nacl - Pure Go implementation of the NaCL set of API's

  •    Go

This is a pure Go implementation of the API's available in NaCL: Compared with the implementation in, this library offers all of the API's present in NaCL, better compatibility with NaCL implementations written in other languages, as well as some utilities for generating and loading keys and nonces, and encrypting messages. Many of them are simple wrappers around functions or libraries available in the Go standard library, or in the package. Other code I copied directly into this library with the appropriate LICENSE; if a function is longer than, say, 5 lines, I didn't write it myself. There are no dependencies outside of the standard library or

mesalink - MesaLink is a memory-safe and OpenSSL-compatible TLS library.

  •    Rust

MesaLink is a memory-safe and OpenSSL-compatible TLS library. Since 2014, the industry has seen a huge impact and loss due to memory vulnerabilities in TLS stacks; such as the infamous "Heartbleed" bug. MesaLink is born with the goal of eradicating memory vulnerabilities in TLS stacks; and it is written in Rust, a programming language that guarantees memory safety. This significantly reduces the attack surfaces; which further facilitates auditing and restricting the remaining attack surfaces. MesaLink is cross-platform and provides OpenSSL-compatible APIs. It works seamlessly in desktop, mobile, and IoT devices. With the growth of the ecosystem, MesaLink would also be adopted in the server environment in the future. To get better functionality along with strong security guarantees, MesaLink follows the following rules-of-thumb for hybrid memory-safe architecture designing proposed by the Rust SGX SDK project.

Botan - Crypto library for C++

  •    C++

Botan (Japanese for peony) is a cryptography library written in C++11. Botan's goal is to be the best option for cryptography in new C++ code by offering the tools necessary to implement a range of practical systems, such as TLS/DTLS, PKIX certificate handling, PKCS#11 and TPM hardware support, password hashing, and post quantum crypto schemes. In addition to the C++, botan has a C89 API specifically designed to be easy to call from other languages. A Python binding using ctypes is included, and several other language bindings are available.

featherduster - An automated, modular cryptanalysis tool; i.e., a Weapon of Math Destruction

  •    Python

FeatherDuster is a tool written by Daniel "unicornfurnace" Crowley of NCC Group for breaking crypto which tries to make the process of identifying and exploiting weak cryptosystems as easy as possible. Cryptanalib is the moving parts behind FeatherDuster, and can be used independently of FeatherDuster. Why "FeatherDuster"? There's an in-joke amongst some crypto folk where using crypto poorly, or to solve a problem that crypto isn't meant to solve is called "sprinkling magical crypto fairy dust on it". FeatherDuster is for cleaning up magical crypto fairy dust.

OpenPGP.js - OpenPGP implementation for JavaScript

  •    Javascript

OpenPGP.js is a JavaScript implementation of the OpenPGP protocol. It aims to provide an Open Source OpenPGP library in JavaScript so it can be used on virtually every device. This does not require gpg on their machines in order to use the library. The idea is to implement all the needed OpenPGP functionality in a JavaScript library that can be reused in other projects that provide browser extensions or server applications. It should allow you to sign, encrypt, decrypt, and verify any kind of text - in particular e-mails - as well as managing keys.

capillary - Capillary is a library to simplify the sending of end-to-end encrypted push messages from Java-based application servers to Android clients

  •    Java

This is a library to simplify the sending of end-to-end (E2E) encrypted push messages from Java-based application servers to Android clients. Please check the instructions below and the demo for more details. To use push messaging services to send messages to connected devices, developers must send them through a third party messaging service, such as Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM). It’s simple to encrypt message contents between the developer and the messaging service using https. Major messaging services, including FCM, also encrypt messages between their servers and client devices.
