--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-1815

Name        : ocaml-cryptokit
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 1.3
Release     : 2.fc8
URL         : http://pauillac.inria.fr/~xleroy/software.html
Summary     : OCaml library of cryptographic and hash functions
Description :
The Cryptokit library for Objective Caml provides a variety of
cryptographic primitives that can be used to implement cryptographic
protocols in security-sensitive applications. The primitives provided
include:

* Symmetric-key cryptography: AES, DES, Triple-DES, ARCfour, in ECB,
  CBC, CFB and OFB modes.
* Public-key cryptography: RSA encryption and signature; Diffie-Hellman
  key agreement.
* Hash functions and MACs: SHA-1, SHA-256, RIPEMD-160, MD5, and MACs
  based on AES and DES.
* Random number generation.
* Encodings and compression: base 64, hexadecimal, Zlib compression.

Additional ciphers and hashes can easily be used in conjunction with
the library. In particular, basic mechanisms such as chaining modes,
output buffering, and padding are provided by generic classes that can
easily be composed with user-provided ciphers. More generally, the
library promotes a "Lego"-like style of constructing and composing
transformations over character streams.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update ocaml-cryptokit' at the command line.
