Good morning Niko, I hope you're doing well. Please, notice that GCM mode
support is not a limitation of AG iOS, but a restriction from Apple.
If the document on
states that GCM is support, it pretty much relates to Android. If the
senteces are not clear enough, feel free to file a Jira
Answering your questions:
- Is GCM mode for AES encryption supported on iOS aerogear crypto module
(and the cordova plugin) ?
No. But, we are open for suggestions. In the future we plan to make
aerogear-ios-crypto pluggable. Into this way you're free to go with
CommonCrypto or whatever provider you want.
- If not, how difficult would it be to use the private API in iOS
CommonCrypto ? I didnt try it myself, i have just been reading the code....
I'd say, would take time and the only way I see today is plugging OpenSSL.
The reason why NaCl was choosen, was not only the fact of CommonCrypto not
supporting GCM, but also, because it's safer.
If you feel like, that should be reconsidered. Feel free to create a feature
request against https://issues.jboss.org/browse/agios. I hope it helps.
