Detailed Description

template<class EC, class HASH = SHA1, class COFACTOR_OPTION = NoCofactorMultiplication, bool DHAES_MODE = true, bool LABEL_OCTETS = false>
struct ECIES< EC, HASH, COFACTOR_OPTION, DHAES_MODE, LABEL_OCTETS >

Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme.

Template Parameters
COFACTOR_OPTIONcofactor multiplication option
HASHHashTransformation derived class used for key drivation and MAC computation
DHAES_MODEflag indicating if the MAC includes additional context parameters such as u·V, v·U and label
LABEL_OCTETSflag indicating if the label size is specified in octets or bits

ECIES is an Elliptic Curve based Integrated Encryption Scheme (IES). The scheme combines a Key Encapsulation Method (KEM) with a Data Encapsulation Method (DEM) and a MAC tag. The scheme is IND-CCA2, which is a strong notion of security. You should prefer an Integrated Encryption Scheme over homegrown schemes.

If you desire an Integrated Encryption Scheme with Crypto++ 4.2 compatibility, then use the ECIES_P1363. If you desire an Integrated Encryption Scheme compatibile with Bouncy Castle 1.54 and Botan 1.11 compatibility, then use the ECIES template class with NoCofactorMultiplication, DHAES_MODE=true and LABEL_OCTETS=false.

The default template parameters ensure compatibility with Bouncy Castle 1.54 and Botan 1.11. The combination of IncompatibleCofactorMultiplication and DHAES_MODE=true is recommended for best efficiency and security. SHA1 is used for compatibility reasons, but it can be changed if desired.
