Keyshare generator

Automatically generate test keys of various lengths, and split into components. KCVs are automatically provided for each component and the whole key.

Please not that the key generator is not cryptographically secure. It is only suitable for generating test keys.








Num Components Parity Bits





The KCV is the "Key Check Value" for the key, calculated by assuming the key/components are 3DES keys, and encrypting a string of binary zeroes. The KCV is the first six hex digits of the resulting ciphertext.
