I don't suppose you're planning to tie these recommendations up into an open source C99 library with an NaCl-like crypto_box interface? Oh, and can I have a pony too? :)



Better, add AES and SHA-256 support to NaCl. With your insight into preventing side channel attacks, it would be a great combo.


I could be wrong, but I don't think NaCl is portable anywhere but x86 or x86_64. ARM needs good crypto too. Though I suppose we could ask for ARM support in NaCl too since we're asking for ponies :)

Also, does NaCl support signing? I think crypto_box offers "authentication" which is a slightly different promise.


No signatures yet. See this summary I wrote a while back for more info.
