We have provided an API to our clinet, which they use to encrypt the string and they will send the encrypted string as request parameter to our end.
On receiving the string we will decrypt the string before processing further.
But while decrypting we receive the below error.

Client use JDK 1.6 to encrypt and we use JDK 1.5 at our end to decrypt



javax.crypto.BadPaddingException: Given final block not properly padded
at com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE_h.b(DashoA12275)
at com.sun.crypto.provider.SunJCE_h.b(DashoA12275)
at com.sun.crypto.provider.AESCipher.engineDoFinal(DashoA12275)
at javax.crypto.Cipher.doFinal(DashoA12275)
at com.sbi.crypto.aes.EncryptAES.decrypt(EncryptAES.java:84)



Line 84 is byte [] ciphertext=cipher.doFinal(results);

Below is the code to encrypt


Below is the code to decrypt




Kindly help us.
Thanks in advance.

Either the base64 encoded ciphertext is getting corrupted in some way or more likely the wrong key is being used for decryption. For test purposes you should dump the bytes of the key after reading them.

P.S. Using the bytes of the key as the IV is not considered good practice.
P.P.S. your code
can be replaced by the single line

P.P.P.S. That exception handling is poor. If you fail to read the key then it is fatal and you cannot continue!
