Introduction to Nettle
The Nettle package contains the
low-level cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in
This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.3

Installation of Nettle
Install Nettle by running the
./configure --prefix=/usr &&
To test the results, issue: make
Now, as the
make install &&
chmod -v 755 /usr/lib/libhogweed.so.2.4 /usr/lib/libnettle.so.4.6 &&
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/nettle-2.7 &&
install -v -m644 nettle.html /usr/share/doc/nettle-2.7
pkcs1-conv and sexp-conv
calulates a hash value using a specified algorithm.
outputs a sequence of pseudorandom (non-cryptographic)
bytes, using Knuth's lagged fibonacci generator. The
stream is useful for testing, but should not be used to
generate cryptographic keys or anything else that needs
converts private and public RSA keys from PKCS #1 format
to sexp format.
converts an s-expression to a different encoding.
