RFS: libcrypt-hcesha-perl -- Perl extension for one way hash chaining encryption using SHA


I am searching for an sponsor for my libcrypt-hcesha-perl package.

* Package name    : libcrypt-hcesha-perl
  Version         : 0.70
  Upstream Author : Eric Estabrooks <eric@urbanrage.com>
* URL             : http://search.cpan.org/~eestabroo

  Description     : Perl extension for one way hash chaining encryption using SHA

 This module implements a chaining block cipher using a one way hash.  This
 method of encryption is the same that is used by radius (RFC2138) and is also
 described in Applied Cryptography.
 Two interfaces are provided in the module.  The first is straight block
 encryption/decryption the second does base64 mime encoding/decoding of the
 encrypted/decrypted blocks.
 The idea is the the two sides have a shared secret that supplies one of the
 keys and a randomly generated block of bytes provides the second key.  The
 random key is passed in cleartext between the two sides.
 An example client and server are packaged as modules with this module.  They
 are used in the tests. They can be found in the examples directory.
