EVP_CHACHA20(3) OpenSSL EVP_CHACHA20(3)
 

EVP_chacha20, EVP_chacha20_poly1305 - EVP ChaCha20 stream cipher

 #include <openssl/evp.h>
 const EVP_CIPHER *EVP_chacha20(void)
 const EVP_CIPHER *EVP_chacha20_poly1305(void)

The ChaCha20 stream cipher for EVP.
EVP_chacha20()
The ChaCha20 stream cipher. The key length is 256 bits, the IV is 96 bits long.
EVP_chacha20_poly1305()
Authenticated encryption with ChaCha20-Poly1305. Like EVP_chacha20(), the key is 256 bits and the IV is 96 bits. This supports additional authenticated data (AAD) and produces a 128-bit authentication tag. See the "AEAD Interface" in EVP_EncryptInit(3) section for more information.

These functions return an EVP_CIPHER structure that contains the implementation of the symmetric cipher. See EVP_CIPHER_meth_new(3) for details of the EVP_CIPHER structure.
