intel-aes: Hardware accelerated AES encryption and RNG.

[ bsd3, cryptography, library ] [ Propose Tags ]

AES encryption with optional hardware acceleration. Plus, statistically sound, splittable random number generation based on AES. This package is nothing more than a wrapper around the Intel-provided AESNI sample library which also includes a portable software implementation of AES by Brian Gladman. It contains C, assembly, and Haskell sources. And it includes prebuilt dynamic libraries to make the build process less fragile. (Rebuilding requires the yasm assembler.) But prebuilt shared libraries are not included for all platforms yet. (Volunteers needed!) Finally, note that this package is currently triggering some haddock problems. A manually built copy of the documentation can be found at:
