/* LibTomCrypt, modular cryptographic library -- Tom St Denis
 * LibTomCrypt is a library that provides various cryptographic
 * algorithms in a highly modular and flexible manner.
 * The library is free for all purposes without any express
 * guarantee it works.

    EAX implementation, decrypt block of memory, by Tom St Denis
#include "tomcrypt.h"


   Decrypt a block of memory and verify the provided MAC tag with EAX
   @param cipher     The index of the cipher desired
   @param key        The secret key
   @param keylen     The length of the key (octets)
   @param nonce      The nonce data (use once) for the session
   @param noncelen   The length of the nonce data.
   @param header     The session header data
   @param headerlen  The length of the header (octets)
   @param ct         The ciphertext
   @param ctlen      The length of the ciphertext (octets)
   @param pt         [out] The plaintext
   @param tag        The authentication tag provided by the encoder
   @param taglen     [in/out] The length of the tag (octets)
   @param stat       [out] The result of the decryption (1==valid tag, 0==invalid)
   @return CRYPT_OK if successful regardless of the resulting tag comparison
