Description: CBraid is a C++ class library that implements algorithms for computations in braid groups. Recently some braid cryptosystems, which are based on non-commutative structures, have been introduced and become a matter of interest for the cryptography research community. There still remain lots of things to be studied on braid cryptosystems, and many of them needs to be aided by a computer. In this regard, the main aim of CBraid library is to offer a basic tool that is useful in braid cryptography research. The library has been updated to run on modern compilers, and has been merged with Braiding version v1.0 (2004/10/04) originally written by Juan Gonzalez-Meneses and distributed under the GPL. The code is maintained by Jean-Luc Thiffeault.
