Detailed Description

Classes for Poly1305 message authentication code.

Poly1305-AES is a state-of-the-art message-authentication code suitable for a wide variety of applications. Poly1305-AES computes a 16-byte authenticator of a variable-length message, using a 16-byte AES key, a 16-byte additional key, and a 16-byte nonce.

Crypto++ also supplies the IETF's version of Poly1305. It is a slightly different algorithm than Bernstein's version.
