HsOpenSSL is an (incomplete) OpenSSL binding for Haskell. It can
generate RSA and DSA keys, read and write PEM files, generate
message digests, sign and verify messages, encrypt and decrypt
messages. But since OpenSSL is a very large library, it is uneasy
to cover every parts of it.
Features that aren't (yet) supported:
- SSL network connection
- ssl(3) functionalities aren't fully
covered yet. See OpenSSL.Session.
- Complete coverage of Low-level API to symmetric ciphers
high-level APIs (EVP and BIO) are fully available. But I believe
no one will be lost without functions like DES_set_odd_parity.
- Low-level API to asymmetric ciphers
- Only a high-level API
(EVP) is available. But I believe no one will complain about the
absence of functions like RSA_public_encrypt.
- Key generation of Diffie-Hellman algorithm
- Only RSA and DSA
keys can currently be generated.
- X.509 v3 extension handling
- It should be supported in the
- Low-level API to message digest functions
- Just use EVP
instead of something like MD5_Update.
- API to PKCS#12 functionality
- It should be covered someday.
- BIO isn't needed because we are Haskell hackers. Though
HsOpenSSL itself uses BIO internally.
- ENGINE cryptographic module
- The default implementations work
very well, don't they?
So if you find out any features you want aren't supported, you must
write your own patch (or take over the HsOpenSSL project). Happy
