NAME

       crypto - The Crypto Application

DESCRIPTION

       The  purpose  of  the  Crypto  application  is  to  provide an Erlang API to cryptographic
       functions, see crypto(3erl). Note that the API is on a fairly low level and there are some
       corresponding  API functions available in public_key(3erl), on a higher abstraction level,
       that uses the crypto application in its implementation.

DEPENDENCIES

       The current crypto implementation uses nifs  to  interface  OpenSSLs  crypto  library  and
       requires OpenSSL package version 0.9.8 or higher.

       Source releases of OpenSSL can be downloaded from the OpenSSL project home page, or mirror
       sites listed there.
