NAME

Crypt::Cipher::CAST5 - Symetric cipher CAST5 (aka CAST-128), key size: 40-128 bits (Crypt::CBC compliant)

SYNOPSIS

  ### example 1
  use Crypt::Mode::CBC;

  my $key = '...'; # length has to be valid key size for this cipher
  my $iv = '...';  # 16 bytes
  my $cbc = Crypt::Mode::CBC->new('CAST5');
  my $ciphertext = $cbc->encrypt("secret data", $key, $iv);

  ### example 2
  use Crypt::CBC;
  use Crypt::Cipher::CAST5;

  my $key = '...'; # length has to be valid key size for this cipher
  my $iv = '...';  # 16 bytes
  my $cbc = Crypt::CBC->new( -cipher=>'Cipher::CAST5', -key=>$key, -iv=>$iv );
  my $ciphertext = $cbc->encrypt("secret data");

DESCRIPTION

This module implements the CAST5 cipher. Provided interface is compliant with Crypt::CBC module.

BEWARE: This module implements just elementary "one-block-(en|de)cryption" operation - if you want to encrypt/decrypt generic data you have to use some of the cipher block modes - check for example Crypt::Mode::CBC, Crypt::Mode::CTR or Crypt::CBC (which will be slower).
