CMS_ENVELOPEDDATA_CREATE(3ossl)	    OpenSSL    CMS_ENVELOPEDDATA_CREATE(3ossl)

NAME
       CMS_EnvelopedData_create_ex, CMS_EnvelopedData_create,
       CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create, CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create_ex - Create
       CMS envelope

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/cms.h>

	CMS_ContentInfo	*
	CMS_EnvelopedData_create_ex(const EVP_CIPHER *cipher, OSSL_LIB_CTX *libctx,
				    const char *propq);
	CMS_ContentInfo	*CMS_EnvelopedData_create(const	EVP_CIPHER *cipher);

	CMS_ContentInfo	*
	CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create_ex(const EVP_CIPHER *cipher, OSSL_LIB_CTX *libctx,
					const char *propq);
	CMS_ContentInfo	*CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create(const EVP_CIPHER *cipher);

DESCRIPTION
       CMS_EnvelopedData_create_ex() creates a CMS_ContentInfo structure with
       a type NID_pkcs7_enveloped. cipher is the symmetric cipher to use.  The
       library context libctx and the property query propq are used when
       retrieving algorithms from providers.

       CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create_ex() creates a CMS_ContentInfo structure
       with a type NID_id_smime_ct_authEnvelopedData. cipher is	the symmetric
       AEAD cipher to use. Currently only AES variants with GCM	mode are
       supported. The library context libctx and the property query propq are
       used when retrieving algorithms from providers.

       The algorithm passed in the cipher parameter must support ASN1 encoding
       of its parameters.

       The recipients can be added later using CMS_add1_recipient_cert(3) or
       CMS_add0_recipient_key(3).

       The CMS_ContentInfo structure needs to be finalized using CMS_final(3)
       and then	freed using CMS_ContentInfo_free(3).

       CMS_EnvelopedData_create() and  CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create are
       similar to CMS_EnvelopedData_create_ex()	and
       CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create_ex() but use default values	of NULL	for
       the library context libctx and the property query propq.

NOTES
       Although	CMS_EnvelopedData_create() and CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create()
       allocate	a new CMS_ContentInfo structure, they are not usually used in
       applications.  The wrappers CMS_encrypt(3) and CMS_decrypt(3) are often
       used instead.

RETURN VALUES
       If the allocation fails,	CMS_EnvelopedData_create() and
       CMS_AuthEnvelopedData_create() return NULL and set an error code	that
       can be obtained by ERR_get_error(3). Otherwise they return a pointer to
       the newly allocated structure.

HISTORY
       The CMS_EnvelopedData_create_ex() method	was added in OpenSSL 3.0.
