Crypt::DES_EEE3 - Triple-DES EEE encryption/decryption
use Crypt::DES_EEE3; my $ede3 = Crypt::DES_EEE3->new($key); $ede3->encrypt($block);
Crypt::DES_EEE3 implements DES-EEE3 encryption. This is triple-DES encryption where an encrypt operation is encrypt-encrypt-encrypt, and decrypt is decrypt-decrypt-decrypt. This implementation uses Crypt::DES to do its dirty DES work, and simply provides a wrapper around that module: setting up the individual DES ciphers, initializing the keys, and performing the encryption/decryption steps.
DES-EEE3 encryption requires a key size of 24 bytes.
You're probably best off not using this module directly, as the encrypt and decrypt methods expect 8-octet blocks. You might want to use the module in conjunction with Crypt::CBC, for example. This would be DES-EEE3-CBC, or triple-DES in outer CBC mode.
Creates a new Crypt::DES_EEE3 object (really, a collection of three DES ciphers), and initializes each cipher with part of $key, which should be at least 24 bytes. If it's longer than 24 bytes, the extra bytes will be ignored.
Returns the new object.
Encrypts an 8-byte block of data $block using the three DES ciphers in an encrypt-decrypt-encrypt operation.
Returns the encrypted block.
Decrypts an 8-byte block of data $block using the three DES ciphers in a decrypt-encrypt-decrypt operation.
Returns the decrypted block.
Returns the block size (8).
Returns the key size (24).
