Crimson offers a superset of the cryptographic features available in the .NET framework. For various reasons Crimson isn't distributed within Mono. The main reasons being: * Target audience As a superset to both .NET and Mono cryptographic features, Crimson is useful to everyone, not just Mono users. * Support Crimson is not required inside Mono to reach feature parity with MS implementation of the .NET framework and it's related tools. As such supporting Crimson is not the goal of the Mono project. * Export restriction on cryptographic software Laws regarding export and, sometimes import, of cryptography are diverse and complex. It is difficult to add/remove algorithms and keep all the required paperwork in sync. Distribution as source-only makes this a lot easier.
