IssueWill RSA BSAFE Crypto-C work with international character sets? Is Crypto-C is compatible with double-byte character sets?
If given files whose characters are encoded using a double-byte character set (namely Unicode) or other double-byte input, will a RSA BSAFE Crypto-C algorithm still work as it does with single-byte encoded character sets?
ResolutionSince BSAFE works on the byte-level, moving to Unicode should not be a problem. In other words, BSAFE does its operations on the blocks of bytes and is not concerned how you interpret the resulting bytes or how the incoming bytes are encoded.
