OpenSSL "enc -bf-cbc" for Blowfish/CBC Encryption

Tutorial notes and example codes are provided OpenSSL 'enc -bf-cbc' command for Blowfish encryption in CBC mode. Topics include introduction of CBC (Cipher Block Chaining) cipher operation mode; Literal Key options to specify secret key and IV directly; Salted Key and Random Salt options to specify secret key and IV indirectly; Prepended cipher headers; PKCS#5 standard padding.
