       Crypt::Rijndael - Crypt::CBC compliant Rijndael encryption module


       Version 1.13


        use Crypt::Rijndael;

        # keysize() is 32, but 24 and 16 are also possible
        # blocksize() is 16

        $cipher = Crypt::Rijndael->new( "a" x 32, Crypt::Rijndael::MODE_CBC() );

        $crypted = $cipher->encrypt($plaintext);
               # - OR -
        $plaintext = $cipher->decrypt($crypted);


       This module implements the Rijndael cipher, which has just been selected as the Advanced
       Encryption Standard.

           Returns the keysize, which is 32 (bytes). The Rijndael cipher actually supports
           keylengths of 16, 24 or 32 bytes, but there is no way to communicate this to

           The blocksize for Rijndael is 16 bytes (128 bits), although the algorithm actually
           supports any blocksize that is any multiple of our bytes.  128 bits, is however, the
           AES-specified block size, so this is all we support.

       $cipher = Crypt::Rijndael->new( $key [, $mode] )
           Create a new "Crypt::Rijndael" cipher object with the given key (which must be 128,
           192 or 256 bits long). The additional $mode argument is the encryption mode, either
           "MODE_ECB" (electronic codebook mode, the default), "MODE_CBC" (cipher block chaining,
           the same that "Crypt::CBC" does), "MODE_CFB" (128-bit cipher feedback), "MODE_OFB"
           (128-bit output feedback), or "MODE_CTR" (counter mode).

           ECB mode is very insecure (read a book on cryptography if you don't know why!), so you
           should probably use CBC mode.

           This allows you to change the initial value vector used by the chaining modes.  It is
           not relevant for ECB mode.

           Encrypt data. The size of $data must be a multiple of "blocksize" (16 bytes),
           otherwise this function will croak. Apart from that, it can be of (almost) any length.

           Decrypts $data.

   Encryption modes
       Use these constants to select the cipher type:

       MODE_CBC - Cipher Block Chaining
       MODE_CFB - Cipher feedback
       MODE_CTR - Counter mode
       MODE_ECB - Electronic cookbook mode
       MODE_OFB - Output feedback
       MODE_PCBC - ignore this one for now :)




       Should EXPORT or EXPORT_OK the MODE constants.

       selected as the US Government's Advanced Encryption Standard.
