Hi, I need to encrypt some data using Triple DES in ECB mode
(DES-EDE3-ECB), but I don’t know how to do it. If I create the cipher
e = OpenSSL::Cipher::Cipher.new ‘DES-EDE3’
It seems (man enc) that des-ede3 is an alias for des-ede3-cbc, so
there seems to be no way of encrypting with des-ede3-ecb?
‘man enc’ on my system says:
des-ede3-cbc Three key triple DES EDE in CBC mode
des-ede3 Three key triple DES EDE in ECB mode
des3 Alias for des-ede3-cbc
des-ede3-cfb Three key triple DES EDE CFB mode
des-ede3-ofb Three key triple DES EDE in OFB mode
That is: “des-ede3” gives you ECB.
This is with:
ii libssl0.9.8 0.9.8g-4ubuntu3.3
SSL shared libraries
So perhaps you have some old version of openssl installed - or perhaps
you didn’t read the manpage properly.
In any case, I’d suggest that openssl-specific questions really belong
on an openssl mailing list, since this wasn’t anything to do with the
