Member Function Documentation

virtual void PK_Encryptor::Encrypt RandomNumberGenerator rng,
const byte *  plaintext,
unsigned int  plaintextLength,
byte *  ciphertext,
const NameValuePairs parameters = g_nullNameValuePairs
const [pure virtual]

encrypt a byte string

CiphertextLength(plaintextLength) != 0 (i.e., plaintext isn't too long)

size of ciphertext == CiphertextLength(plaintextLength)

Implemented in TF_EncryptorBase, DL_EncryptorBase< T >, and DL_EncryptorBase< SCHEME_OPTIONS::Element >.

BufferedTransformation * PK_Encryptor::CreateEncryptionFilter RandomNumberGenerator rng,
BufferedTransformation attachment = NULL,
const NameValuePairs parameters = g_nullNameValuePairs
const [virtual]

create a new encryption filter

The caller is responsible for deleting the returned pointer.

Encoding parameters should be passed in the "EP" channel.

Definition at line 564 of file cryptlib.cpp.

virtual unsigned int PK_CryptoSystem::MaxPlaintextLength unsigned int  ciphertextLength  )  const [pure virtual, inherited]

maximum length of plaintext for a given ciphertext length

This function returns 0 if ciphertextLength is not valid (too long or too short).

virtual unsigned int PK_CryptoSystem::CiphertextLength unsigned int  plaintextLength  )  const [pure virtual, inherited]

calculate length of ciphertext given length of plaintext

This function returns 0 if plaintextLength is not valid (too long).

virtual bool PK_CryptoSystem::ParameterSupported const char *  name  )  const [pure virtual, inherited]

this object supports the use of the parameter with the given name

some possible parameter names: EncodingParameters, KeyDerivationParameters

virtual unsigned int PK_CryptoSystem::FixedCiphertextLength  )  const [inline, virtual, inherited]

return fixed ciphertext length, if one exists, otherwise return 0

"Fixed" here means length of ciphertext does not depend on length of plaintext. It usually does depend on the key length.
