You have done quite some work on the crypto front...cool!
since you are the owner of cryptocipher and your new package cipher-aes:
is cryptocipher now deprecated?
the certificate library fits my needs perfectly!
so my current setup includes:
cipher-aes (AES), by Vincent Hanquez
certificate (for X509 certificates), by Vincent Hanquez
The RSA package (RSA public key crypto), by Adam Wick, depends on The
crypto-pubkey-types package by Vincent Hanquez
so let's just hope you stick around for some time Vince, my code now fully
depends on you ;)
