Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Algorithm::Algorithm ( bool  checkSelfTestStatus = true)

Interface for all crypto algorithms.

checkSelfTestStatusdetermines whether the object can proceed if the self tests have not been run or failed.

When FIPS 140-2 compliance is enabled and checkSelfTestStatus == true, this constructor throws SelfTestFailure if the self test hasn't been run or fails.

FIPS 140-2 compliance is disabled by default. It is only used by certain versions of the library when the library is built as a DLL on Windows. Also see CRYPTOPP_ENABLE_COMPLIANCE_WITH_FIPS_140_2 in config.h.

Member Function Documentation

virtual std::string Algorithm::AlgorithmName ( ) const

Provides the name of this algorithm.

the standard algorithm name

The standard algorithm name can be a name like AES or AES/GCM. Some algorithms do not have standard names yet. For example, there is no standard algorithm name for Shoup's ECIES.

AlgorithmName is not universally implemented yet

Reimplemented in AuthenticatedSymmetricCipher, SignatureVerificationFilter, SignerFilter, AuthenticatedDecryptionFilter, HashVerificationFilter, HashFilter, StreamTransformationFilter, ClassNullRNG, BitBucket, RDSEED, DH_Domain< GROUP_PARAMETERS, COFACTOR_OPTION >, HMAC< T >, RDRAND, CRC32, GCM_Base, Adler32, EAX_Base, CCM_Base, SHA3, and VMAC_Base.
