This module is a collection of commonly needed number-related functions, including numerous standard statistical, geometric, and probability functions. Some of these functions are taken directly from _Mastering Algorithms with Perl_, by Jon Orwant, J...SIFUKURT/Math-NumberCruncher-5.00 - 05 Mar 2002 19:04:04 GMT - Search in distribution

The One Time Pad encryption method is very simple, and impossible to crack without the actual pad file against which the to-be-encrypted message is XOR'ed. Encryption and decryption are performed using excactly the same method, and the message will d...SIFUKURT/Crypt-OTP-2.00 - 04 Sep 2002 18:53:12 GMT - Search in distribution
A simple implementation of the RC4 algorithm, developed by RSA Security, Inc. Here is the description from RSA's website: RC4 is a stream cipher designed by Rivest for RSA Data Security (now RSA Security). It is a variable key-size stream cipher with...SIFUKURT/Crypt-RC4-2.02 - 13 Dec 2001 21:45:11 GMT - Search in distribution
RC5 is a fast block cipher designed by Ronald Rivest for RSA Data Security (now RSA Security) in 1994. It is a parameterized algorithm with a variable block size, a variable key size, and a variable number of rounds. This particular implementation is...SIFUKURT/Crypt-RC5-2.00 - 05 Nov 2002 16:01:18 GMT - Search in distribution
Solitaire is a top-notch pencil-and-paper encryption system developed by Bruce Schneier. Here is the description in Schneier's own words: "In Neal Stephenson's novel Cryptonomicon, the character Enoch Root describes a cryptosystem code-named "Pontife...SIFUKURT/Crypt-Solitaire-2.0 - 29 Nov 2001 18:08:56 GMT - Search in distribution
GOST is a 64-bit symmectric block cipher with a 256-bit key, from the former Soviet Union. It is important to note that there are (or have been) several other GOST encryption modules for perl. This version is in no way intended to supersede any other...SIFUKURT/Crypt-GOST_PP-1.10 - 26 Feb 2002 17:03:27 GMT - Search in distribution
To be honest, I did this mostly for the comedy value. I was toying with the idea of making a real steganography module, and the next thing I knew, I was writing Playwright instead. It does offer a degree of security (albeit not a terribly high degree...SIFUKURT/Acme-Playwright-0.02 - 01 May 2002 17:01:06 GMT - Search in distribution
