Crypto provides two libraries for easy encryption and decryption of data. It uses NaCl secret-key (symmetric encryption).
Padsecret pads (if needed) the user key with a user-provided pad. It is less secure but very fast.
Saltsecret creates the encryption key anew for every message by using scrypt and the user key. It is more secure but slow.

go run test -bench .) to
