      Description

      ESE on OS X has not historically supported AES256-GCM. This is because it used an old version of OpenSSL. Going forward, it's native cryptography will not support GCM. When built with a new copy of OpenSSL, it should continue to not support GCM to maintain compatibility with the native cryptography.
