I too had problems with this. It works for me on PHP 5.1.2-1+b1 (cli) (built: Mar 20 2006 04:17:24).You must specify the certificate in PEM format, and use "ssl" as the key for the resource context.How to create PEM file? go here:

(Video) Hikvision Ivms 4200 verification code, video is encrypted, input the stream key error fix

May be the stream_socket_server() works fine yet, but, Erik, it is NOT the point exactly.SMTP services listen on an _unencrypted_ stream. An implemetation of the extension for secure SMTP over transport layer security ( needs the ability (provided by stream_socket_enable_crypto()) to encrypting stream belated. It does not work and this is the point.

[2006-05-26 18:31 UTC] e at osterman dot com

Eddi, you indeed appear to be correct. I was writing an SSL TCP Server, which gave off the same error message so I assumed they were related. My fix there did NOT work for the TLS implementation. As you mentioned, TLS is a different way of implementing SSL, which as it stands currently in PHP5, I aggree it appears to be broken. There is one issue with your above example. The wrapper should be "ssl" even for "tls" communications (but that doesn't make it work).Wez talks more about it in Furlong:{{{The context options for openssl, including tls, are all bundled under the name "ssl". I think your code should probably look more like this:$c = stream_context_create(array( "ssl" => array( "local_cert" => "sec.pem", ... other options ... ));}}}

[2006-05-27 04:30 UTC] eddi at ai000 dot de

Sorry. You misconceive or misread it. Please understand difference between server sockets and client sockets.There are no way to set context options and to give this context stream_socket_enable_crypto().

[2006-05-31 21:00 UTC] e at osterman dot com

The below example calls stream_socket_enable_crypto on client stream socket and on a server stream socket. It works on my version of PHP 5.1.2 just fine. So, if it doesn't work for you then, we can determine what version of PHP5 is broken.This is the output.e@eon:~/dev/examples/tls$ ./tls-server.php1: STARTTLSError (if any):2: EHLO worldAs you see... no errors. It got the "EHLO world" command sent over an TLS channel from the client just fine.e@eon:~/dev/examples/tls$ ./tls-client.php1: 220 ESMTP2: 250 STARTTLSbool(true)This is the code that produced the output. Below is the code I use to make a sample TLS SMTP server. It works perfectly on my platform and version of PHP. The output from the tests are above.#!/usr/bin/php5<?php// Hello World!

How does stream cipher fails to protect message authentication? ›

b) A stream cipher cannot protect message integrity because it is vulnerable to attacks in depth. For example, fund transfer messages are very highly structured. Suppose an attacker knew bytes 37-42 of such a message contained the amount to be transferred.

Why is stream cipher not secure? ›

Stream ciphers are vulnerable to "key re-use" attacks, also called "two-time pad" attacks. This type of vulnerability occurs when you use the same key more than once because it is trivial to XOR the two ciphertext strings and nullify the key, which leaves only XOR'ed plain text.

Why is it so difficult to unencrypt RSA encryption? ›

Messages can be encrypted by anyone, via the public key, but can only be decoded by someone who knows the prime numbers. The security of RSA relies on the practical difficulty of factoring the product of two large prime numbers, the "factoring problem". Breaking RSA encryption is known as the RSA problem.

How do I enable encryption? ›

How do I enable platform encryption? ›

From Setup, in the Quick Find box, enter Platform Encryption, and then select Key Management. The Status column in the Key Management view identifies tenant secrets as either Active, Archived, or Destroyed. Select a tenant secret type from the list. To generate a new tenant secret, click Generate Tenant Secret.

Is stream cipher same as encryption? ›

A stream cipher is an encryption technique that works byte by byte to transform plain text into code that's unreadable to anyone without the proper key. Stream ciphers are linear, so the same key both encrypts and decrypts messages. And while cracking them can be difficult, hackers have managed to do it.

What is an example of a stream cipher encryption? ›

The encryption standard relies on a pseudorandom family that uses a length-increasing function and a 160-bit key to map the 32-bit string to a string of any length. Other examples of stream ciphers include PANAMA, Scream, Rabbit, HC-256, and Grain, among others.

What is the difference between stream encryption and block encryption? ›

A block cipher breaks down plaintext messages into fixed-size blocks before converting them into ciphertext using a key. Encrypting information bit-by-bit. A stream cipher, on the other hand, breaks a plaintext message down into single bits, which then are converted individually into ciphertext using key bits.

Is SSL a stream cipher? ›

Originally, SSL used RC4 (which is a stream cipher); then CBC mode (first DES/3DES and then AES) was added. In the latest version (TLS 1.3), they discarded RC4 and CBC mode entirely, in favor of AEAD modes (GCM and Chacha20/Poly1305).

What are stream ciphers vulnerable to? ›

Stream ciphers are vulnerable to attack if the same key is used twice (depth of two) or more. Say we send messages A and B of the same length, both encrypted using same key, K. The stream cipher produces a string of bits C(K) the same length as the messages.

Can you crack RSA encryption? ›

The basic claim of the paper, published last Christmas by 24 Chinese researchers, is that they have found an algorithm that enables 2,048-bit RSA keys to be broken even with the relatively low-power quantum computers available today.

How do I know if encryption is enabled? ›

Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & Security > Device encryption. If Device encryption doesn't appear, it isn't available. If device encryption is turned off, select Turn on.

Should I enable encryption? ›

Device encryption is a feature intended to protect your data. It should be enabled, but you should use it with caution. You should make sure you have your recovery key in case you need it, and you should have a backup of your files in case you lose access to the device.

Why would you want to enable encryption? ›

The primary purpose of encryption is to protect the confidentiality of digital data stored on computer systems or transmitted over the internet or any other computer network. In addition to security, the adoption of encryption is often driven by the need to meet compliance regulations.

Why is Encrypt option disabled? ›

This is because the system will lose the files required to make encryptions. Windows versions like Windows 10 Home do not support content encryption. This might be the cause of the encryption option being greyed out. This implies that file encryption cannot be done on Windows 10 Home using the built-in method.

How do I change encryption mode? ›

Head to the settings page of your router, which can be accessed by inputting the router's IP address into a web browser. Once at Wi-Fi router settings, change the default password, network name, and default username, and enable any advanced encryption types available.

How do I enable network encryption on my router? ›

To encrypt your network, simply update your router settings to either WPA3 Personal or WPA2 Personal. WPA3 is the newer — and best — encryption available, but both will work to scramble your information.

What is encrypted stream? ›

A stream cipher is an encryption algorithm that uses a symmetric key to encrypt and decrypt a given amount of data. A symmetric cipher key, as opposed to an asymmetric cipher key, is an encryption tool that is used in both encryption and decryption.

What is the best stream cipher? ›

Popular stream ciphers

RC4 - RC4, which stands for Rivest Cipher 4, is the most widely used of all stream ciphers, particularly in software. It's also known as ARCFOUR or ARC4.

Can you use AES as a stream cipher? ›

AES-CTR, also known as counter mode, is kind of the default stream cipher mode for AES. It as an advantage in the sense that each encryption doesn't rely on previous ciphertext, that it specifies a nonce / counter block.

Is AES a block or stream cipher? ›

AES is a block cipher developed by two Belgian cryptographers Vincent Rijmen and Joan Daemen in the late-1990s, and was standardized by the American NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in 2001. AES functions by encrypting a 128-bit block of data using an either 128, 192, or 256-bit key.

What encryption does cipher use? ›

The cipher analyses the original and plaintext data to generate ciphertext that seems to be random data. The same encryption key is applied to data, in the same way, using symmetric encryption methods, whether the goal is to convert plaintext to ciphertext or ciphertext to plaintext.

What does enable stream encryption mean? ›

If you enabling the Video and Image Encryption, the device's live view, playback, and alarm message will be encrypted.

3 Types of Encryption to Protect Your Data
  • Symmetric. The symmetric encryption method uses a single key both to encrypt and decrypt the data. ...
  • Asymmetric. The second major encryption method is asymmetric encryption, also sometimes known as public key encryption. ...
  • Hashing.

Which of the following is a form of stream encryption? ›

The Rivest Cipher 4 (RC4) algorithm is a stream cipher, meaning that data is encrypted 1 byte at a time instead of an entire data block (more than 1 byte) being encrypted at once.

What is SSL and why is it not enough when it comes to encryption? ›

SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, is a security protocol that is used to establish an encrypted link between a web server and a web browser in order to safeguard data in transit; when it comes to cloud security, SSL is critical in encrypting sensitive data transfer.

Can a stream cipher be perfectly secure? ›

And yes it would be perfectly secure. One of the requirement of the Perfect secrecy is the key space has to have the same size as message space. Hence the key and the message must have the same length.

Does SSL count as encryption? ›

SSL is standard technology for securing an internet connection by encrypting data sent between a website and a browser (or between two servers). It prevents hackers from seeing or stealing any information transferred, including personal or financial data.
