EVP_RC4(3)			    OpenSSL			    EVP_RC4(3)

NAME
       EVP_rc4,	EVP_rc4_40, EVP_rc4_hmac_md5 - EVP RC4 stream cipher

SYNOPSIS
	#include <openssl/evp.h>

	const EVP_CIPHER *EVP_rc4(void)
	const EVP_CIPHER *EVP_rc4_40(void)
	const EVP_CIPHER *EVP_rc4_hmac_md5(void)

DESCRIPTION
       The RC4 stream cipher for EVP.

       EVP_rc4()
	   RC4 stream cipher. This is a	variable key length cipher with	a
	   default key length of 128 bits.

       EVP_rc4_40()
	   RC4 stream cipher with 40 bit key length.

	   WARNING: this function is obsolete. Its usage should	be replaced
	   with	the EVP_rc4() and the EVP_CIPHER_CTX_set_key_length()
	   functions.

       EVP_rc4_hmac_md5()
	   Authenticated encryption with the RC4 stream	cipher with MD5	as
	   HMAC.

	   WARNING: this is not	intended for usage outside of TLS and requires
	   calling of some undocumented	ctrl functions.	These ciphers do not
	   conform to the EVP AEAD interface.

RETURN VALUES
       These functions return an EVP_CIPHER structure that contains the
       implementation of the symmetric cipher. See EVP_CIPHER_meth_new(3) for
       details of the EVP_CIPHER structure.
