    Java Crypto Exception

      Hello All -

      When I run the following program, i get the below exception. Any help would be appreciated..

      import java.security.*;
      import javax.crypto.*;
      import javax.crypto.spec.IvParameterSpec;
      import javax.crypto.spec.SecretKeySpec;
      import sun.misc.*;

      public class AESDecryption {

           private static final String ALGO = "AES";
           /*Padding scheme - CBC with PKCS5Padding - Initialization Vector is used with AES*/
           private static final String ALGOParams = "/CBC/PKCS5Padding";
           /*Key byte stream*/
           private static byte[] keyValue;
           /*Initialization Vector*/
           private static byte[] iv;

           * decrypt method will take a encrypted string, key and IV in string format and
           * return the decrypted string.
           public static String decrypt(String encryptedData, String keyString, String ivString) throws Exception {
                /*convert key and IV in String format to byte array*/
                stringKeystoByteArray(keyString, ivString);
                /*Generate the key using the keyvalue specified*/
                Key key = generateKey();
                /*Get Cipher with AES/CBC/PKCS5Padding*/
                Cipher c = Cipher.getInstance(ALGO+ALGOParams);
                /*Initialize the Cipher*/
                c.init(Cipher.DECRYPT_MODE, key, new IvParameterSpec(iv));

                /*Decode the encrypted string using the BASE64 Decoder*/
                byte[] decordedValue = new BASE64Decoder().decodeBuffer(encryptedData);
                /*Decrypt the decoded encrypted string*/
                byte[] decValue = c.doFinal(decordedValue);

                return new String (decValue);

           * The stringKeystoByteArray method will take the comma separated, hexadecimal, String representation
           * of the key and the IV and convert each of them to byte arrays.
           private static void stringKeystoByteArray(String keyString, String ivString){

                /*Split the comma separated key and iv*/
                String keyArray [] = keyString.split(",");
                String ivArray [] = ivString.split(",");

                /*instantiate key and iv*/
                keyValue = new byte[keyArray.length];
                iv = new byte[ivArray.length];

                /*convert each hexadecimal string value to a byte and assign to key and iv*/
                for (int i=0; i< keyArray.length; i++)
                     keyValue[i] = (byte)Integer.parseInt(keyArray, 16);
                for (int i=0; i< ivArray.length; i++)
                     iv[i] = (byte)Integer.parseInt(ivArray[i], 16);           
           * Generates the Key for the Cipher
           private static Key generateKey() throws Exception {

                Key key = new SecretKeySpec(keyValue, ALGO);
                return key;
