#### How to Encrypt with no Padding (encrypted output size equals input size)

Block encryption algorithms, such as AES, will produce output that is a multiple of the algorithm’s block size. For AES, the output is a multiple of 16 bytes. However, this is for the typically used cipher modes “CBC” (Cipher Block Chaining) and “ECB” (Electronic Cookbook). There are other cipher modes that turn a block algorithm into a stream cipher.
