<div class="textblock"><p>The gSOAP mecevp engine encrypts and decrypts messages using the EVP interface of OpenSSL. It supports envelope encryption/decryption with public and private RSA keys and symmetric encryption with shared secret keys. Streaming and buffered message encryption modes are supported.</p>
<p>An encryption and decryption algorithm and mode is selected with one of the following:</p>
<ul>

</ul>
<p>where, in the above, AES256 can be replaced with AES128 ot AES192.</p>
<p>Algorithm options:</p>
<ul>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8h.html#a3ec89ef31a2fbfa3437815768f8ec089">SOAP_MEC_STORE</a> buffer all output in memory</li>

</ul>
<p>The mecevp engine wraps the EVP API with four new functions:</p>
<ul>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#a6144725452c8086c7b1807f6310ff79d">soap_mec_init</a> to initialize the engine</li>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#a8c447a82872a919bb1935f34b849c1c4">soap_mec_update</a> to encrypt/decrypt a message part</li>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#aaa93413bd3e4136fe87a067821cfed53">soap_mec_final</a> to finalize encryption/decryption</li>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#a81ba68931cefa8b7a0f246d99e31e3ed">soap_mec_cleanup</a> to deallocate the engine and buffers</li>
</ul>
<p>All cipher data is written and read in base64 format.</p>
<p>A higher-level interface for message encryption/decryption in parts (such as individual XML elements) is defined by two new functions:</p>
<ul>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#a4c388668cf9472d0bf8abcb3e758786f">soap_mec_begin</a> to begin a streaming sequence of encryptions/decryptions</li>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#af225c0e603c01f9a59c60d6465d90535">soap_mec_start</a> to start encryption/decryption of a message part</li>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#aedaa8cd525cac9cbe0904378419573d9">soap_mec_stop</a> to stop encryption/decryption of a message part</li>
<li><a class="el" href="mecevp_8c.html#a52b1ae6b5677aff39ac6f9548e9789b7">soap_mec_end</a> to end the sequence and deallocate the engine buffers</li>
</ul>
<p>Compile all source codes with -DWITH_OPENSSL and link with ssl and crypto libraries.</p>
<p>Here is an example to encrypt a message while streaming it to the output. The example uses the public key of the recipient/reader of the message. The recipient/reader uses its private key to decrypt. Envelope encryption is used with SOAP_MEC_ENV_ENC_DES_CBC, which means an ephemeral secret key is generated and encrypted with the public key. This encrypted secret key should be communicated to the recipient/reader with the message to decrypt:</p>

<p>Symmetric encryption and decryption can be used if both parties can safely share a secret symmetric key that no other party has access to. We use SOAP_MEC_ENC_DES_CBC for encryption and SOAP_MEC_DEC_DES_CBC for decryption using a 160-bit triple DES key. You can also use AES128, AES192, AES256 ciphers.</p>
