Google "openssl disable padding", the first hit is

If you can do what you want using openssl enc -nopad from the command
line, then you should be able to do the same using the OpenSSL API.

In C, nopad calls EVP_CIPHER_CTX_set_padding(ctx, 0);

I think the equivalent in Ruby is this:

>> OpenSSL::Cipher::AES.instance_methods.grep(/pad/i)
=> ["padding="]
