I'm trying to encrypt a string on iOS using 3des and then encrypt the key & iv from that using RSA (with a provided public key) which will then get decrypted in .NET. It doesn't seem to be working, is there a guide somewhere for what kind of configurations/settings I have to pay attention to so the result works in .NET?

Which part is causing the trouble -- the RSA or the underlying symmetric encryption?

The .NET application that takes the encrypted string is giving me error after decrypting the string (it's complaining that the content of the string isn't what it should be). This app is a black box so I can't really tell if it's the encryption is at fault or if I am not sending the right data. I want to rule out the encryption part. So is there any settings I should pay attention to? For example: I read somewhere that littleEndian should be set to NO. .NET Framework version is 4.x

@chilkat I have narrowed down the issue to RSA. The resulting encrypted string is totally different from what a .NET app outputs. The 3DES part is fine.
