Detailed Description

Provides Encryption and Decryption typedefs used by derived classes to implement a symmetric cipher.

Each class derived from this one defines two types, Encryption and Decryption, both of which implement the SymmetricCipher interface. Two types of classes derive from this class: stream ciphers and block cipher modes. Stream ciphers can be used alone, cipher mode classes need to be used with a block cipher. See CipherModeDocumentation for more for information about using cipher modes and block ciphers.
