Subject: ANNOUNCE: Cryptol now freely available
Date: Thursday 25th December 2008 00:02:18 UTC (over 8 years ago)
Galois is pleased to announce that Cryptol, the language of cryptography, is now available to the public! Cryptol is a domain specific language for the design, implementation and verification of cryptographic algorithms, developed over the past decade by Galois for the United States National Security Agency. It has been used successfully in a number of projects, and is also in use at Rockwell Collins, Inc. Cryptol is implemented in Haskell. Domain-specific languages (DSLs) allow subject-matter experts to design solutions in using familiar concepts and constructs. Cryptol, as a DSL, allows domain experts in cryptography to design and implement cryptographic algorithms with a high degree of assurance in the correctness of their design, and at the same time, producing a high performance implementation of their algorithms. In this release, Galois has made a implementation of the Cryptol language available free of charge for non-commercial uses.
