class IDecryptStream

Bases: istream

An input stream object that uses OpenSSL to decrypt the input from another source stream on-the-fly.

Attach an IDecryptStream to an existing istream that provides encrypted data, as generated by an OEncryptStream, and read the corresponding unencrypted data from the IDecryptStream.

Seeking is not supported.

explicit IDecryptStream(std::istream *source, bool owns_source, std::string const &password)
IDecryptStream &close(void)

Resets the EncryptStream to empty, but does not actually close the source istream unless owns_source was true.

std::string const &get_algorithm(void) const

Returns the encryption algorithm that was read from the stream.

int get_iteration_count(void) const

Returns the value that was was read from the stream.

int get_key_length(void) const

Returns the encryption key length, in bits, that was read from the stream.
