Summary     : Public domain C++ class library of cryptographic schemes
Description :
Crypto++ Library is a free C++ class library of cryptographic schemes.
See http://www.cryptopp.com/ for a list of supported algorithms.

One purpose of Crypto++ is to act as a repository of public domain
(not copyrighted) source code. Although the library is copyrighted as a
compilation, the individual files in it are in the public domain.

Update Information:

Crypto++ 5.6.1

The main changes from version 5.6.0:

- added support for AES-NI and CLMUL instruction sets in AES and 
- removed WAKE-CFB
- fixed several bugs in the SHA-256 x86/x64 assembly code:
   * incorrect hash on non-SSE2 x86 machines on non-aligned input
   * incorrect hash on x86 machines when input crosses 0x80000000
   * incorrect hash on x64 when compiled with GCC with ptimizations enabled
- switched to a public domain implementation of MARS

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update cryptopp' at the command line.
