Development libraries and headers for use in building applications that use libmcrypt.
Package version:2.5.7


Mcrypt 2.1 was insecure (vulnerable to brute force attack for weak keys) 
because it just used the plainkey as it was given by the user as algorithm's
key. The solution seems to be a function which tranforms the
key given by the user to a real -random looking- key. 

There are many functions that may convert a password or a passphrase to
a key. Most of them use hash algorithms. You can find some i


The xTEA algorithm may not be right implemented. There are two different
behaved implementations, because the specification is not clear. I assumed
that the C code in the specification is right, so in mcrypt xtea behaves
exactly as the code shown in the specification. The different approach
is the code in which seems to be more rational than the
code in the specification. But since
