Monocypher is an easy to use crypto library. It is:

Getting started

Download the latest Monocypher, and run the test suite:

$ tar -xzf monocypher-2.0.5.tar.gz
$ cd monocypher-2.0.5
$ make test

Optionally, you can generate and install binaries on your system:

$ make
$ sudo make install

Or you can just integrate Monocypher source files into your project:

$ cp src/monocypher.c path/to/your/source/folder
$ cp src/monocypher.h path/to/your/include/folder

Monocypher's API is documented in the user manual. If you are not yet familiar with cryptography, please follow an introductory course. We currently recommend Crypto101.
