Thank you all for your responses. Luckily the problem was more easy, as an
erlang *newbie* I wasn't pattern matching correctly against some value resulting
in different keys at the two entities (Erlang - Java).

For the record, in the system I'm building two mobile devices will communicate
encrypted with a session key, which they both hold, issued by the erlang server.
(Needham-Schroeder protocol) [0] The point is to avoid public-key cryptography
which is more "expensive" and to keep the environment of the communicating
counterparts closed to foreign ones, so I don't want to use TLS.
