The DES support was originally based upon libdes, a freely
available implementation of this algorithm, written by Eric Young. I used
version 3.23 directly.
The higher versions of this library are now part of SSLeay, Erics
implementation of the Secure Sockets Layer.
Because of this I have revamped the des loader code to use
libcrypto.so from SSLeay or libdes.so, in this order.
This had the additional benefit of being able to glue in even more
crypto algorithms. These are md2, sha1 and rc2.
The official homepage can be found at http://www.ssleay.org/. A FAQ is
trfcrypt requires a shared library version of libdes. People
without such don't loose however.
The unix-specific makefile contains the target ``libdes''. This
will generate a shared library for libdes. It assumes that
the libdes source distribution is available as subdirectory
libdes (a sibling to unix !).
A binary distribution for Windows® is available, at the master
location and the associated mirrors. This is not a binary
distribution of libdes alone, but of SSLeayLib. The
shared library crypto32.dll contains the required DES
Either rename this DLL to libdes.dll or uncomment the
definition of LIBDES in makefile.vc before
compilation of trfcrypt.
- I have no information about its availability on MacIntoshes.
I'm sorry, but SSLeay was to big to be included in the
Makefile. Instructions on how make a shared library for linux, sun,
solaris and irix are part of it however (as of version 0.6.6).
