NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       crypto - OpenSSL cryptographic library

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  OpenSSL  crypto  library  implements  a wide range of
       cryptographic algorithms used in  various  Internet  standards.
  The  services provided by this library are used by
       the OpenSSL implementations of SSL, TLS  and  S/MIME,  and
       they  have  also  been used to implement SSH, OpenPGP, and
       other cryptographic standards.

       The libcrypto consists of a number  of  sublibraries  that
       implement the individual algorithms.

       The  functionality  includes  symmetric encryption, public
       key cryptography and key agreement, certificate  handling,
       cryptographic  hash  functions and a cryptographic pseudorandom
 number generator.  SYMMETRIC CIPHERS
