Solaris 10 Encryption Supplement download

The Solaris 10 encryption supplement is available for download here. Apparently, it's difficult to find going through the Sun download sides so I give a link here.

The supplement adds 256 bit AES and 448 bit Blowfish; DES, 3DES, 128 bit AES, blowfish and RC4 are already in the standard release. In other words, the standard release gets you what you would have gotten with the encryption supplement for older releases. And the S10 Encryption Supplement takes it one step further. The main reason for not making this part of the Solaris CDs is import restrictions, rather than export restrictions.
Comments:

Thanks for announcing this. I had to open a service order a couple of weeks ago to get a copy. The only part I really need is the ecb_crypt() function. I'm using it for a secure RPC client and server, like this: + stat = ecb_crypt(argp->np_deskey, argp->np_oldnew, sizeof(argp->np_oldnew), (DES_DECRYPT|DES_SW)); Could this function be integrated with Solaris? In that case, I wouldn't need to install the supplement.

Nice! Now if one only could get the header files for Sun's Kerberos libraries so one could compile applications oneself that use those libraries...
