It is not recommended except +in cases of backwards-compatibility with legacy systems. + +This is a low-level module which implements cryptographic primitives. Direct use +of cryptographic primitives is not recommended for non-experts, as incorrect use +of these primitives can easily lead to the introduction of security +vulnerabilities. Non-experts are advised to use the high-level operations +available in the top-level [[crypto]] module. + +Be advised that Hare's cryptography implementations have not been audited.
