<h1>Nettle - a low-level cryptographic library</h1>

<blockquote>
  Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in more
  or less any context: In crypto toolkits for object-oriented languages
  (C++, Python, Pike, ...), in applications like LSH or GNUPG, or even in
  kernel space.

<h2> CVS access </h2>

As some shared but crucial files are not stored in the Nettle corner
of the CVS repository, the recommended way of CVS access is to check
out the entire LSH tree, as per the instructions at the <a
href="http://www.lysator.liu.se/~nisse/lsh">LSH home page</a>, run the
top-level <tt>./.bootstrap</tt> script (which sets up a few important
symlinks and runs .bootstrap scripts in subdirectories), and then
descend into the <tt>src/nettle</tt> directory for a standard
<tt>./configure && make</tt> there.
