This is a lightweight, fast implementation of AES (the US government's Advanced Encryption Standard)
written in C for speed. You can read more on the {Wikipedia AES Page}[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard].
+The algorithm itself was extracted from the open source Netcat clone {sbd}[http://www.cycom.se/dl/sbd]
+(AES support by Christophe Devine).
-This library supports a subset of AES functionality, specifically 129, 192, and 256-bit ciphers only.
