NAME
       crypto - The Crypto Application

DESCRIPTION
       The  purpose of the Crypto application is to provide message digest and DES encryption for
       SMNPv3. It provides computation of message digests MD5 and SHA, and CBC-DES encryption and
       decryption.

CONFIGURATION
       The following environment configuration parameters are defined for the Crypto application.
       Refer to application(3erl) for more information about configuration parameters.

	 debug = true | false <optional> :
	   Causes debug information to be written to standard error or standard  output.  Default
	   is false .

OPENSSL LIBRARIES
       The  current implementation of the Erlang Crypto application is based on the OpenSSL pack-
       age version 0.9.7 or higher. There are source and binary releases on the web.

       Source releases of OpenSSL can be downloaded from the OpenSSL project home page, or mirror
       sites listed there.

       The  same  URL also contains links to some compiled binaries and libraries of OpenSSL (see
       the Related/Binaries menu) of which the Shining Light Productions Win32 and OpenSSL  pages
       are of interest for the Win32 user.

       For some Unix flavours there are binary packages available on the net.

       If  you cannot find a suitable binary OpenSSL package, you have to fetch an OpenSSL source
       release and compile it.

       You then have to compile and install the  library  libcrypto.so	(Unix),  or  the  library
       libeay32.dll (Win32).

       For  Unix  The  crypto_drv  dynamic  driver  is	delivered  linked to OpenSSL libraries in
       /usr/local/lib , but the default dynamic linking will also accept libraries  in	/lib  and
       /usr/lib .

       If  that is not applicable to the particular Unix operating system used, the example Make-
       file in the Crypto priv/obj directory, should be used as a basis for relinking  the  final
       version of the port program.

       For  Win32  it  is  only  required that the library can be found from the PATH environment
       variable, or that they reside in the appropriate SYSTEM32 directory; hence  no  particular
       relinking is need. Hence no example Makefile for Win32 is provided.
