AWSKMSDecryptRequest

Objective-C

@interface AWSKMSDecryptRequest

Swift

class AWSKMSDecryptRequest
  • Ciphertext to be decrypted. The blob includes metadata.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, strong) NSData *_Nullable ciphertextBlob;

    Swift

    var ciphertextBlob: Data? { get set }
  • Specifies the encryption algorithm that will be used to decrypt the ciphertext. Specify the same algorithm that was used to encrypt the data. If you specify a different algorithm, the Decrypt operation fails.

    This parameter is required only when the ciphertext was encrypted under an asymmetric KMS key. The default value, SYMMETRIC_DEFAULT, represents the only supported algorithm that is valid for symmetric encryption KMS keys.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic) AWSKMSEncryptionAlgorithmSpec encryptionAlgorithm;

    Swift

    var encryptionAlgorithm: AWSKMSEncryptionAlgorithmSpec { get set }
  • Specifies the encryption context to use when decrypting the data. An encryption context is valid only for cryptographic operations with a symmetric encryption KMS key. The standard asymmetric encryption algorithms and HMAC algorithms that KMS uses do not support an encryption context.

    An encryption context is a collection of non-secret key-value pairs that represent additional authenticated data. When you use an encryption context to encrypt data, you must specify the same (an exact case-sensitive match) encryption context to decrypt the data. An encryption context is supported only on operations with symmetric encryption KMS keys. On operations with symmetric encryption KMS keys, an encryption context is optional, but it is strongly recommended.

    For more information, see Encryption context in the Key Management Service Developer Guide.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, strong) NSDictionary<NSString *, NSString *> *_Nullable encryptionContext;

    Swift

    var encryptionContext: [String : String]? { get set }
  • A list of grant tokens.

    Use a grant token when your permission to call this operation comes from a new grant that has not yet achieved eventual consistency. For more information, see Grant token and Using a grant token in the Key Management Service Developer Guide.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, strong) NSArray<NSString *> *_Nullable grantTokens;

    Swift

    var grantTokens: [String]? { get set }
  • Specifies the KMS key that KMS uses to decrypt the ciphertext.

    Enter a key ID of the KMS key that was used to encrypt the ciphertext. If you identify a different KMS key, the Decrypt operation throws an IncorrectKeyException.

    This parameter is required only when the ciphertext was encrypted under an asymmetric KMS key. If you used a symmetric encryption KMS key, KMS can get the KMS key from metadata that it adds to the symmetric ciphertext blob. However, it is always recommended as a best practice. This practice ensures that you use the KMS key that you intend.

    To specify a KMS key, use its key ID, key ARN, alias name, or alias ARN. When using an alias name, prefix it with "alias/". To specify a KMS key in a different Amazon Web Services account, you must use the key ARN or alias ARN.

    For example:

    • Key ID: 1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    • Key ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:key/1234abcd-12ab-34cd-56ef-1234567890ab

    • Alias name: alias/ExampleAlias

    • Alias ARN: arn:aws:kms:us-east-2:111122223333:alias/ExampleAlias

    To get the key ID and key ARN for a KMS key, use ListKeys or DescribeKey. To get the alias name and alias ARN, use ListAliases.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, strong) NSString *_Nullable keyId;

    Swift

    var keyId: String? { get set }
