      • recrypt – proxy re-encryption / transform cryptography library in scala (audited, not constant time)
      • recrypt-wasm-binding – build recrypt-rs for use in browsers
      • recrypt-node-binding – build recrypt-rs for use in node
    • High-level crypto libraries (these use recrypt)

Code of conduct

It should go without saying, but a community is a place for respectful interactions and the IronCore Labs community is a place where people are meant to debate ideas, architect solutions, and help each other. This is not a place for shaming people (for example, for poor security practices or lack of knowledge or understanding) or any other behavior that would make people feel unwelcome. The unwritten rules of the physical world apply, but if you aren’t sure what that means. we have a standard code of conduct policy that applies to all parts of our community.
