Description
The Crypto-C Micro Edition (ME) Module is RSA, The Security Division of EMC's cryptographic library designed for securing mobile devices like wireless phones and personal digital assistants. It contains assembly-level optimizations on key wireless processors. Its functionality includes a wide range of data encryption and signing algorithms, including Triple-DES, the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm, the RSA Public Key Cryptosystem, the DSA government signature algorithm, MD5 and SHA1 message digest routines, and more.
