AES for 128, 192 and 256 bit keys in the following modes: CBC, CFB with 128-bit shift, CFB with 1-bit shift, CFB with 8-bit shift, CTR, ECB, and OFB.

EVP_aes_128_cbc_hmac_sha1(), EVP_aes_256_cbc_hmac_sha1()

Authenticated encryption with AES in CBC mode using SHA-1 as HMAC, with keys of 128 and 256 bits length respectively. The authentication tag is 160 bits long.

WARNING: this is not intended for usage outside of TLS and requires calling of some undocumented ctrl functions. These ciphers do not conform to the EVP AEAD interface.

EVP_aes_128_cbc_hmac_sha256(), EVP_aes_256_cbc_hmac_sha256()

Authenticated encryption with AES in CBC mode using SHA256 (SHA-2, 256-bits) as HMAC, with keys of 128 and 256 bits length respectively. The authentication tag is 256 bits long.

WARNING: this is not intended for usage outside of TLS and requires calling of some undocumented ctrl functions. These ciphers do not conform to the EVP AEAD interface.

AES for 128, 192 and 256 bit keys in CBC-MAC Mode (CCM), Galois Counter Mode (GCM) and OCB Mode respectively. These ciphers require additional control operations to function correctly, see the “AEAD Interface” in EVP_EncryptInit(3) section for details.

AES key wrap with 128, 192 and 256 bit keys, as according to RFC 3394 section 2.2.1 (“wrap”) and RFC 5649 section 4.1 (“wrap with padding”) respectively.

EVP_aes_128_xts(), EVP_aes_256_xts()

AES XTS mode (XTS-AES) is standardized in IEEE Std. 1619-2007 and described in NIST SP 800-38E. The XTS (XEX-based tweaked-codebook mode with ciphertext stealing) mode was designed by Prof. Phillip Rogaway of University of California, Davis, intended for encrypting data on a storage device.

XTS-AES provides confidentiality but not authentication of data. It also requires a key of double-length for protection of a certain key size. In particular, XTS-AES-128 (EVP_aes_128_xts) takes input of a 256-bit key to achieve AES 128-bit security, and XTS-AES-256 (EVP_aes_256_xts) takes input of a 512-bit key to achieve AES 256-bit security.

Return Values

These functions return an EVP_CIPHER structure that contains the implementation of the symmetric cipher. See EVP_CIPHER_meth_new(3) for details of the EVP_CIPHER structure.
