## Binary packages built by this source

- libhogweed2: low level cryptographic library (public-key cryptos)
Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in more or

less any context: In crypto toolkits for object-oriented languages (C++,

Python, Pike, ...), in applications like LSH or GNUPG, or even in kernel

space.

.

It tries to solve a problem of providing a common set of cryptographic

algorithms for higher-level applications by implementing a

context-independent set of cryptographic algorithms. In that light, Nettle

doesn't do any memory allocation or I/O, it simply provides the

cryptographic algorithms for the application to use in any environment and

in any way it needs.

.

This package contains the asymmetric cryptographic algorithms, which,

require the GNU multiple precision arithmetic library (libgmp) for

their large integer computations.

- libnettle4: low level cryptographic library (symmetric and one-way cryptos)
Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in more or

less any context: In crypto toolkits for object-oriented languages (C++,

Python, Pike, ...), in applications like LSH or GNUPG, or even in kernel

space.

This package contains the symmetric and one-way cryptographic

algorithms. To avoid having this package depend on libgmp, the

asymmetric cryptos reside in a separate library, libhogweed.

.

This package contains binary utilities that accompany the library:

.

- nettle-lfib-stream - generates a pseudo-random stream, using the Knuth

lfib (non-cryptographic) pseudo-random generator.

- sexp-conv - conversion tool for handling the different flavours of sexp

syntax.

- pkcs1-conv - converts PKCS#1 keys to sexp format.

- nettle-hash - command-line tool to compute message digests such as SHA-1.
