NAME
       gnutls_aead_cipher_init - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/crypto.h>

       int gnutls_aead_cipher_init(gnutls_aead_cipher_hd_t * handle,
       gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher, const gnutls_datum_t * key);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_aead_cipher_hd_t * handle
                   is a gnutls_aead_cipher_hd_t type.

       gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher
                   the authenticated-encryption algorithm to use

       const gnutls_datum_t * key
                   The key to be used for encryption

DESCRIPTION
       This function will initialize an context that can be used for
       encryption/decryption of data. This will effectively use the current
       crypto backend in use by gnutls or the cryptographic accelerator in use.

RETURNS
       Zero or a negative error code on error.
