FBB::CryptBuf(3bobcat) Base class for DecryptBuf and EncryptBuf FBB::CryptBuf(3bobcat)

NAME

FBB::CryptBuf - std::streambuf derived base class for DecryptBuf and EncryptBuf

SYNOPSIS

#include <bobcat/cryptbuf>
Linking option: -lbobcat -lcrypto

DESCRIPTION

This class is deprecated and will be removed from Bobcat in a future release. It inherits from FBB::EoiBuf. Classes using CryptBuf may use EoiBuf instead. CryptBuf’s member EVP_CIPHER const *md() can be implemented as follows:


#include <openssl/evp.h>
EVP_CIPHER const *md(char const *cipherName)
{
return EVP_CIPHER_fetch(0, cipherName, 0);
}

NAMESPACE

FBB
All constructors, members, operators and manipulators, mentioned in this man-page, are defined in the namespace FBB.

INHERITS FROM

EoiBuf (and thus from: std::streambuf)

PROTECTED CONSTRUCTOR

Analogously to std::streambuf only a protected constructor is available.

CryptBuf(char const *type, size_t bufSize):
The type is a null-terminated byte string specifying the de/encryption method. E.g., aes-128-cbc. For an overview see the encryptbuf(3bobcat) man-page. The bufSize parameter defines the initial size of the internally used buffer (defined by EoiBuf).

Copy and move constructors (and assignment operators) are not available.

PROTECTED MEMBER FUNCTION

All members of std:streambuf and EoiBuf are available, as FBB::CryptBuf inherits from these classes.

EVP_CIPHER const *md() const:
A pointer to the cipher information is returned.
