SYNOPSIS

#include <shishi.h>

int shishi_decrypt_iv(Shishi * handle, Shishi_key * key, int keyusage, const char * iv, size_t ivlen, const char * in, size_t inlen, char ** out, size_t * outlen);

ARGUMENTS

Shishi * handle shishi handle as allocated by shishi_init().
Shishi_key * key key to decrypt with.
int keyusage integer specifying what this key is decrypting.
const char * iv input array with initialization vector
size_t ivlen size of input array with initialization vector.
const char * in input array with data to decrypt.
size_t inlen size of input array with data to decrypt.
char ** out output array with newly allocated decrypted data.
size_t * outlen output variable with size of newly allocated output array.

DESCRIPTION

Decrypts data using specified initialization vector and key. The key actually used is derived using the key usage. If key usage is 0, no key derivation is used. The OUT buffer must be deallocated by the caller. The next IV is lost, see shishi_decrypt_ivupdate_etype if you need it.

Note that DECRYPT(ENCRYPT(data)) does not necessarily yield data exactly. Some encryption types add pad to make the data fit into the block size of the encryption algorithm. Furthermore, the pad is not guaranteed to look in any special way, although existing implementations often pad with the zero byte. This means that you may have to "frame" data, so it is possible to infer the original length after decryption. Compare ASN.1 DER which contains such information.

RETURN VALUE

Returns SHISHI_OK iff successful.
