Description Jim Geovedi 2002-10-07 22:00:11 UTC
Blowfish is a published algorithm written by Bruce Schneier Unlike
IDEA or DES etc. there are no patent implications in using this

It uses anywhere between a 64 bit and a 448 bit key. The transform
itself is fast and operates on a 64 bit block, and most of the
calculation time is in initialising the context with the key data.

The _PP name comes from the fact that this implementation is Pure
Perl, and will not have any compatibility problems.
