Cryptlib by Peter Gutmann is a security toolkit that allows even less experienced programmers to add strong encryption and authentication services to their programs, security features that are becoming more and more indispensable. The library attempts to hide the low-level details of encryption/decryption and authentication from programmers, allowing them to quickly make their projects more secure. Some of the symmetric encryption (private key) and authentication algorithms that cryptlib supports include the following:
· AES (Rijndael)
· DES, 3DES
· RC2, RC4, RC5
The Following Hash Algorithms Are Available In The Library:
· MD2, MD4, MD5
It Offers Services Such As:
It Features Various Hashed Message Authentication Code Algorithms:
· HMAC-MD5, HMAC-SHA, HMAC-RIPEMD-160
Finally, Asymmetric (public/private Key) Encryption Algorithms Such As The Following Are Available:
· Diffie-Hellman, DSA, RSA
cryptlib can also be used with a variety of crypto devices (for example, Fortezza cards and Smart cards).
The library is free if used in personal, freeware, or shareware projects. The library is written in C. ActiveX and C++ wrappers are provided. The project is OSI Certified Open Source Software.

Predicted future versions and notices:
The doDownload.com constantly monitors the update of all programs, including information from the cryptlib 3.0 changelog file, however sometimes it can happen that data are not complete or are outdated.We assume that author continue's to develop 3.1 version with further advanced features, and soon you will be informed. Equally important 4.0 upgrades of the program we will continue to monitor. Full cryptlib description has been compared with the overall software database and our algorithm has found the following applications (are showed below).
