Cryptography Libraries


Hello guys, i was wondering whether anyone knows of some good C cryptography libraries. I need them to support atleast Blowfish and AES, plus they got to have good documentation.

Blowfish is small - plus, the whole thing is public domain (like GSL)

download it from the guy who wrote it:

Thumbs up

most of the latest kernel comes with the scatterlist cryptographic library.it supports heaps of ciphers(including blowfish and aes) hmacs ,digest etc.

you will have to compile one of the latest kernel (i am using 2.4.27) and under Cryptographic Options enable the algorithms that you require.They also provide an example module (tcrypt.c) that uses this API.

i would encourage you to visit this site http://lwn.net/Articles/14010/ .

let us know how you go.

Folks, this is kernel-level encryption. You are not supposed to use that from userland, except the random device for initialization.
