comment Encryption with “constant” initialization vector considered harmful
Do i get it right: Using AES/CBC/*Padding with an identical, known IV on two short strings of lets say ~10 bytes, where one of them can be very easily deduced/guessed (an item name like "user" in the example above) will reveal the value of item value?

comment Encryption with “constant” initialization vector considered harmful
I meant to improve the question :-) "vault" means simply a password vault or encrypted preference implementation, where "key" and "value" are model properties (->preferences), not encryption related. I changed this in the example. Only "iv" is encryption related.
