RC2 - rs_rc2 - Rivest Cipher 2

Important Note: This crate is still a work in progress and is not ready for consumption.

RC2 is a symmetric key block cipher designed by Ronald Rivest in 1987. Despite being considered old, it’s still used in:

  • Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME), a standard for public key encryption and signing of MIME data.
  • Transport Layer Security (TLS), and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), cryptographic protocols designed to provide communications security.

This crate implements RC2 as part of the RustyShield project.
