The Legion of the Bouncy Castle Java Cryptography API provides a lightweight cryptography API in Java, a provider for the JCE and JCA, a clean-room implementation of the JCE 1.2.1, generators for Version 1 and Version 3 X.509 certificates, generators for Version 2 X.509 attribute certificates, PKCS12 support, and APIs for dealing with S/MIME, CMS, OCSP, TSP, CMP, CRMF, EAC, DVCS, OpenPGP, DTLS, and TLS. Versions are provided for the J2ME, and JDK 1.0-1.7.
GnuTLS is a secure communications library implementing the SSL, TLS, and DTLS protocols and technologies around them. It provides a simple C language application programming interface (API) to access the secure communications protocols, as well as APIs to parse and write X.509, PKCS #12, OpenPGP, and other required structures. It is intended to be portable and efficient with a focus on security and interoperability.
yaSSL is a C++ based SSL library for embedded and RTOS environments, designed for individuals who prefer to use the C++ language. For a C-based solution, please see CyaSSL. yaSSL supports the industry standards up to TLS 1.2, and also includes an OpenSSL compatibility interface.
The CyaSSL embedded SSL library is a lightweight SSL library written in ANSI C and targeted for embedded and RTOS environments, primarily because of its small size, speed, and feature set. It is commonly used in standard operating environments and cloud services as well because of its royalty-free pricing and excellent cross platform support. CyaSSL supports industry standards up to the current TLS 1.2 and DTLS 1.2 levels, is up to 20 times smaller than OpenSSL, and offers progressive ciphers such as HC-128, RABBIT, and NTRU.
The RAZip bitstream format was designed to provide a faster random access to compressed data than what is currently possible using the GZIP format. Its major features include fast random access to compressed data, freedom from patents, single-pass coding/decoding using a bounded amount of intermediate storage, the ability to choose from one of many algorithms for compression, encryption, or error correction, and comprehensive support for Unix file metadata, Macintosh file metadata, and arbitrary file metadata.
pyOpenSSL is a Python wrapper for a subset of OpenSSL's functionality, featuring an advanced error management system, connection objects that wrap socket methods, and flexible context objects. Also included is a rudimentary crypto module that can be used to create and verify certificates (X509 objects).
JHBCI is JCA/JCE cryptographic service provider for Java. It is useful for building HBCI home banking applications (clients and servers). JHBCI implements all relevant "RDH" crypto algorithms for the German Homebanking Standard HBCI Version 2.2, such as DES, RSA, ISO9796-1:1991-Signature, and RIPEMD160-MessageDigest.
OpenXAdES enables people to work with legally-binding digital signatures (primarily giving and verifying them). Legislation often defines a set of requirements that legal digital signature technologies and infrastructures must be compliant with, and OpenXAdES aims at meeting many, if not all, such requirements from different legislations.
Better ASN is a Java ASN.1 API that focuses on speed and efficiency rather than extended functionality. This strategy prescribes one-pass decoding and near 100% encoding efficiency for typical ASN.1 usage patterns. Although BASN was developed for use by a Certificate Authority, the release comes packaged with an ASN.1 to Java compiler, which can be used to generate Java implementations of ASN.1 structures. This allows the API to be used for any Java application that may require ASN.1 decoding/manipulation/encoding.
