NAME
       gnutls_cipher_init - API function

SYNOPSIS
       #include <gnutls/crypto.h>

       int gnutls_cipher_init(gnutls_cipher_hd_t * handle,
       gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher, const gnutls_datum_t * key, const
       gnutls_datum_t * iv);

ARGUMENTS
       gnutls_cipher_hd_t * handle
                   is a gnutls_cipher_hd_t type

       gnutls_cipher_algorithm_t cipher
                   the encryption algorithm to use

       const gnutls_datum_t * key
                   the key to be used for encryption/decryption

       const gnutls_datum_t * iv
                   the IV to use (if not applicable set NULL)

DESCRIPTION
       This function will initialize the  handle context to be usable 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.

SINCE
       2.10.0
