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.

QSslCipher

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 supportedCiphers() ).

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

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.authenticationMethod()
Return type

unicode

Returns the cipher’s authentication method as a QString .

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.encryptionMethod()
Return type

unicode

Returns the cipher’s encryption method as a QString .

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.isNull()
Return type

bool

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

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.keyExchangeMethod()
Return type

unicode

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.name()
Return type

unicode

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

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.__ne__(other)
Parameters

otherQSslCipher

Return type

bool

Returns true if this cipher is not the same as other ; otherwise, false is returned.

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.__eq__(other)
Parameters

otherQSslCipher

Return type

bool

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

PySide2.QtNetwork.QSslCipher.protocol()
Return type

SslProtocol

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

Return type

int

Returns the number of bits used by the cipher.
