NaCl (pronounced "salt") is a new easy-to-use high-speed software library for network communication, encryption, decryption, signatures, etc. NaCl's goal is to provide all of the core operations needed to build higher-level cryptographic tools. Of course, other libraries already exist for these core operations. NaCl advances the state of the art by improving security, by improving usability, and by improving speed.
Sodium is a portable, cross-compilable, installable, packageable fork of NaCl (based on the latest released upstream version nacl-20110221), with a compatible API.
This package aims to provide a type-safe and efficient Rust binding that's just as easy to use.
Documentation will be generated in target/doc/...
Most documentation is taken from NaCl, with minor modification where the API differs between the C and Rust versions.
Documentation for the latest build can be found at gh-pages.
Several optional features are available:
std(default: enabled). When this feature is disabled, sodiumoxide builds using
#![no_std]. Some functionality may be lost. Requires a nightly build of Rust.
serde(default: enabled). Allows serialization and deserialization of keys, authentication tags, etc. using the serde library.
benchmarks(default: disabled). Compile benchmark tests. Requires a nightly build of Rust.
