[iaik-ssl] What is the "padding"?




Hello!

Does anybody know what "PADDING" is?

In fact in IAIK API I have seen algorithms like:

3DES/CBC/PKCS5Padding

or

3DES/CBC/NoPadding

What is the difference between using "padding" and NOT using it in
cryptographic algorithms?

Anybody has some link to suggest me that speaks about "padding" so that I
can learn something about it?


Thanks a lot!
                  Luca
