Why not look at the documentation?
Anyway, it looks to me as if there's a function BF_set_key that takes
a variable length key as input. Give it a 448 bit key and I would expect
everything to be ok.
By the way, a 448 bit key is huge. Why are you using such a big key?
And why aren't you using AES?
I am using the 56 character key. I am assuming that there are 8 bits
in a byte which equal 448 bit. Is this all there is to setting up
Blowfish to a 448 Bit mode? This was never clear from the
documentation, which is part of the part of the problem with the
documentation. I don't want to be an encryption expert. I want to
use the encryption technology and move on to the next part of the
