       #include <gnutls/crypto.h>

       ctext, size_t ctext_len);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_cipher_hd_t handle
                   is a gnutls_cipher_hd_t type

       void * ctext
                   the data to decrypt

       size_t ctext_len
                   the length of data to decrypt

       This function will decrypt the given data using the algorithm
       specified by the context.

       Note that in AEAD ciphers, this will not check the tag. You will
