class Sodium::Cipher::ChaCha20Ietf


These classes can be used to generate pseudo-random data from a key, or as building blocks for implementing custom constructions, but they are not alternatives to secretbox.

See for further information.

This class mimicks the OpenSSL::Cipher interface with minor differences.

See spec/sodium/cipher/ for examples on how to use this class.

WARNING: Not validated against test vectors. You should probably write some before using this class.

def update(src : Bytes, dst : Bytes) : Bytes #

Xor's src with the cipher output and places in dst.

src and dst may be the same object but should not overlap.
