[Botan-devel] AES/CTR-BE nonces

When performing AES-256 encryption in CTR mode, should nonces be considered
synonymous with initialization vectors? Specifically, when performing
encryption or decryption should the nonce be included as the third parameter
in get_cipher()? Some AES/CTR libraries seem to have 8-byte nonces, which
can't be set as an IV in Botan because they are too small.
