Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2013-03-20 05:55:15 UTC
Spec URL:
Fast AES cipher implementation with advanced mode of operations.

The modes of operations available are ECB (Electronic code book), CBC (Cipher block chaining), CTR (Counter), XTS (XEX with ciphertext stealing), GCM (Galois Counter Mode).

The AES implementation uses AES-NI when available (on x86 and x86-64 architecture), but fallback gracefully to a software C implementation.

The software implementation uses S-Boxes, which might suffer for cache timing issues. However do notes that most other known software implementations, including very popular one (openssl, gnutls) also uses same implementation. If it matters for your case, you should make sure you have AES-NI available, or you'll need to use a different implementation.

Closing out old Haskell Package Reviews that use deprecated macros
like %ghc_devel_package, etc, which are no longer available in F20 Rawhide.  Please update your package using cabal-rpm-0.8.x or later and re-open
or file a new Review Request.  Thanks!

Comment 2 Sébastien Willmann 2014-03-16 13:55:17 UTC
ghc-crypto-cipher-types is available now.

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2015-01-09 03:18:34 UTC
Latest version is 0.2.9.

Comment 4 James Hogarth 2015-12-04 01:55:07 UTC
Michel are you intending to do anything with this?

It has been a long time since any comments.

As per policy if there is no response within a week this will be closed so that other interested parties may open a fresh review.

Comment 5 James Hogarth 2015-12-11 16:19:03 UTC
It's been over a week with no response from the requestor to the NeedsInfo flag.

Closing as per policy.
