Hello. For my science fair project, I developed a protocol that utilizes hashing as a means of ongoing Cryptographic Key generation. Using existing blocks in Netsblox, I cannot seem to recreate or adapt hashing in any capacity from its origins in Java. I tried to use the custom block function thinking that it would let me code Java into a block directly, but it required me to use existing Netsblox blocks. I have checked as many libraries as I could find, but none of them had what I needed. The closest I could find was an obscure "encrypt" block.
My questions are:
- Is it possible to use Java to code in blocks in Netsblox? Or do I have to use only existing blocks? If I have to use existing blocks, can you point me in the direction how to do this (resources to read etc)?
- If it is not possible to use Java specifically, does anyone know how to code, or has already coded, a hashing algorithm that I can use in Netsblox?
- If Netxblox is not the appropriate platform for what I want to do, is there another, better, platform that will allow me to code for the hashing protocol I have developed?
