Authors/Port authors:

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 space.

This software is distributed in two modes:
  • as compressed package that you have to download and manually install; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too;
  • as RPM package; you can install it using your favorite rpm package manager, that will take care to download and install both the software and its prerequisites.
Choose the installation mode that you prefer. Please note that not all the versions are available in both the installation modes.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.

nettle-3.5.1-1.oc00 (24/03/2020)
NEWS for the Nettle 3.5.1 release The Nettle-3.5.1 corrects a packaging mistake in Nettle-3.5. The new directory x86_64/sha_ni were missing in the tar file, breaking x86_64 builds with --enable-fat, and producing worse performance than promised for builds with --enable-x86-sha-ni. Also a few unused in-progress assembly files were accidentally included in the tar file. These problems are corrected in Nettle-3.5.1. There are no other changes, and also the library version numbers are unchanged.
