Sodium is a new, easy-to-use software library for encryption, decryption, signatures, password hashing and more.
It is a portable, cross-compilable, installable, packageable fork of NaCl, with a compatible API, and an extended API to improve usability even further.
Its goal is to provide all of the core operations needed to build higher-level cryptographic tools.
Sodium supports a variety of compilers and operating systems, including Windows (with MingW or Visual Studio, x86 and x64), iOS and Android.
The documentation is a work-in-progress, and is being written using Gitbook:
- offline documentation in PDF, MOBI and ePUB formats.
The integrity checking instructions (including the signing key for libsodium) are available in the installation section of the documentation.
A mailing-list is available to discuss libsodium.
