Subject: How to reset a pipe?
To: Botan development list <botan-devel at randombit.net>
I have a Pipe created like this:
new Pipe(get_cipher(_cipherSpec, _masterKey, _ivTCP, ENCRYPTION))
and another at the receiving end like this:
new Pipe(get_cipher(_cipherSpec, _masterKey, _ivTCP, DECRYPTION))
And these are using a block cipher mode such as "Serpent/CTR-BE".
The question I have, is after using these two pipes for a bit, how can I
reset them to their initial state for the purposes of the CTR-BE block
The reason I need to do this is that the encrytor can get out of sync with
the decrypter due to a block not getting through, so I would like a way to
reset both of them to ensure they are in sync again for the cipher mode.
