NAME

       shishi_decrypt_iv - API function

SYNOPSIS

       #include <shishi.h>

       int  shishi_decrypt_iv(Shishi  *  handle, Shishi_key * key, int keyusage, const char * iv,
       size_t ivlen, const char * in, size_t inlen, char ** out, size_t * outlen);

ARGUMENTS

       Shishi * handle
                   shishi handle as allocated by shishi_init().

       Shishi_key * key
                   key to decrypt with.

       int keyusage
                   integer specifying what this key is decrypting.

       const char * iv
                   input array with initialization vector

       size_t ivlen
                   size of input array with initialization vector.

       const char * in
                   input array with data to decrypt.

       size_t inlen
                   size of input array with data to decrypt.

       char ** out output array with newly allocated decrypted data.

       size_t * outlen
                   output variable with size of newly allocated output array.

DESCRIPTION

       Decrypts data using specified initialization vector and key.  The  key  actually  used  is
       derived  using  the  key  usage.   If  key usage is 0, no key derivation is used.  The OUT
       buffer  must   be   deallocated   by   the   caller.    The   next   IV   is   lost,   see
       shishi_decrypt_ivupdate_etype if you need it.

       Note that DECRYPT(ENCRYPT(data)) does not necessarily yield data exactly.  Some encryption
       types add pad to make the data fit into  the  block  size  of  the  encryption  algorithm.
       Furthermore,  the  pad  is  not  guaranteed  to look in any special way, although existing
       implementations often pad with the zero byte.  This means that you  may  have  to  "frame"
       data,  so it is possible to infer the original length after decryption.  Compare ASN.1 DER
       which contains such information.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns SHISHI_OK iff successful.
