command is used to perform encryption
or decryption using symmetric ciphers. The command can also be used
to perform base64 encoding.
Specify the name of the file to be used as input. If this option is
stdin is used.
Specify the name of the file to be used as output. If this option is
stdout is used.
Specify the password to be used for encryption or decryption. The password is used to generate an initialization vector (iv) and a key to be used by the cipher. This option follows the guidelines for passwords and passphrases outlined in Chapter 2.
Cause the input to be encrypted. This is the default operation to be performed.
Cause the input to be decrypted.
Cause a salt to be used in the key derivation routines. This option should always be used unless you need backward compatibility with versions of OpenSSL older than 0.9.5.
If this option is specified, no salt will be used in the key derivation routines. This is the default.
Cause the data to be base64-encoded after it is encrypted, or base64-decoded before it is decrypted.
Cause the base64 encoding to be produced on a single line when it is
being encoded and expected on a single line when it is being decoded.
This option is ignored unless the
a option is
Cause the derived key and initialization vector to be output.
Cause the derived key and initialization vector to be output. No encryption ...
