 Log Message:
 Import p5-Crypt-OpenSSL-AES-0.02 as security/p5-Crypt-OpenSSL-AES.
 Based on PR 39222 by Jens Rehsack.
 This module implements a wrapper around OpenSSL. Specifically, it wraps the
 methods related to the US Government's Advanced Encryption Standard (the
 Rijndael algorithm).
 This module is compatible with Crypt::CBC (and likely other modules that
 utilize a block cipher to make a stream cipher).
 This module is an alternative to the implementation provided by Crypt::Rijndael
 which implements AES itself. In contrast, this module is simply a wrapper
 around the OpenSSL library.
 The Crypt::Rijndael implementation seems to produce inaccurate results on
 64-bit x86 machines. By using OpenSSL, this module aims to avoid architecture
 specific problems, allowing the OpenSSL maintainers to overcome such issues.
