       Crypto::setEncryptionKey - Set application secret key


       Void setEncryptionKey( [Int] key )


       key  The  new  encryption  key.  This  must be an array of integers, containing exactly 32
       integers between 0 and 255. An Exception will be thrown if the  parameter  is  unsuitable.
       For  security,  encryption  keys  should  be  generated  from a good-quality random number


       Sets the application secret key used by Crypto.encode (3kaya) and Crypto.decode (3kaya) to
       a  new value for the remainder of program execution. You can obtain the key from a variety
       of sources (e.g. a flat file, or a database entry) - the easiest way is probably  to  read
       32 bytes from a file with IO.getChar (3kaya)
        Using  an external application key removes the requirement that the application binary be
       strongly protected (by moving the requirement to whatever the key source is,  of  course).
       This may be useful for installing common web application binaries to a shared folder.

       Web  applications  should call this function from within their webconfig function to avoid
       unpredictable results. Also to avoid unpredictable results,  this  function  may  only  be
       called  once  per  program run, and must be called before any other function that uses the
       key. An Exception will be thrown if this is called for a second time or too late.

       Note: While an unscrupulous application writer could use this function to ensure that  the
       effective  application key could not be changed by kaya-rekey , they could find far easier
       and less easily detectable ways to put a backdoor into any  application  that  users  were
       unable to recompile or verify.
