EVP_chacha20(3)                     OpenSSL                    EVP_chacha20(3)



NAME
       EVP_chacha20, EVP_chacha20_poly1305 - EVP ChaCha20 stream cipher

LIBRARY
       libcrypto, -lcrypto

SYNOPSIS
        #include <openssl/evp.h>

        const EVP_CIPHER *EVP_chacha20(void)
        const EVP_CIPHER *EVP_chacha20_poly1305(void)

DESCRIPTION
       The ChaCha20 stream cipher for EVP.

       EVP_chacha20()
           The ChaCha20 stream cipher. The key length is 256 bits, the IV is
           96 bits long.

       EVP_chacha20_poly1305()
           Authenticated encryption with ChaCha20-Poly1305. Like
           EVP_chacha20(), the key is 256 bits and the IV is 96 bits. This
           supports additional authenticated data (AAD) and produces a 128-bit
           authentication tag. See the "AEAD Interface" in EVP_EncryptInit(3)
           section for more information.

RETURN VALUES
       These functions return an EVP_CIPHER structure that contains the
       implementation of the symmetric cipher. See EVP_CIPHER_meth_new(3) for
       details of the EVP_CIPHER structure.
