Safe, idiomatic Rust bindings to the Sodium cryptographic library.

Sodium is a fast, modern cryptographic library written in C. This crate intends to provide a higher-level API for making use of the constructs Sodium provides. These constructs include simple-to-use symmetric and asymmetric authenticated encryption, signatures, hashing, password derivation, and key exchange: In short, the majority of operations required for many modern cryptographic protocols.

The intention for this library is to be a replacement for sodiumoxide, which is now deprecated. Lots of design decisions here were inspired by this library, so thanks to all of its contributors!

Usage/Documentation

Comprehensive documentation for this library is available on docs.rs. The intention is for the entire library to be well documented, with illustrative examples and information on security concerns.
