Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.11nb2, Package name: ocaml-cryptokit-1.11nb2, Maintainer: jaapb

The Cryptokit library for Objective Caml provides a variety of
cryptographic primitives that can be used to implement cryptographic
protocols in security-sensitive applications. The primitives provided
include:

Symmetric-key cryptography: AES, DES, Triple-DES, ARCfour, in ECB,
CBC, CFB and OFB modes. Public-key cryptography: RSA encryption and
signature; Diffie-Hellman key agreement. Hash functions and MACs:
SHA-1, MD5, and MACs based on AES and DES. Random number generation.
Encodings and compression: base 64, hexadecimal, Zlib compression.

Additional ciphers and hashes can easily be used in conjunction
with the library. In particular, basic mechanisms such as chaining
modes, output buffering, and padding are provided by generic classes
that can easily be composed with user-provided ciphers. More
generally, the library promotes a "Lego"-like style of constructing
and composing transformations over character streams.

Log message:
Updated package to latest version, 1.11 (plus distribution change). Changes
include:

Release 1.11:
- Adapt to "safe string" mode (OCaml 4.02 and later required).
  The API should remain backward-compatible for clients compiled
  in "unsafe string" mode.
- Update SHA-3 to the official NIST standard (different padding than
  in the Keccak submission).  (Closes: #1528)
- Fixed bounds checking in "add_substring" methods of hash functions
  and other functions that operate on a substring of a string.
  (Closes: #1480)
- Use hardware implementation of AES when available on x86 processors.
  (Faster than the software implementation and less sensitive to
   side channel attacks.)
- Use the Zarith library to implement RSA.
  (Faster than the previous implementation and less sensitive to
   side channel attacks.)
- Support the hardware random number generator present in recent
  x86 processors.
- Rebuilt generated files with Oasis 0.4.6 for OCaml 4.03 compatibility.

Log message:
Updated package to newest version, 1.10. Changes include:
- Add all SHA-2 hash functions: SHA-224, SHA-384 and SHA-512
  in addition to the existing SHA-256.  (Closes: #1223)
- Add support for CTR (Counter) chaining mode.
- Fix compilation error with OCaml 4.03+dev.
- Avoid using some obsolete OCaml stdlib functions.
