Name ^

Class::Usul::Crypt - Encryption/decryption functions

Synopsis ^

   use Class::Usul::Crypt qw(decrypt encrypt);

   my $args = q(); # OR
   my $args = 'salt'; # OR
   my $args = { salt => 'salt', seed => 'whiten this' };

   $args->{cipher} = 'Twofish2'; # Optionally

   my $base64_encrypted_text = encrypt( $args, $plain_text );

   my $plain_text = decrypt( $args, $base64_encrypted_text );

Description ^

Exports a pair of functions to encrypt/decrypt data. Obfuscates the default encryption key

Configuration and Environment ^

The $key can be a string (including the null string) or a hash ref with salt and seed keys. The seed attribute can be a code ref in which case it will be called with no argument and the return value used

Subroutines/Methods ^

decrypt

   my $plain = decrypt( $salt || \%params, $encoded );

Decodes and decrypts the $encoded argument and returns the plain text result. See the "encrypt" method

encrypt

   my $encoded = encrypt( $salt || \%params, $plain );

Encrypts the plain text passed in the $plain argument and returns it Base64 encoded. By default Crypt::Twofish2 is used to do the encryption. The optional $params->{cipher} attribute overrides this

cipher_list

   @list_of_ciphers = cipher_list();

Returns the list of ciphers supported by Crypt::CBC. These may not all be installed

default_cipher

   $ciper_name = default_cipher();

Returns Twofish2

__cipher

Lifted from Acme::Bleach this recovers the default seed for the key generator

Generates the key used by the encrypt and decrypt methods. The seed is eval'd in string context and then the salt is concatenated onto it before being passed to Class::Usul::Functions/create_token. Uses this value as the key for a Crypt::CBC object which it creates and returns

Diagnostics ^
