PHP 5.5.15 is released

mcrypt_get_iv_size

(PHP 4 >= 4.0.2, PHP 5)

mcrypt_get_iv_sizeReturns the size of the IV belonging to a specific cipher/mode combination

Beschreibung

int mcrypt_get_iv_size ( string $cipher , string $mode )

Gets the size of the IV belonging to a specific cipher/mode combination.

It is more useful to use the mcrypt_enc_get_iv_size() function as this uses the resource returned by mcrypt_module_open().

Parameter-Liste

cipher

Eine der Konstanten von MCRYPT_ciphername oder der Name eines Algorithmus als Zeichenkette.

mode

Eine der Konstanten von MCRYPT_MODE_modename oder eine der folgenden Zeichenketten: "ecb", "cbc", "cfb", "ofb", "nofb" oder "stream".

The IV is ignored in ECB mode as this mode does not require it. You will need to have the same IV (think: starting point) both at encryption and decryption stages, otherwise your encryption will fail.

R├╝ckgabewerte

Returns the size of the Initialization Vector (IV) in bytes. On error the function returns FALSE. If the IV is ignored in the specified cipher/mode combination zero is returned.
