Readme for nettle-0.1.0


This is the source repository for the "nettle" cabal package, which is a safe binding to the nettle library.

The binding supports all hash functions, cipher functions, cipher modes and keyed hash functions included in nettle (additionally the AEAD-CCM cipher mode is implemented in pure haskell).

Not included are the PBKDF2 key derivation functions, the public-key algorithms (RSA, DSA, elliptic curves, ECDSA), the pseudo-random generators (lagged Fibonacci and Yarrow), and the base64/base16 encoding/decoding functions.

Also not included are the undocumented ASN1, PGP, PKCS1 and "s-expression" functions.

The haddock generated documentation is available at

The test vectors were extracted from the nettle library and ported to haskell; they come from different sources.
