> Instead of throwing an exception when encountering a problem in processing an EncryptedKey,
we should instead generate a session key and attempt to decrypt the EncryptedData structure
instead (take a look at the DOM code here). This prevents timing attacks to see where the
error was in processing the key versus data.
