NAME
       libgcrypt  -  libgcrypt	is a general purpose cryptographic library based on the code from
       GnuPG.

DESCRIPTION
       libgcrypt is a general purpose cryptographic library based on the code from GnuPG. It pro-
       vides  functions  for all cryptograhic building blocks: symmetric ciphers (AES, DES, Blow-
       fish, Twofish, Arcfour), hash algorithms (MD4, MD5, RIPE-MD160,	SHA-1,	TIGER-192),  MACs
       (HMAC  for  all hash algorithms), public key algorithms (RSA, ElGamal, DSA), large integer
       functions, random numbers and a lot of supporting functions.
