Botan For Mac Publisher's description
from Jack Lloyd
Free crypto library written in C++
Botan is a crypto library written in C++ that provides a wide variety of cryptographic algorithms, formats, and protocols.
Botan has been considered stable since 2002. The license makes it free for use as part of any commercial or free software without restriction. Those who desire it can also purchase a commercial support contract, or arrange for custom development work.
Botan currently runs on MacOS X, Windows, and many common Unix/Unix-like/POSIX operating systems (including Linux, Solaris, BeOS, BSD, and QNX), and on many hardware platforms, including PowerPC, SPARC, x86, x86-64, IA-64, Alpha, MIPS, and ARM.
Botan is written in portable C++98, and includes optional platform-specific modules which provide services such as compression (using zlib or bzip2), entropy gathering, secure memory allocation, and support for hardware crypto devices.
Botan currently has support for the crypto accellerators made by AEP Systems, and can easily be extended to support other hardware accellerators in the future; there is also a document explaining how to get your hardware supported by Botan.
What's New in This Release:В· This release is mostly minor cleanups and fixes.
В· One incompatible change is that the format-preserving encryption routines have been renamed, because fpe_encrypt and fpe_decrypt left little room for reasonable namespacing when other FPE methods (like the ones currently under consideration by NIST) are added. The new interface is described in the manual.
В· This release has improved support for the BeOS clone Haiku (GCC 4 only)
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
