The encrypt() method encrypts some data.

Usage

encrypt(algorithm, key, data)

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
algorithmAesCtrParams, AesCbcParams, or AesGcmParams objectDefines the algorithm to use and any extra-parameters.
keyCryptoKeyThe key to use for encryption.
dataArrayBuffer, TypedArray, or DataViewThe data to be encrypted (also known as "plaintext").

Return Value

A Promise that resolves to a new ArrayBuffer containing the encrypted data.

Throws

TypeDescription
InvalidAccessErrorRaised when the requested operation is not valid with the provided key. For instance when an invalid encryption algorithm is used, or a key not matching the selected algorithm is provided.
OperationErrorRaised when the operation failed for an operation-specific reason. For instance, if the algorithm size is invalid, or errors occurred during the process of decrypting the ciphertext.

Example

import { crypto } from "k6/experimental/webcrypto";
export default async function () {
const plaintext = stringToArrayBuffer("Hello, World!");
/**
* Generate a symmetric key using the AES-CBC algorithm.
*/
const key = await crypto.subtle.generateKey(
{
name: "AES-CBC",
length: 256,
},

/**
* Encrypt the plaintext using the AES-CBC key with
* have generated.
*/
const iv = crypto.getRandomValues(new Uint8Array(16));
const ciphertext = await crypto.subtle.encrypt(
{

);
/**
* Decrypt the ciphertext using the same key to verify
* that the resulting plaintext is the same as the original.
