EVP_MAC-GMAC

NAME

EVP_MAC-GMAC - The GMAC EVP_MAC implementation

DESCRIPTION

Support for computing GMAC MACs through the EVP_MAC API.

Identity

This implementation is identified with this name and properties, to be used with EVP_MAC_fetch():

"GMAC", "default=yes"

Supported parameters

The general description of these parameters can be found in "PARAMETERS" in EVP_MAC(3).

The following parameter can be set with EVP_MAC_CTX_set_params():

"key" (OSSL_MAC_PARAM_KEY) <octet string>
"iv" (OSSL_MAC_PARAM_IV) <octet string>
"cipher" (OSSL_MAC_PARAM_CIPHER) <UTF8 string>
"properties" (OSSL_MAC_PARAM_PROPERTIES) <UTF8 string>

The following parameters can be retrieved with EVP_MAC_CTX_get_params():

"size" (OSSL_MAC_PARAM_SIZE) <unsigned integer>

The "size" parameter can also be retrieved with EVP_MAC_size(). The length of the "size" parameter is equal to that of an unsigned int.
