Crypt::OpenPGP::CFB - PGP Cipher Feedback Mode
my $key = foo bar;
my $cipher = Crypt::Blowfish->new( $key ); # for example
my $cfb = Crypt::OpenPGP::CFB->new( $cipher );
my $plaintext = this is secret!;
my $ct = $cfb->encrypt( $plaintext );
my $pt = $cfb->decrypt( $ct );
Crypt::OpenPGP::CFB implements the variant of Cipher Feedback mode
that PGP uses in its encryption and decryption. The key difference
with PGP CFB is that the CFB state is resynchronized at each
encryption/decryption. This applies both when encrypting secret key
data and in symmetric encryption of standard encrypted data. More
differences are described in the OpenPGP RFC, in section 12.8
(OpenPGP CFB mode).
Typically you should never need to directly use Crypt::OpenPGP::CFB;
Crypt::OpenPGP::Cipher objects wrap around an instance of this
class and provide a uniform interface to symmetric ciphers. See
the documentation for that module for usage details.
