The Kowalski project aims to provide a data driven, lightweight cross platform audio solution. The target audience is developers of games and similar applications where real time audio plays an important role. The Kowalski engine, which is the runtime component, relies only on host-specific external libraries to pass the final output buffers to the audio hardware. All other processing is done in the engine code. Features include positional audio (distance attenuation, cone attenuation, Doppler shift, binaural panning), real time Ogg Vorbis decoding, a powerful mix bus system, and tools to build, validate, and view Kowalski data.
SQLCipher provides fully transparent encryption of SQLite databases. SQLCipher is a specialized build of the SQLite database that performs transparent and on-the-fly encryption. Using SQLCipher, an application uses the standard SQLite API to manipulate tables using SQL. Behind the scenes, the library silently manages security, making sure that data pages are encrypted and decrypted as they are written to and read from storage. SQLCipher relies on the peer-reviewed OpenSSL library for several encryption requirements, including the AES-256 algorithm, pseudo random number generation, and PBKDF2 key derivation.
