Encryption Algorithm (-ENCALG)

Use the Encryption Algorithm adapter command (-ENCALG) to specify the cipher algorithm used in the message encryption process.

-ENCALG algorithm_id

The following table lists the allowed values for the algorithm_id and the corresponding algorithms:

Algorithm_id
Algorithm
3DES
Triple DES Block Cipher
CAST5
CAST5 128-bit block cipher
BLOWFISH
Blowfish block cipher
RIJNDAEL
AES (Rijndael) block cipher 128 bit key
RIJNDAEL192
AES (Rijndael) block cipher 192 bit key
RIJNDAEL256
AES (Rijndael) block cipher 256 bit key
TWOFISH
Twofish 128 bit block cipher

The -ENCALG adapter command is meaningful only if the following conditions are met:

  • -ENCODE adapter command is used
  • -ACTION ENCRYPT or -ACTION SIGNANDENCRYPT adapter command is used
