The decrypt() method decrypts some encrypted data.

Usage

decrypt(algorithm, key, data)

Parameters

NameTypeDescription
algorithmAesCtrParams, AesCbcParams, or AesGcmParams objectDefines the algorithm to use and any extra-parameters. The values given for the extra parameters must match those used in the corresponding [encrypt] call.
keyCryptoKeyThe key to use for decryption.
dataArrayBuffer, TypedArray, or DataViewThe encrypted data to be decrypted (also known as ciphertext).

Return Value

A Promise that resolves to a new ArrayBuffer containing the decrypted 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
