MEMBERS

setkey

see struct skcipher_alg

setauthsize

Set authentication size for the AEAD transformation. This function is used to specify the consumer requested size of the authentication tag to be either generated by the transformation during encryption or the size of the authentication tag to be supplied during the decryption operation. This function is also responsible for checking the authentication tag size for validity.

encrypt

see struct skcipher_alg

decrypt

see struct skcipher_alg

init

Initialize the cryptographic transformation object. This function is used to initialize the cryptographic transformation object. This function is called only once at the instantiation time, right after the transformation context was allocated. In case the cryptographic hardware has some special requirements which need to be handled by software, this function shall check for the precise requirement of the transformation and put any software fallbacks in place.

exit

Deinitialize the cryptographic transformation object. This is a counterpart to init, used to remove various changes set in init.

geniv

see struct skcipher_alg

ivsize

see struct skcipher_alg

maxauthsize

Set the maximum authentication tag size supported by the transformation. A transformation may support smaller tag sizes. As the authentication tag is a message digest to ensure the integrity of the encrypted data, a consumer typically wants the largest authentication tag possible as defined by this variable.

chunksize

see struct skcipher_alg

base

Definition of a generic crypto cipher algorithm.

DESCRIPTION

All fields except ivsize is mandatory and must be filled.
