  Description     : Perl module implementing the RSA public-key cryptosystem

 Crypt::RSA is a pure-perl, cleanroom implementation of the RSA
 public-key cryptosystem. It uses Math::Pari(3), a perl interface to the
 blazingly fast PARI library, for big integer arithmetic and number
 theoretic computations.
 .
 Crypt::RSA provides arbitrary size key-pair generation, plaintext-aware
 encryption (OAEP) and digital signatures with appendix (PSS). For
 compatibility with SSLv3, RSAREF2, PGP and other applications that
 follow the PKCS #1 v1.5 standard, it also provides PKCS #1 v1.5
 encryption and signatures.
 .
 Crypt::RSA is structured as bundle of modules that encapsulate different
 parts of the RSA cryptosystem. The RSA algorithm is implemented in
 Crypt::RSA::Primitives(3). Encryption schemes, located under
 Crypt::RSA::ES, and signature schemes, located under Crypt::RSA::SS, use
 the RSA algorithm to build encryption/signature schemes that employ
 secure padding. (See the note on Security of Padding Schemes.)
 .
 The key generation engine and other functions that work on both
 components of the key-pair are encapsulated in Crypt::RSA::Key(3).
 Crypt::RSA::Key::Public(3) & Crypt::RSA::Key::Private(3) provide
 mechanisms for storage & retrival of keys from disk, decoding & encoding
 of keys in certain formats, and secure representation of keys in memory.
 Finally, the Crypt::RSA module provides a convenient, DWIM wrapper
 around the rest of the modules in the bundle.

Hi Salvatore--

How is packaging progressing on Crypt::RSA for debian?

My impression is that Crypt::RSA's dependency on Math::PARI is a real
sticking point, as Math::PARI doesn't seem to be to be easy to package
(indeed, the maintainer has made a point of demanding that you compile
perl on the local machine in order to be able to get support, which
rules out binary distributions like debian).

Have you had any luck with http://bugs.debian.org/532839 ?

Yep, that is exactly the point. I cannot yet package Crypt:RSA :(. We
also removed libmath-pari-perl 'recently' (ok, already back in august)
from pkg-perl svn repository due the problems with Math::PARI:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
r42756 | gregoa | 2009-08-25 19:54:14 +0200 (Tue, 25 Aug 2009) | 1 line

Removing libmath-pari-perl from repository.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

So in fact thus there is for Crypt:RSA no progress on packaging, due
to the issues which appeared.

This is just a note to indicate that i've asked the upstream developer
for Crypt::RSA to consider dropping requirements for Math::Pari in favor
of Math::BigInt:

Many thanks for your effort. I was a bit busy the last day, so was not
yet able to reply to your mail. Many thanks for forwarding this.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of libcrypt-rsa-perl back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting libcrypt-rsa-perl, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 532839 ITP: libcrypt-rsa-perl -- Perl module implementing the RSA public-key cryptosystem
 owner 532839 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <532839@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
