[freehaven-dev] crypto API
A while back we discussed a list of primitives and data types which needed
to go into a crypto API. Roger has a partial list in
/src/haven/crypto-api.c, but it's not complete.
So here is what I remember that we need.
Please correct me and fill in details :
DATA TYPES :
public key data type
private key data type
symmetric key data type
These data types may need to be written and read
from disk, and also inserted/retreived from a database.
symmetric_key_encrypt(symmetric key, message)
public_key_encrypt(public key, message)
sign(private key, message)
verify(public key, message)
These will be implemented as interfaces to some crypto library we like.
Current candidates are Wei Dai's crypto++ 3.1 (which is what we're using
for IDA) and OpenSSL.
