NAME         top

       gnutls_aead_cipher_encryptv - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/crypto.h>

       int gnutls_aead_cipher_encryptv(gnutls_aead_cipher_hd_t handle,
       const void * nonce, size_t nonce_len, const giovec_t * auth_iov,
       int auth_iovcnt, size_t tag_size, const giovec_t * iov, int
       iovcnt, void * ctext, size_t * ctext_len);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_aead_cipher_hd_t handle
                   is a gnutls_aead_cipher_hd_t type.

       const void * nonce
                   the nonce to set

       size_t nonce_len
                   The length of the nonce

       const giovec_t * auth_iov
                   additional data to be authenticated

       int auth_iovcnt
                   The number of buffers in  auth_iov

       size_t tag_size
                   The size of the tag to use (use zero for the default)

       const giovec_t * iov
                   the data to be encrypted

       int iovcnt  The number of buffers in  iov

       void * ctext
                   the encrypted data including authentication tag

       size_t * ctext_len
                   the length of encrypted data (initially must hold the
                   maximum available size, including space for tag)

DESCRIPTION         top
