ENCRYPT(3)                 Linux Programmer's Manual                ENCRYPT(3)



NAME
       encrypt, setkey, encrypt_r, setkey_r - encrypt 64-bit messages

SYNOPSIS
       #define _XOPEN_SOURCE
       #include <unistd.h>

       void encrypt(char block[64], int edflag);

       #define _XOPEN_SOURCE
       #include <stdlib.h>

       void setkey(const char *key);

       #define _GNU_SOURCE
       #include <crypt.h>

       void setkey_r(const char *key, struct crypt_data *data);
       void encrypt_r(char *block, int edflag, struct crypt_data *data);

       Each of these requires linking with -lcrypt.

DESCRIPTION
       These  functions  encrypt  and  decrypt 64-bit messages.  The setkey() function sets the key used by encrypt().
       The key argument used here is an array of 64 bytes, each of which has numerical value 1 or 0.  The bytes key[n]
       where n=8*i-1 are ignored, so that the effective key length is 56 bits.

       The  encrypt() function modifies the passed buffer, encoding if edflag is 0, and decoding if 1 is being passed.
       Like the key argument, also block is a bit vector representation of the actual  value  that  is  encoded.   The
       result is returned in that same vector.

       These  two  functions  are  not  reentrant,  that  is,  the  key data is kept in static storage.  The functions
       setkey_r() and encrypt_r() are the reentrant versions.  They use the following structure to hold the key data:

           struct crypt_data {
               char     keysched[16 * 8];
               char     sb0[32768];
               char     sb1[32768];
               char     sb2[32768];
               char     sb3[32768];
               char     crypt_3_buf[14];
               char     current_salt[2];
               long int current_saltbits;
               int      direction;
               int      initialized;
           };

       Before calling setkey_r() set data->initialized to zero.

RETURN VALUE
       These functions do not return any value.

ERRORS
       Set errno to zero before calling the above functions.  On success, it is unchanged.

       ENOSYS The function is not provided.  (For example because of former USA export restrictions.)

CONFORMING TO
       The functions encrypt() and setkey() conform to SVr4, SUSv2, and POSIX.1-2001.  The functions  encrypt_r()  and
       setkey_r() are GNU extensions.

NOTES
       In glibc 2.2 these functions use the DES algorithm.

EXAMPLE
       You  need  to  link  with  libcrypt  to compile this example with glibc.  To do useful work the key[] and txt[]
       arrays must be filled with a useful bit pattern.

       #define _XOPEN_SOURCE
       #include <unistd.h>
       #include <stdlib.h>

       int
       main(void)
       {
           char key[64];      /* bit pattern for key */
           char txt[64];      /* bit pattern for messages */

           setkey(key);
           encrypt(txt, 0);   /* encode */
           encrypt(txt, 1);   /* decode */
       }
