated update? The activity itself works perfect, but I would need to individualize the cipher key for security reasons. Regards, Florian


Hi @fzi
Please find the updated package here which has configurable cipher key. https://go.uipath.com/component/file-and-text-encryption
