JAVA Encryption and Decryption of URL Parameter

Java code for Encryption and Decryption of URL parameters.  In below code encrypting parameter as passed as token which is having (Fixed Text + Time stamp and Session ID) and encrypted by using Key by algorithm “AES/ECB/PKCS5Padding“.

Pre-requisite :

  • JAVA 8
  • Common-Codec-1.8.jar
import java.nio.charset.StandardCharsets;
import java.text.SimpleDateFormat;
import java.util.Date;

import javax.crypto.Cipher;
import javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec;

import org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64;
public class EncryptionDecryptionURLParam {
	public static final String FORMAT = "yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ssZ";
	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
		 SimpleDateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat(FORMAT);
	     String timestamp = sdf.format(new Date());

	     String constantValue="FacingIssuesOnIT";

		 String tokenStr = constantValue+"$"+timestamp+"/06$"+sessionId;


	    byte[] keyBytes = new byte[] { 0x00, 0x01, 0x02, 0x03, 0x04, 0x05, 0x06, 0x07, 0x08, 0x09,
	        0x0a, 0x0b, 0x0c, 0x0d, 0x0e, 0x0f };

	    Cipher cipher = Cipher.getInstance("AES/ECB/PKCS5Padding");

	    SecretKeySpec key = new SecretKeySpec(keyBytes, "AES");

	    // encryption url
	    cipher.init(Cipher.ENCRYPT_MODE, key);

	    byte[] cipherText = cipher.doFinal(tokenStr.getBytes());
        System.out.println("encrypted token size:" + cipherText.length);
        //Encode Character which are not allowed on URL
        String encodedTxt = Base64.encodeBase64URLSafeString(cipherText);

        System.out.println("EncodedEncryptedToken : " + encodedTxt);

	    //decryption url
        cipher.init(Cipher.DECRYPT_MODE, key);
        String decodeStr = URLDecoder.decode(
        System.out.println("URL Decoder String :"+decodeStr);
        //Decode URl safe to base 64
        byte[] base64decodedTokenArr = Base64.decodeBase64(decodeStr.getBytes());

       byte[] decryptedPassword = cipher.doFinal(base64decodedTokenArr);
        //byte[] decryptedPassword = cipher.doFinal(decodeStr.getBytes());
       String  decodeTxt=new String(decryptedPassword);
       System.out.println("Token after decryption: " + decodeTxt);
