Module documentation for 0.1.0
This is the source repository for the “nettle” cabal package, which is a safe binding to the nettle library.
The binding supports all hash functions, cipher functions, cipher modes and keyed hash functions included in nettle (additionally the AEAD-CCM cipher mode is implemented in pure haskell).
Not included are the PBKDF2 key derivation functions, the public-key algorithms (RSA, DSA, elliptic curves, ECDSA), the pseudo-random generators (lagged Fibonacci and Yarrow), and the base64/base16 encoding/decoding functions.
Also not included are the undocumented ASN1, PGP, PKCS1 and “s-expression” functions.
The haddock generated documentation is available at http://stbuehler.github.io/haskell-nettle/
The test vectors were extracted from the nettle library and ported to haskell; they come from different sources.
