Member Function Documentation

size_t CipherModeBase::MinKeyLength ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Returns smallest valid key length.

Returns
the minimum key length, in bytes

Implements SimpleKeyingInterface.

Definition at line 47 of file modes.h.

size_t CipherModeBase::MaxKeyLength ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Returns largest valid key length.

Returns
the maximum key length, in bytes

Implements SimpleKeyingInterface.

Definition at line 48 of file modes.h.

size_t CipherModeBase::DefaultKeyLength ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Returns default key length.

Returns
the default (recommended) key length, in bytes

Implements SimpleKeyingInterface.

Definition at line 49 of file modes.h.

size_t CipherModeBase::GetValidKeyLength ( size_t  keylength) const
inlinevirtual

Returns a valid key length for the algorithm.

Parameters
keylengththe size of the key, in bytes
Returns
the valid key length, in bytes

keylength is provided in bytes, not bits. If keylength is less than MIN_KEYLENGTH, then the function returns MIN_KEYLENGTH. If keylength is greater than MAX_KEYLENGTH, then the function returns MAX_KEYLENGTH. if If keylength is a multiple of KEYLENGTH_MULTIPLE, then keylength is returned. Otherwise, the function returns a lower multiple of KEYLENGTH_MULTIPLE.

Implements SimpleKeyingInterface.

Definition at line 50 of file modes.h.

bool CipherModeBase::IsValidKeyLength ( size_t  keylength) const
inlinevirtual

Returns whether keylength is a valid key length.

Parameters
keylengththe requested keylength
Returns
true if keylength is valid, false otherwise

Internally the function calls GetValidKeyLength()

Reimplemented from SimpleKeyingInterface.

Definition at line 51 of file modes.h.

unsigned int CipherModeBase::OptimalDataAlignment ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Provides input and output data alignment for optimal performance.

Returns
the input data alignment that provides optimal performance

Reimplemented from StreamTransformation.

Reimplemented in AdditiveCipherTemplate< AbstractPolicyHolder< AdditiveCipherAbstractPolicy, CTR_ModePolicy > >.

Definition at line 53 of file modes.h.

unsigned int CipherModeBase::IVSize ( ) const
inlinevirtual

Returns length of the IV accepted by this object.

Returns
the size of an IV, in bytes
Exceptions
NotImplemented()if the object does not support resynchronization

The default implementation throws NotImplemented

Reimplemented from SimpleKeyingInterface.

Definition at line 55 of file modes.h.

virtual IV_Requirement CipherModeBase::IVRequirement ( ) const
pure virtual

Minimal requirement for secure IVs.

Returns
the secure IV requirement of the algorithm

Implements SimpleKeyingInterface.

Implemented in CBC_ModeBase, ECB_OneWay, CTR_ModePolicy, OFB_ModePolicy, and CFB_ModePolicy.
