-- |HsOpenSSL is an OpenSSL binding for Haskell. It can generate RSA
-- and DSA keys, read and write PEM files, generate message digests,
-- sign and verify messages, encrypt and decrypt messages.
-- Please note that this project has started at the time when there
-- were no pure-Haskell implementations of TLS. Now there is tls
-- package (<>), which looks
-- pretty saner than HsOpenSSL especially for initialisation and error
-- handlings. So PHO (the initial author of HsOpenSSL) wants to
-- encourage you to use and improve the tls package instead as long as
-- possible. The only problem is that the tls package has not received
-- as much review as OpenSSL from cryptography specialists yet, thus
-- we can't assume it's secure enough.
-- Features that aren't (yet) supported:
-- [/SSL network connection/] ssl(3) functionalities aren't fully
-- covered yet. See "OpenSSL.Session".
-- [/Complete coverage of Low-level API to symmetric ciphers/] Only
-- high-level APIs (EVP and BIO) are fully available. But I believe
-- no one will be lost without functions like @DES_set_odd_parity@.
-- [/Low-level API to asymmetric ciphers/] Only a high-level API
-- (EVP) is available. But I believe no one will complain about the
-- absence of functions like @RSA_public_encrypt@.
-- [/Key generation of Diffie-Hellman algorithm/] Only RSA and DSA
-- keys can currently be generated.
-- [/X.509 v3 extension handling/] It should be supported in the
-- future.
-- [/Low-level API to message digest functions/] Just use EVP
-- instead of something like @MD5_Update@.
-- [/API to PKCS#12 functionality/] It should be covered someday.
-- [/BIO/] BIO isn't needed because we are Haskell hackers. Though
-- HsOpenSSL itself uses BIO internally.
-- [/ENGINE cryptographic module/] The default implementations work
-- very well, don't they?
