i need a technique with which i should be able to enctrypt it using either key or without using key. I can not use the auto generated key. If anybody can send some code examples that would be very helpful to me.

import java.security.MessageDigest;

public static String Password(String data) {
        StringBuffer sb = new StringBuffer();

        try {
            MessageDigest messageDigest = MessageDigest.getInstance("SHA-512");
            byte[] digestBytes = messageDigest.digest();

            String hex = null;

            for (int i = 0; i < digestBytes.length; i++) {
                //Convert it to positive integer and then to Hex String

                hex = Integer.toHexString(0xFF & digestBytes[i]);

                //Append "0" to the String to made it exactly 128 length (SHA-512 alogithm)
                if (hex.length() < 2)
        catch (Exception ex) {

        return new String(sb);

I think the code posted is to digest the given text, i dont think you can get back the original text from digest. If you want to compare then try digesting the input and compare it with already digested text.
