Field Documentation

◆ header

struct GNUNET_MessageHeader TCPFinish::header

◆ hmac

struct GNUNET_ShortHashCode TCPFinish::hmac

HMAC for the following encrypted message.

Yes, we MUST use mac-then-encrypt here, as we want to hide the message sizes on the wire (zero plaintext design!). Using CTR mode padding oracle attacks do not apply. Besides, due to the use of ephemeral keys (hopefully with effective replay protection from monotonic time!) the attacker is limited in using the oracle.
