RustCrypto: Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data (AEAD) Algorithms

Dependency Status Project Chat

Collection of Authenticated Encryption with Associated Data (AEAD) algorithms written in pure Rust.

AEADs are high-level symmetric encryption primitives which defend against a wide range of potential attacks (i.e. IND-CCA3).


Crates functionality is expressed in terms of traits defined in the aead crate.
