Get Started with Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives Cryptography for Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) Cryptography is a software library that provides a broad range of secure and efficient cryptographic algorithm implementations.

Prerequisites (macOS*)

Set Environment Variables
After installing Intel IPP Cryptography, set the
IPPCRYPTOROOT
,
LD_LIBRARY_PATH
environment variables by running the script appropriate to your target platform architecture. The scripts are available in
<install dir>/ippcp/bin
.
By default, the
<install dir>
is
/opt/intel/oneapi
.

Build and Run Your First Intel® IPP Cryptography Application (macOS*)

This application consists of two sections:
  1. Get the library layer name and version.
  2. Show the hardware optimizations used by the selected library layer and supported by CPU.
To build the code example above, follow the steps:
  1. Paste the code into the editor of your choice.
  2. Make sure the compiler and Intel IPP Cryptography variables are set in your shell.
  3. Compile with the following command:
    icc ippcptest.cpp -o ippcptest -I$IPPCRYPTOROOT/include -L$IPPCRYPTOROOT/lib/<arch> -lippcp
    .
  4. Run the application.
