DescriptionDecrypts container value with Blowfish engine.
The function expects you to use the same key as encryption and a container value produced by the Encryption.EncryptContainerBlowfish function. The function does not store the key, but once the data is decrypted it can decide if they make sense and return an error about a wrong key if data is looking strange.
For blowfish the key length is limited to 72 characters.
The plugin has no idea to verify if the key is correct. You need to make sure that you check if result is correct, e.g. by using a hash to verify if result is the expected value.
Deprecated. Please move to Encryption.Cipher for new projects.
