const mbedtls_cipher_base_t* mbedtls_cipher_info_t::base

Struct for base cipher information and functions.

Definition at line 289 of file cipher.h.

unsigned int mbedtls_cipher_info_t::block_size

The block size, in Bytes.

int mbedtls_cipher_info_t::flags

Bitflag comprised of MBEDTLS_CIPHER_VARIABLE_IV_LEN and MBEDTLS_CIPHER_VARIABLE_KEY_LEN indicating whether the cipher supports variable IV or variable key sizes, respectively.

Definition at line 283 of file cipher.h.

unsigned int mbedtls_cipher_info_t::iv_size

IV or nonce size, in Bytes. For ciphers that accept variable IV sizes, this is the recommended size.

Definition at line 277 of file cipher.h.

unsigned int mbedtls_cipher_info_t::key_bitlen

The cipher key length, in bits. This is the default length for variable sized ciphers. Includes parity bits for ciphers like DES.

mbedtls_cipher_mode_t mbedtls_cipher_info_t::mode

The cipher mode. For example, MBEDTLS_MODE_CBC.

const char* mbedtls_cipher_info_t::name

Name of the cipher.

Definition at line 271 of file cipher.h.

mbedtls_cipher_type_t mbedtls_cipher_info_t::type

Full cipher identifier. For example, MBEDTLS_CIPHER_AES_256_CBC.
