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
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 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
- pkcs1-conv - converts PKCS#1 keys to sexp format.
- nettle-hash - command-line tool to compute message digests such as SHA-1.
