BlockTransformation Class Reference

#include <cryptlib.h>

Inheritance diagram for BlockTransformation:

Algorithm Clonable BlockCipher SimpleKeyingInterfaceImpl< BlockCipher, BTEA_Info > AlgorithmImpl< SimpleKeyingInterfaceImpl< BlockCipher, BTEA_Info >, BTEA_Info > List of all members.

Detailed Description

interface for the data processing part of block ciphers

Classes derived from BlockTransformation are block ciphers in ECB mode (for example the DES::Encryption class), which are stateless, and they can make assumptions about the memory alignment of their inputs and outputs. These classes should not be used directly, but only in combination with a mode class (see CipherModeDocumentation in modes.h).
