Nettle is a cryptographic library that is designed to fit easily in more or
less any context: In crypto toolkits for object-oriented languages (C++,
Python, Pike, ...), in applications like LSH or GNUPG, or even in kernel
It tries to solve a problem of providing a common set of cryptographic
algorithms for higher-level applications by implementing a
context-independent set of cryptographic algorithms. In that light, Nettle
doesn't do any memory allocation or I/O, it simply provides the
cryptographic algorithms for the application to use in any environment and
in any way it needs.
This package contains the asymmetric cryptographic algorithms, which,
require the GNU multiple precision arithmetic library (libgmp) for
their large integer computations.

2019-01-26 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.4.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Final upstream release (identical to RC1).
2018-12-04 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.4.1~rc1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (Closes: #915276).
2017-12-12 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.4-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release (Closes: #884013).
* multiarch_dev.patch: no longer replace definition of GMP_NUMB_BITS;
upstream changed it to "n/a" when mini-gmp isn't used.
* debian/rules: Switch to dh_update_autotools_config.
* Rename -> so that the NEWS and README
files will be included again.
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.2.
2017-09-10 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.3-2) unstable; urgency=low
* multiarch_dev.patch: Replace definition of GMP_NUMB_BITS calculated by
configure with the same calculation to be done at compile time (only
used if this package would be rebuilt with --enable-mini-gmp).  Thus
declare nettle-dev Multi-Arch: same (Closes: #856160).
* Upgrade to Debhelper compat level 9.
* Drop old style -dbg package and switch to automatically created
-dbgsym packages. Since the old package was built with Debhelper level
8 there are actually no file conflicts.
* Declare nettle-bin Multi-Arch: foreign.
* Bump Standards-Version to 4.1.0.
2016-10-02 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.3-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstream release.
* Includes fix for CVE-2016-6489 - "RSA code is vulnerable to cache
sharing related attacks" (Closes: #832983).
* Include --raw option in nettle-hash(1) manpage (Closes: #808648).
* Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.8.
2016-02-06 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.2-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Includes fixes for CVE-2015-8803, CVE-2015-8804, and CVE-2015-8805
(Closes: #813679).
2015-08-03 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.1.1-4) unstable; urgency=low
* multiarch_dev.patch (new): Remove compiler version info causing
nettle-dev for different architectures to be incompatible with each
other from nettle-stdint.h (Closes: #783699).
* Rearrange debian/copyright to comply with the machine-readable format
2015-06-01 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.1.1-3) unstable; urgency=low
* Switch libgmp10-dev Build-Depends to libgmp-dev (Closes: #783085).
2015-05-15 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.1.1-2) experimental; urgency=low
* Tag some more (ECC related) symbols that only exist on some
architectures (implemented in assembly).
2015-05-14 - Magnus Holmgren <>
nettle (3.1.1-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream bugfix release.
