nocrypto - Simpler crypto
nocrypto is a small cryptographic library that puts emphasis on the applicative style and ease of use. It includes basic ciphers (AES, 3DES, RC4), hashes (MD5, SHA1, SHA2), public-key primitives (RSA, DSA, DH) and a strong RNG (Fortuna).
RSA timing attacks are countered by blinding. AES timing attacks are avoided by delegating to AES-NI.

If RNG fails with
Fatal error: exception Uncommon.Boot.Unseeded_generator, you need to seed it.

Nocrypto has CPU acceleration support (
AES-NI), but no run-time autodetection yet. You compiled the library with acceleration, but you are using it on a machine that does not support it.
pkg/pkg.ml build --accelerate false force-disables non-portable code.
pkg/pkg.ml build --accelerate true force-enables non-portable code.
The flag can also be set via the
NOCRYPTO_ACCELERATE environment variable. When unset, it maches the capabilities of the build machine.
