NAME         top

       gnutls_cipher_encrypt2 - API function

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <gnutls/crypto.h>

       int gnutls_cipher_encrypt2(gnutls_cipher_hd_t handle, const void *
       ptext, size_t ptext_len, void * ctext, size_t ctext_len);

ARGUMENTS         top

       gnutls_cipher_hd_t handle
                   is a gnutls_cipher_hd_t type

       const void * ptext
                   the data to encrypt

       size_t ptext_len
                   the length of data to encrypt

       void * ctext
                   the encrypted data

       size_t ctext_len
                   the available length for encrypted data

DESCRIPTION         top

       This function will encrypt the given data using the algorithm
       specified by the context. For block ciphers the  ptext_len must be a
       multiple of the block size. For the supported ciphers the encrypted
       data length will equal the plaintext size.

RETURNS         top

       Zero or a negative error code on error.
