Crypto

Collects together existing Haskell cryptographic functions into a package

Latest on Hackage:4.2.5.1

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.

\title{Haskell Cryptographic Library 4.2.0}
\author{Dominic Steinitz}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

The
\htmladdnormallinkfoot
{Haskell Cryptographic Library 4.2.0}
{http://www.haskell.org/crypto}
collects together existing Haskell cryptographic
functions into one cabalized package, together with HUnit tests,
QuickCheck property tests and examples. It is a significant
change from previous versions and now only contains cryptographic
functions; the functions for dealing with ASN.1, X.509 certificates
and PKCS\#8 will be provided by an entirely separate library reducing
the number of dependencies.

This release contains:
\begin{itemize}
\item DES
\item Blowfish
\item AES
\item TEA
\item Cipher Block Chaining (CBC)
\item PKCS\#5 and nulls padding
\item SHA-1
\item MD5
\item RSA
\end{itemize}

Haddock documentation for the library is available
\htmladdnormallinkfoot
{here}
{http://www.haskell.org/crypto/doc/html}
.

\section{System Requirements}

\begin{itemize}
\item
The code has been tested on GHC 6.6 and Hugs Version September 2006.
It does not currently work with YHC because of the lack of {\tt Data.Word}
and {\tt Data.Bits}.
\item
It {\em no longer} requires the use of
{\tt NewBinary.Binary}.
\end{itemize}

\section{Installation Instructions}

Get the sources:

\lstset{language=shell,basicstyle=\ttfamily\small}
\begin{lstlisting}[frame=single]
darcs get --tag "4.2.0" http://code.haskell.org/crypto
\end{lstlisting}

Build and install ready for testing:

\begin{lstlisting}[frame=single]
ghc -o Setup Setup.hs -package Cabal
./Setup configure --prefix=/my/chosen/dir
./Setup build
./Setup install --user
\end{lstlisting}

Run the tests.

\begin{lstlisting}[frame=single]
cd /my/chosen/dir/bin
./RSATest
./SymmetricTest
./QuickTest
\end{lstlisting}

You can now run the examples to confirm further that everything
is working satisfactorily.
When you are happy, build and install them in
their final destination:

\begin{lstlisting}[frame=single]
./Setup unregister --user
./Setup clean
./Setup configure
./Setup build
./Setup install
\end{lstlisting}

\section{To Do}

In no particular order:

\begin{itemize}
\item
Incorporate other symmetric key algorithms already coded in Haskell.
\item
Performance analysis as Blowfish ought to run more quickly than DES.
\item
Other modes / padding schemes.
\item
Extend typechecking to ensure that only the appropriate key sizes are used
for a given algorithm.
\item
Improve performance, for example, for SHA1. This
\htmladdnormallinkfoot
{code}
{http://www.abridgegame.org/repos/darcs-unstable}
runs an order of magnitude faster but, with respect to the authors, doesn't
feel that functional.
\item
Get rid of the GPL code.
\end{itemize}

Cryptography is a notoriously easy area in which to make mistakes,
not necessarily with the algorithms but with how they are implemented
(for example not protecting keys, using weak keys and so on).
