pState
);
Include Files
ippcp.h
Parameters
pTag
Pointer to the authentication tag.
tagLen
Length of the authentication tag *pTag (in bytes).
pState
Pointer to the
IppsAES_GCMState
context.
Description
The function generates and computes the authentication tag of length
tagLen
according to GCM as specified in [NIST SP 800-38D]. A call to
ippsAES_GCMGetTag
does not stop the process of authenticated encryption/decryption.
Return Values
ippStsNoErr
Indicates no error. Any other value indicates an error or warning.
ippStsNullPtrErr
Indicates an error condition if any of the specified pointers is
NULL
.
