Do you think we are missing an alternative of rust-crypto or a related project?
A (mostly) pure-Rust implementation of various common cryptographic algorithms.
Rust-Crypto seeks to create practical, auditable, pure-Rust implementations of common cryptographic algorithms with a minimum amount of assembly code where appropriate. The x86-64, x86, and ARM architectures are supported, although the x86-64 architecture receives the most testing.
Rust-Crypto targets the current, stable build of Rust. If you are having issues while using an older version, please try upgrading to the latest stable.
Rust-Crypto has not been thoroughly audited for correctness, so any use where security is important is not recommended at this time.
To use Rust-Crypto, add the following to your Cargo.toml:
[dependencies] rust-crypto = "^0.2"
and the following to your crate root:
extern crate crypto;
Contributions are extremely welcome. The most significant needs are help adding documentation, implementing new algorithms, and general cleanup and improvement of the code. By submitting a pull request you are agreeing to make you work available under the license terms of the Rust-Crypto project.
Rust-Crypto is dual licensed under the MIT and Apache 2.0 licenses, the same licenses as the Rust compiler.
Rust-Crypto already supports a significant number of algorithms and with your help it will support even more in the future. Currently supported algorithms include:
- ECB, CBC, and CTR block cipher modes
- PKCS padding for CBC block cipher mode
- Salsa20 and XSalsa20
- Sha2 (All fixed output size variants)
