I am looking for a sponsor for my package libtomcrypt which is an
OpenSSH-like library (I depend on libtomcrypt for another package I am
LibTomCrypt is a fairly comprehensive, modular and portable
cryptographic toolkit that provides developers with a vast array of
well known published block ciphers, one-way hash functions, chaining
modes, pseudo-random number generators, public key cryptography and a
plethora of other routines.
* Package name : libtomcrypt
Version : 1.17-1
Upstream Author : Tom St Denis
* URL : http://libtom.org
* License : Public Domain
Section : libs
It builds these binary packages:
libtomcrypt0 - Easy to use cryptographic library [runtime]
libtomcrypt0-dev - Easy to use cryptographic library [development]
libtomcrypt0-doc - Easy to use cryptographic library [documentation]
The package is lintian and linda clean.
The upload would fix these bugs: 424961
The package can be found on mentors.debian.net:
- URL: http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/l/libtomcrypt
- Source repository: deb-src http://mentors.debian.net/debian unstable
main contrib non-free
I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.
Please, take the time to review the package. It builds fine in a gutsy
More detailed information:
* Public domain and open source.
* Written entirely in portable ISO C source (except for things
like RNGs for natural
* Builds out of the box on virtually every box. All that is
required is GCC for the
source to build.
* Includes a 180+ page user manual in PDF format (with working
examples in it)
* Block Ciphers
o Ciphers come with an ECB encrypt/decrypt, setkey and
o All ciphers have the same prototype which facilitates
using multiple ciphers
o Some of the ciphers are flexible in terms of code size
and memory usage.
o Ciphers Supported.
+ Rijndael (aka AES)
+ SAFER (K64, SK64, K128, SK128)
+ DES, 3DES
+ Anubis (with optional tweak as proposed by the developers)
* Chaining Modes
o Modes come with a start, encrypt/decrypt and set/get IV
o Mode supported.
+ IEEE LRW mode
+ F8 Chaining Mode
* One-Way Hash Functions
o Hashes come with init, process, done and self-test interfaces.
o All hashes use the same prototypes for the interfaces.
o Hashes supported.
+ RIPE-MD 128/160/256/320
* Message Authentication
o FIPS-198 HMAC (supports all hashes)
o CMAC, also known as OMAC1 (supports all ciphers)
o PMAC Authentication
o Pelican MAC
* Message Encrypt+Authenticate Modes
o EAX Mode
o OCB Mode
o CCM Mode (NIST spec)
o GCM Mode (IEEE spec)
* Pseudo-Random Number Generators
o Yarrow (based algorithm)
o Support for /dev/random, /dev/urandom and the Win32 CSP RNG
* Public Key Algorithms
o RSA (using PKCS #1 v1.5 and v2.1)
o ECC (EC-DSA X9.62 signatures, X9.63 EC-DH)
+ With fast Fixed Point ECC support as well
+ X9.63 import/export of public keys
o DSA (Users make their own groups)
o The math routines are pluggable which means you can use
your own math
provider if you want.
* Other standards
o PKCS #1 (v1.5 and v2.1 padding)
o PKCS #5
o ASN.1 DER for SEQUENCE, INTEGER, BIT STRING, OCTET
STRING, OBJECT IDENTIFIER,
IA5 STRING, PRINTABLE STRING, UTCTIME, CHOICE and NULL types.
* Portable code builds out of the box with a conforming C compiler
o Builds out of the box with platform optimizations for
i386 (x86_32, gcc and msvc), x86_64 and PPC32
