A cipher_type_id_t is an identifier for a cipher_type; only values given by the defines above (or those present in the file crypto_types.h) should be used.
The identifier STRONGHOLD_CIPHER indicates the strongest available cipher, allowing an application to choose the strongest available algorithm without any advance knowledge about the avaliable algorithms.
|AES-128 Cipher Block Chaining Mode (AES CBC). |
|AES-128 Integer Counter Mode (AES ICM). |
|The null cipher performs no encryption. |
|SEAL 3.0. |
|Strongest available cipher. |
|A cipher_type_id_t is an identifier for a particular cipher type. |
