Google Unveils Open Source Security Tool

Google has just introduced a new open source cryptography utility called KeyCzar.

The toolkit provides “encryption and authentication for both symmetric and public-key algorithms,” explains Google’s Steve Weis. KeyCzar offers the ability to rotate keys without having to change the code itself — something Weis hopes can eliminate common problems in cryptography.

The software is now available at Google Code. More information is already posted in the new KeyCzar discussion group.
