Crypto From Scratch: Intro

This will be a first of many posts on creating Crypto Primitives from Scratch.

The code will have:

  • Tested against production implementations
  • Commented to give information about more complex instructions
  • Have common name variables and function names to give a better view of data flow
  • Be done in python since it is easy to read.

Crypto From Scratch Series

For a list of all of these implementations look at my where I will be posting finished versions of common Encryption, Decryption, Hashing, Key Generation and Key Enchanges. Also this page will be update with new Algorithums.
