openssl_pkcs7_encrypt -- Encrypt an S/MIME message
bool openssl_pkcs7_encrypt ( string infile, string outfile, mixed recipcerts, array headers [, int flags [, int cipherid]] )
openssl_pkcs7_encrypt() takes the contents of the
file named infile and encrypts them using an RC2
40-bit cipher so that they can only be read by the intended recipients
specified by recipcerts, which is either a
lone X.509 certificate, or an array of X.509 certificates.
headers is an array of headers that
will be prepended to the data after it has been encrypted.
flags can be used to specify options that affect
the encoding process - see PKCS7
headers can be either an associative array
keyed by header name, or an indexed array, where each element contains
a single header line.
Cipher can be selected with cipherid since PHP 5.
