Subject: [boost] [gsoc][student] Proposal


My proposal is to have a crypto library that provides high-level facilities. The library has different encapsulation layers. Within the low-level (internal) there are algorithms that share the same concept i.e.

class block_cipher_type:
        + setkey(const void* key, size_type key_size) -> void;
        + encrypt(void* output, const void* input) -> const void;
        + decrypt(void* output, const void* input) -> const void;

class stream_cipher_type:
        + create() -> void;
        + update(const void* input, size_type output) -> void;
        + update_final_block(const void* input, size_type output) -> void;
and etc.

Also entropy sources that use kernel specific entropies with addition of asynchronous generators.

Finally a std:: iostream interface for cryptographically transformed streams. That use a transformer for the cryptographical transformation.

Any interest???
