is the gnutls algorithm identifier
is the priority of the algorithm
A function which initializes the cipher
A function which sets the key of the cipher
A function which sets the nonce/IV of the cipher
A function which performs encryption (non-AEAD)
A function which performs decryption (non-AEAD)
A function which deinitializes the cipher
This function will register a cipher algorithm to be used by gnutls.
Any algorithm registered will override the included algorithms and by
convention kernel implemented algorithms have priority of 90 and
CPU-assisted of 80. The algorithm with the lowest priority will be
used by gnutls.
In the case the registered init or setkey functions return
GNUTLS_E_NEED_FALLBACK, GnuTLS will attempt to use the next in
priority registered cipher.
The functions which are marked as non-AEAD they are not required when
registering a cipher to be used with the new AEAD API introduced in
GnuTLS 3.4.0. Internally GnuTLS uses the new AEAD API.
