A small, easy-to-use, thread-safe C library originally developed
for Gringotts; its purpose is to encapsulate data (generic: ASCII
but also binary data) in an encrypted and compressed file. It
uses strong encryption algorithms, to ensure the data is as safe as
possible, and allows the user to have the complete control over all
the algorithms used in the process.
For encryptions, libgringotts makes use of the MCrypt and MHash
C libraries by Nikos Mavroyanopoulos.
This package contains the headers files needed for software development
using the libgringotts data encapsulation library.
