Hi All,

I am getting java.security.InvalidKeyException: Wrong key size in my code at statement 1.

Can anyone plz let me know what exactly is the problem.

Regards

Nikhil

I'm going to bet that the exeption actually occurs two lines below the one you marked. If you look at the javadocs for DESedeKeySpec you'll see that it needs a 24-byte argument for its constructor.
