Version     : 2.6.7
Release     : 3.fc9

Summary     : Replacement for crypt()
Description :
MCrypt is a replacement for the old crypt() package and crypt(1) command,
with extensions. It allows developers to use a wide range of encryption
functions, without making drastic changes to their code. It allows users
to encrypt files or data streams without having to be cryptographers.

Update Information:

Switch from openpgp mechanism as default back to mcrypt internal due to massive
performance problems and size restrictions.
