First Experiments with BouncyCastle CryptoLib

September 25, 2007

In these day I’m experimentig a promising library which implements many Crypto Algorithms, called BouncyCastle (which is for .NET, and I’m coding in C#).

Library, seems to be complete and to have good implementations of Common Algorithms, EllipticCurveCryptography, Certifications, OpenPGP, OpenSSL.

A part a little leak of performances in ECIES algorithm, seems to work great.

The big problem is that Hex Conversion functions have some problem, for example Hex.Decode() , fails when the string passed have an odd lenght.

To dayI’ve sent an email to the coders, hope in a fast reply, if i discover how to solve also other minor problems (actually no time to mention all) i’ll post here the fixed piece of code 😉

See you to the next post 🙂
