public __construct(int $mode = CRYPT_MODE_CBC)

Default Constructor.

Determines whether or not the mcrypt extension should be used.

$mode could be:

If not explicitly set, CRYPTDESMODE_CBC will be used.

Parameters

int $mode

Crypt_DES::Crypt_DES()
Crypt_Base::Crypt_Base()

public Crypt_Base(int $mode = CRYPT_MODE_CBC)

PHP4 compatible Default Constructor.

Parameters

int $mode

self::__construct()

at line 269
public setIV(string $iv)

Sets the initialization vector.

(optional)

SetIV is not required when CRYPTDESMODE_ECB is being used. If not explicitly set, it'll be assumed to be all zero's.

Parameters

string $iv

See also

Crypt_Base::setIV()

at line 288
public setKeyLength(int $length)

Sets the key length.

Valid key lengths are 64, 128 and 192

Parameters

int $length

See also

Crypt_Base:setKeyLength()

in Crypt_Base at line 587
public int getKeyLength()

Returns the current key length in bits

Return Value

int

in Crypt_Base at line 598
public int getBlockLength()

Returns the current block length in bits

Return Value

int

at line 320
public setKey(string $key)

Sets the key.

Keys can be of any length. Triple DES, itself, can use 128-bit (eg. strlen($key) == 16) or 192-bit (eg. strlen($key) == 24) keys. This function pads and truncates $key as appropriate.

DES also requires that every eighth bit be a parity bit, however, we'll ignore that.

If the key is not explicitly set, it'll be assumed to be all null bytes.

Parameters

string $key

Crypt_DES::setKey()
Crypt_Base::setKey()

in Crypt_Base at line 645
public bool setPassword(string $password, string $method = 'pbkdf2')

Sets the password.

Depending on what $method is set to, setPassword()'s (optional) parameters are as follows: {@link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PBKDF2 pbkdf2} or pbkdf1: $hash, $salt, $count, $dkLen

    Where $hash (default = sha1) currently supports the following hashes: see: Crypt/Hash.php

Parameters

string $password
string $method

Return Value

bool

public string encrypt(string $plaintext)

Encrypts a message.

Parameters

Crypt_Base::decrypt()

in Crypt_Base at line 1339
public string _openssl_ctr_process(string $plaintext, string $encryptIV, array $buffer)

OpenSSL CTR Processor

PHP's OpenSSL bindings do not operate in continuous mode so we'll wrap around it. Since the keystream for CTR is the same for both encrypting and decrypting this function is re-used by both CryptBase::encrypt() and CryptBase::decrypt(). Also, OpenSSL doesn't implement CTR for all of it's symmetric ciphers so this function will emulate CTR with ECB when necessary.

Parameters

string $plaintext
string $encryptIV
array $buffer

Return Value

string

self::encrypt()
self::decrypt()

in Crypt_Base at line 1433
public string _openssl_ofb_process(string $plaintext, string $encryptIV, array $buffer)

OpenSSL OFB Processor

PHP's OpenSSL bindings do not operate in continuous mode so we'll wrap around it. Since the keystream for OFB is the same for both encrypting and decrypting this function is re-used by both CryptBase::encrypt() and CryptBase::decrypt().

Parameters

string $plaintext
string $encryptIV
array $buffer

Return Value

string

public int _openssl_translate_mode()

Return Value

public enablePadding()

Pad "packets".

Block ciphers working by encrypting between their specified [$this->]block_size at a time If you ever need to encrypt or decrypt something that isn't of the proper length, it becomes necessary to pad the input so that it is of the proper length.

Padding is enabled by default. Sometimes, however, it is undesirable to pad strings. Such is the case in SSH, where "packets" are padded with random bytes before being encrypted. Unpad these packets and you risk stripping away characters that shouldn't be stripped away. (SSH knows how many bytes are added because the length is transmitted separately)

See also

self::disablePadding()

in Crypt_Base at line 1521
public disablePadding()

Do not pad packets.

See also

self::enablePadding()

at line 434
public enableContinuousBuffer()

Treat consecutive "packets" as if they are a continuous buffer.

Say you have a 16-byte plaintext $plaintext. Using the default behavior, the two following code snippets will yield different outputs:

echo $des->encrypt(substr($plaintext, 0, 8)); echo $des->encrypt(substr($plaintext, 8, 8)); echo $des->encrypt($plaintext);

The solution is to enable the continuous buffer. Although this will resolve the above discrepancy, it creates another, as demonstrated with the following:

$des->encrypt(substr($plaintext, 0, 8)); echo $des->decrypt($des->encrypt(substr($plaintext, 8, 8))); echo $des->decrypt($des->encrypt(substr($plaintext, 8, 8)));

With the continuous buffer disabled, these would yield the same output. With it enabled, they yield different outputs. The reason is due to the fact that the initialization vector's change after every encryption / decryption round when the continuous buffer is enabled. When it's disabled, they remain constant.

Put another way, when the continuous buffer is enabled, the state of the Crypt_DES() object changes after each encryption / decryption round, whereas otherwise, it'd remain constant. For this reason, it's recommended that continuous buffers not be used. They do offer better security and are, in fact, sometimes required (SSH uses them), however, they are also less intuitive and more likely to cause you problems.

public string _pad(string $text)

Pads a string

Pads a string using the RSA PKCS padding standards so that its length is a multiple of the blocksize. $this->blocksize - (strlen($text) % $this->blocksize) bytes are added, each of which is equal to chr($this->blocksize - (strlen($text) % $this->blocksize)

If padding is disabled and $text is not a multiple of the blocksize, the string will be padded regardless and padding will, hence forth, be enabled.

Parameters

string $text

Return Value

string

See also

self::_unpad()

in Crypt_Base at line 1913
public string _unpad(string $text)

Unpads a string.

If padding is enabled and the reported padding length is invalid the encryption key will be assumed to be wrong and false will be returned.

Parameters

string $text

Return Value

string
