This is a DES implementation written by Antti Louko
(firstname.lastname@example.org). It is based on DES description found in D.E.R.
Denning's book Cryptography and Data Security. At this time you may
use this program for non-commercial use. If you modify the program,
you must add a comment in the modified file indicating who modified
it. For commercial purposes please contact me.
If you find bugs or otherwise modify this program, please send
changes back to me.
In any case, I would greatly appreciate if I would get credit
for development of this package and support to develop more
cryptographic software which can be used all over the world.

Why you shouldn't get it (Addendum of 2000-10-15)
This is quite outdated software package. If you need modern,
supported and royalty free crypto package, I warmly recommend
software found at http://www.openssl.org/. U.S National Institute of Standards and
Technology has announced the nation's proposed new Advanced
Encryption Standard. This finally makes DES officially outdated
as an algorithm. OpenSSL will probably have an AES implementation
but in the meantime other good algorithms in OpenSSL can be used.
