Encrypt Decrypt java object using Cipher and SealedObject object #Object Encryption Decryption in java Use SealedObject and Cipher class to Encrypt and decrypt the object. #What is SealedObject SealedObject encapsulate the original java object(it should implements Serializable). It use the cryptographic algorithm to seals the serialized content of the object. #What is Cipher This is a java class, use cryptographic algorithm for encryption and decryption. #Code For Object Encryption and Decryption
