Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

QSslCipher stores information about one cryptographic cipher. It is most commonly used with QSslSocket , either for configuring which ciphers the socket can use, or for displaying the socket’s ciphers to the user.

class PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher(other)

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher(name)

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher(name, protocol)

Parameters

Constructs an empty QSslCipher object.

Constructs a QSslCipher object for the cipher determined by name and protocol. The constructor accepts only supported ciphers (i.e., the name and protocol must identify a cipher in the list of ciphers returned by QSslSocket::supportedCiphers()).

You can call isNull() after construction to check if name and protocol correctly identified a supported cipher.

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.authenticationMethod()
Return type

str

Returns the cipher’s authentication method as a QString .

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.encryptionMethod()
Return type

str

Returns the cipher’s encryption method as a QString .

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.isNull()
Return type

bool

Returns true if this is a null cipher; otherwise returns false.

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.keyExchangeMethod()
Return type

str

Returns the cipher’s key exchange method as a QString .

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.name()
Return type

str

Returns the name of the cipher, or an empty QString if this is a null cipher.

Return type

bool

PySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.__eq__(other)
Parameters

otherPySide6.QtNetwork.QSslCipher

Return type

bool

Returns true if this cipher is the same as other; otherwise, false is returned.

Return type

SslProtocol

Returns the cipher’s protocol type, or UnknownProtocol if QSslCipher is unable to determine the protocol ( protocolString() may contain more information).
