#include <gnutls/crypto.h>

int gnutls_cipher_encrypt2(gnutls_cipher_hd_t handle, const void * ptext, size_t ptext_len, void * ctext, size_t ctext_len);

is a gnutls_cipher_hd_t type
the data to encrypt
the length of data to encrypt
the encrypted data
the available length for encrypted data

This function will encrypt the given data using the algorithm specified by the context. For block ciphers the ptext_len must be a multiple of the block size. For the supported ciphers the encrypted data length will equal the plaintext size.
