RustCrypto: Counter Mode (CTR)

Crate Docs Apache2/MIT licensed Rust Version Project Chat Build Status HAZMAT

Generic implementations of the Counter Mode (CTR) of operation for block ciphers, which enables adapting block ciphers into stream ciphers.



⚠️ Security Warning: Hazmat!

This crate does not ensure ciphertexts are authentic (i.e. by using a MAC to verify ciphertext integrity), which can lead to serious vulnerabilities if used incorrectly!

No security audits of this crate have ever been performed, and it has not been thoroughly assessed to ensure its operation is constant-time on common CPU architectures.


Minimum Supported Rust Version

Rust 1.41 or higher.

Minimum supported Rust version can be changed in the future, but it will be done with a minor version bump.
