gnutls_cipher_encrypt2 — API function


#include <gnutls/crypto.h>

int gnutls_cipher_encrypt2(gnutls_cipher_hd_t handle, const void * ptext, size_t ptext_len, void * ctext, size_t ctext_len);


gnutls_cipher_hd_t handle
is a gnutls_cipher_hd_t type
const void * ptext
the data to encrypt
size_t ptext_len
the length of data to encrypt
void * ctext
the encrypted data
size_t ctext_len
the available length for encrypted data


This function will encrypt the given data using the algorithm specified by the context. For block ciphers the ptext_len must be a multiple of the block size. For the supported ciphers the encrypted data length will equal the plaintext size.


Zero or a negative error code on error.
