Name
int Base64_Decode(const byte * in, word32 inLen, byte * out, word32 * outLen)
This function decodes the given Base64 encoded input, in, and stores the result in the output buffer out. It also sets the size written to the output buffer in the variable outLen.
int Base64_Encode(const byte * in, word32 inLen, byte * out, word32 * outLen)
This function encodes the given input, in, and stores the Base64 encoded result in the output buffer out.

This function encodes the given input, in, and stores the Base64 encoded result in the output buffer out. It writes the data with %0A escaped line endings instead of ‘ ’ line endings. Upon successfully completing, this function also sets outLen to the number of bytes written to the output buffer.
int Base64_Encode_NoNl(const byte * in, word32 inLen, byte * out, word32 * outLen)
This function encodes the given input, in, and stores the Base64 encoded result in the output buffer out. It writes the data with no new lines. Upon successfully completing, this function also sets outLen to the number of bytes written to the output buffer.
int Base16_Decode(const byte * in, word32 inLen, byte * out, word32 * outLen)
This function decodes the given Base16 encoded input, in, and stores the result in the output buffer out. It also sets the size written to the output buffer in the variable outLen.
int Base16_Encode(const byte * in, word32 inLen, byte * out, word32 * outLen)

function Base64_Decode

int Base64_Decode(
    const byte * in,
    word32 inLen,
    byte * out,
    word32 * outLen
)

This function decodes the given Base64 encoded input, in, and stores the result in the output buffer out. It also sets the size written to the output buffer in the variable outLen.

Parameters:

  • in pointer to the input buffer to decode
  • inLen length of the input buffer to decode
  • out pointer to the output buffer in which to store the decoded message
  • outLen pointer to the length of the output buffer. Updated with the bytes written at the end of the function call

See:

Return:

  • 0 Returned upon successfully decoding the Base64 encoded input
  • BAD_FUNC_ARG Returned if the output buffer is too small to store the decoded input
  • ASN_INPUT_E Returned if a character in the input buffer falls outside of the Base64 range ([A-Za-z0-9+/=]) or if there is an invalid line ending in the Base64 encoded input

Example

byte encoded[] = { // initialize text to decode };
byte decoded[sizeof(encoded)];
// requires at least (sizeof(encoded) * 3 + 3) / 4 room

int outLen = sizeof(decoded);

if( Base64_Decode(encoded,sizeof(encoded), decoded, &outLen) != 0 ) {
    // error decoding input buffer
}

function Base64_Encode

int Base64_Encode(
    const byte * in,
    word32 inLen,
    byte * out,
    word32 * outLen
)

This function encodes the given input, in, and stores the Base64 encoded result in the output buffer out. It writes the data with the traditional ‘ ’ line endings, instead of escaped %0A line endings. Upon successfully completing, this function also sets outLen to the number of bytes written to the output buffer.

Parameters:

  • in pointer to the input buffer to encode
  • inLen length of the input buffer to encode
  • out pointer to the output buffer in which to store the encoded message
  • outLen pointer to the length of the output buffer in which to store the encoded message

See:

Return:

  • 0 Returned upon successfully decoding the Base64 encoded input
  • BAD_FUNC_ARG Returned if the output buffer is too small to store the encoded input
  • BUFFER_E Returned if the output buffer runs out of room while encoding

Example

byte plain[] = { // initialize text to encode };
byte encoded[MAX_BUFFER_SIZE];

int outLen = sizeof(encoded);

if( Base64_Encode(plain, sizeof(plain), encoded, &outLen) != 0 ) {
    // error encoding input buffer
}

function Base64_EncodeEsc

int Base64_EncodeEsc(
    const byte * in,
    word32 inLen,
    byte * out,
    word32 * outLen
)

This function encodes the given input, in, and stores the Base64 encoded result in the output buffer out. It writes the data with %0A escaped line endings instead of ‘ ’ line endings. Upon successfully completing, this function also sets outLen to the number of bytes written to the output buffer.

Parameters:

  • in pointer to the input buffer to encode
  • inLen length of the input buffer to encode
  • out pointer to the output buffer in which to store the encoded message
  • outLen pointer to the length of the output buffer in which to store the encoded message

See:

Return:

  • 0 Returned upon successfully decoding the Base64 encoded input
  • BAD_FUNC_ARG Returned if the output buffer is too small to store the encoded input
  • BUFFER_E Returned if the output buffer runs out of room while encoding
  • ASN_INPUT_E Returned if there is an error processing the decode on the input message

Example

byte plain[] = { // initialize text to encode };
byte encoded[MAX_BUFFER_SIZE];

int outLen = sizeof(encoded);

if( Base64_EncodeEsc(plain, sizeof(plain), encoded, &outLen) != 0 ) {
    // error encoding input buffer
}

function Base64_Encode_NoNl

int Base64_Encode_NoNl(

function Base16_Decode

int Base16_Decode(

Parameters:

  • in pointer to the input buffer to decode
  • inLen length of the input buffer to decode
  • out pointer to the output buffer in which to store the decoded message

  • BAD_FUNC_ARG Returned if the output buffer is too small to store the decoded input or if the input length is not a multiple of two
  • ASN_INPUT_E Returned if a character in the input buffer falls outside of the Base16 range ([0-9A-F])

Example

byte encoded[] = { // initialize text to decode };
byte decoded[sizeof(encoded)];
int outLen = sizeof(decoded);

if( Base16_Decode(encoded,sizeof(encoded), decoded, &outLen) != 0 ) {
    // error decoding input buffer
}

function Base16_Encode

int Base16_Encode(
    const byte * in,
    word32 inLen,
    byte * out,
    word32 * outLen
)

Encode input to base16 output.

Parameters:

  • in Pointer to input buffer to be encoded.

Return:

  • 0 Success
  • BAD_FUNC_ARG Returns if in, out, or outLen is null or if outLen is less than 2 times inLen plus 1.
