ENC(1)                              OpenSSL                             ENC(1)



NAME
       enc - symmetric cipher routines

SYNOPSIS
       openssl enc -ciphername [-in filename] [-out filename] [-pass arg] [-e] [-d]
       [-a/-base64] [-A] [-k password] [-kfile filename] [-K key] [-iv IV] [-S salt]
       [-salt] [-nosalt] [-z] [-md] [-p] [-P] [-bufsize number] [-nopad] [-debug] [-none]
       [-engine id]

DESCRIPTION
       The symmetric cipher commands allow data to be encrypted or decrypted using various
       block and stream ciphers using keys based on passwords or explicitly provided.
       Base64 encoding or decoding can also be performed either by itself or in addition
       to the encryption or decryption.

OPTIONS
       -in filename
           the input filename, standard input by default.

       -out filename
           the output filename, standard output by default.

       -pass arg
           the password source. For more information about the format of arg see the PASS
           PHRASE ARGUMENTS section in openssl(1).

       -salt
           use a salt in the key derivation routines. This is the default.

       -nosalt
           don't use a salt in the key derivation routines. This option SHOULD NOT be used
           except for test purposes or compatibility with ancient versions of OpenSSL and
           SSLeay.

       -e  encrypt the input data: this is the default.

       -d  decrypt the input data.

       -a  base64 process the data. This means that if encryption is taking place the data
           is base64 encoded after encryption. If decryption is set then the input data is
           base64 decoded before being decrypted.

       -base64
           same as -a

       -A  if the -a option is set then base64 process the data on one line.

       -k password
           the password to derive the key from. This is for compatibility with previous
           versions of OpenSSL. Superseded by the -pass argument.

       -kfile filename
           read the password to derive the key from the first line of filename.  This is
           for compatibility with previous versions of OpenSSL. Superseded by the -pass
           argument.

       -nosalt
           do not use a salt

       -salt
           use salt (randomly generated or provide with -S option) when encrypting (this
           is the default).

       -S salt
           the actual salt to use: this must be represented as a string of hex digits.

       -K key
           the actual key to use: this must be represented as a string comprised only of
           hex digits. If only the key is specified, the IV must additionally specified
           using the -iv option. When both a key and a password are specified, the key
           given with the -K option will be used and the IV generated from the password
           will be taken. It probably does not make much sense to specify both key and
           password.

       -iv IV
           the actual IV to use: this must be represented as a string comprised only of
           hex digits. When only the key is specified using the -K option, the IV must
           explicitly be defined. When a password is being specified using one of the
           other options, the IV is generated from this password.

       -p  print out the key and IV used.

       -P  print out the key and IV used then immediately exit: don't do any encryption or
           decryption.

       -bufsize number
           set the buffer size for I/O

       -nopad
           disable standard block padding

       -debug
           debug the BIOs used for I/O.

       -z  Compress or decompress clear text using zlib before encryption or after
           decryption. This option exists only if OpenSSL with compiled with zlib or zlib-
           dynamic option.

       -none
           Use NULL cipher (no encryption or decryption of input).

NOTES
       The program can be called either as openssl ciphername or openssl enc -ciphername.
       But the first form doesn't work with engine-provided ciphers, because this form is
       processed before the configuration file is read and any ENGINEs loaded.

       Engines which provide entirely new encryption algorithms (such as ccgost engine
       which provides gost89 algorithm) should be configured in the configuration file.
       Engines, specified in the command line using -engine options can only be used for
       hadrware-assisted implementations of ciphers, which are supported by OpenSSL core
       or other engine, specified in the configuration file.

       When enc command lists supported ciphers, ciphers provided by engines, specified in
       the configuration files are listed too.

       A password will be prompted for to derive the key and IV if necessary.

       The -salt option should ALWAYS be used if the key is being derived from a password
       unless you want compatibility with previous versions of OpenSSL and SSLeay.

       Without the -salt option it is possible to perform efficient dictionary attacks on
       the password and to attack stream cipher encrypted data. The reason for this is
       that without the salt the same password always generates the same encryption key.
       When the salt is being used the first eight bytes of the encrypted data are
       reserved for the salt: it is generated at random when encrypting a file and read
       from the encrypted file when it is decrypted.

       Some of the ciphers do not have large keys and others have security implications if
       not used correctly. A beginner is advised to just use a strong block cipher in CBC
       mode such as bf or des3.

       All the block ciphers normally use PKCS#5 padding also known as standard block
       padding: this allows a rudimentary integrity or password check to be performed.
       However since the chance of random data passing the test is better than 1 in 256 it
       isn't a very good test.

       If padding is disabled then the input data must be a multiple of the cipher block
       length.

       All RC2 ciphers have the same key and effective key length.

       Blowfish and RC5 algorithms use a 128 bit key.

SUPPORTED CIPHERS
       Note that some of these ciphers can be disabled at compile time and some are
       available only if an appropriate engine is configured in the configuration file.
       The output of the enc command run with unsupported options (for example openssl enc
       -help) includes a list of ciphers, supported by your versesion of OpenSSL,
       including ones provided by configured engines.

EXAMPLES
       Just base64 encode a binary file:

        openssl base64 -in file.bin -out file.b64

       Decode the same file

        openssl base64 -d -in file.b64 -out file.bin

       Encrypt a file using triple DES in CBC mode using a prompted password:

        openssl des3 -salt -in file.txt -out file.des3

       Decrypt a file using a supplied password:

        openssl des3 -d -salt -in file.des3 -out file.txt -k mypassword

       Encrypt a file then base64 encode it (so it can be sent via mail for example) using
       Blowfish in CBC mode:

        openssl bf -a -salt -in file.txt -out file.bf

       Base64 decode a file then decrypt it:

        openssl bf -d -salt -a -in file.bf -out file.txt

       Decrypt some data using a supplied 40 bit RC4 key:

        openssl rc4-40 -in file.rc4 -out file.txt -K 0102030405

BUGS
       The -A option when used with large files doesn't work properly.

       There should be an option to allow an iteration count to be included.

       The enc program only supports a fixed number of algorithms with certain parameters.
       So if, for example, you want to use RC2 with a 76 bit key or RC4 with an 84 bit key
       you can't use this program.
