Libgcrypt is a cryptographic library developed as a separated module of GnuPG. It can also be used independently of GnuPG, but depends on its error-reporting library.
It provides functions for all cryptographic building blocks:
Libgcrypt features its own multiple precision arithmetic implementation, with assembler implementations for a variety of processors, including Alpha, AMD64, HP PA-RISC, i386, i586, M68K, MIPS 3, PowerPC, and SPARC. It also features an entropy gathering utility, coming in different versions for Unix-like and Windows machines.
