Re: GSoC 2018 - Modern cryptographic algorithms to netpgp, netpgpverify

Hi Alistair, 

It's great to hear from you. And okay, I will follow those instructions.
Regarding the project, we need to implement  ed25519 and salsa20 in the 'netpgpverify' package right, like there are already implementations for sha1, sha2, md5 etc. hashing schemes, we need to add the implementation of these two signature schemes and cipher to the package?
I guess the file would be here:

And yes, I can work with C and I understand it's workflow.
So, how should I begin with writing a proposal and get started with the implementation?

Hi Harsh,

I've been talking to others about it, but yours is the first mail I've received.

C proficiency is necessary. C++ not needed.

I can help you out with any specific questions you have - please mail them here (i.e. to tech-crypto, CC me).

Hi Alistair,

Sorry for contacting you soo late for the above-mentioned project. Could you provide me with help regarding the project so that I can work on it for GSoC? Also, do you have anyone else preparing for it or can I continue with this?

My knowledge of C and C++ languages is intermediate.
