Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ Algorithm()

Algorithm::Algorithm ( bool  checkSelfTestStatus = true)

Interface for all crypto algorithms.

Parameters
checkSelfTestStatusdetermines whether the object can proceed if the self tests have not been run or failed.

When FIPS 140-2 compliance is enabled and checkSelfTestStatus == true, this constructor throws SelfTestFailure if the self test hasn't been run or fails.

FIPS 140-2 compliance is disabled by default. It is only used by certain versions of the library when the library is built as a DLL on Windows. Also see CRYPTOPP_ENABLE_COMPLIANCE_WITH_FIPS_140_2 in config.h.

Member Function Documentation

◆ AlgorithmName()

virtual std::string Algorithm::AlgorithmName ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Provides the name of this algorithm.

Returns
the standard algorithm name

The standard algorithm name can be a name like AES or AES/GCM. Some algorithms do not have standard names yet. For example, there is no standard algorithm name for Shoup's ECIES.

Note
AlgorithmName is not universally implemented yet.

◆ AlgorithmProvider()

virtual std::string Algorithm::AlgorithmProvider ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Retrieve the provider of this algorithm.

Returns
the algorithm provider

The algorithm provider can be a name like "C++", "SSE", "NEON", "AESNI", "ARMv8" and "Power8". C++ is standard C++ code. Other labels, like SSE, usually indicate a specialized implementation using instructions from a higher instruction set architecture (ISA). Future labels may include external hardware like a hardware security module (HSM).

Generally speaking Wei Dai's original IA-32 ASM code falls under "SSE2". Labels like "SSSE3" and "SSE4.1" follow after Wei's code and use intrinsics instead of ASM.

Algorithms which combine different instructions or ISAs provide the dominant one. For example on x86 AES/GCM returns "AESNI" rather than "CLMUL" or "AES+SSE4.1" or "AES+CLMUL" or "AES+SSE4.1+CLMUL".

Note
Provider is not universally implemented yet.
