OpenSSL to encrypt/decrypt uses HEX string of KEY and IV.
Makes it easier to use when you are not using plain text.
It would be nice to have a flag for Key and IV values in crypto components to enable HEX string values.
Yes, one can ( and does ) convert HEX to String already before assigning the value but when doing some testing/dev stuff via IDE/GUI and I just want to copy/paste the Key/IV into the properties editor, sometimes a key/iv won't paste right and causes issues.
Nothing crazy, just an idea request.
