How to encrypt and decrypt data using DES in java?

Description generates the sysmetric key using DES algorithm. Key size assigned here is 64 bits. It works only for the key size of 64 bits. 56 bits is mentioned in the coding remaining 8bits is accessed from inbuilt package. Encryption and decryption method is written based on DES algorithm. Message to encrypt can be given as input. Encrypted and decrypted text is displayed in message dialog.

Sample Code
  • Filename:

import javax.swing.*;
import javax.crypto.Cipher;
import javax.crypto.KeyGenerator;
import javax.crypto.SecretKey;
import javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec;
import java.util.Random ;
class DES {
byte[] skey = new byte[1000];
String skeyString;
static byte[] raw;
String inputMessage,encryptedData,decryptedMessage;

public DES() {
try {

inputMessage=JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null,"Enter message to encrypt");
byte[] ibyte = inputMessage.getBytes();
byte[] ebyte=encrypt(raw, ibyte);
String encryptedData = new String(ebyte);
System.out.println("Encrypted message "+encryptedData);
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Encrypted Data "+"\n"+encryptedData);

byte[] dbyte= decrypt(raw,ebyte);
String decryptedMessage = new String(dbyte);
System.out.println("Decrypted message "+decryptedMessage);

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Decrypted Data "+"\n"+decryptedMessage);
catch(Exception e) {

void generateSymmetricKey() {
try {
Random r = new Random();
int num = r.nextInt(10000);
String knum = String.valueOf(num);
byte[] knumb = knum.getBytes();
skeyString = new String(skey);
System.out.println("DES Symmetric key = "+skeyString);
