libmcrypt 2.5.8 Description:
libmcrypt is the library which implements all the algorithms and modes found in mcrypt. libmcrypt library is currently under development but it seems to work pretty good. Unlike most encryption libraries libmcrypt does not have everything (random number generators, hashes, hmac implementation, key exchange, public key encryption etc.). Libmcrypt only implements an interface to access block and stream encryption algorithms. It's purpose was to assist in the development of mcrypt by providing a uniform interface to access several different encryption algorithms, so that the main program is independent of the encryption algorithms and the modes used.
