How do I use a public key cryptosystem or signature scheme?
How do I encrypt a message using a *private* key? (example of using signature with recovery)
How can I use an RSA key from Crypto++ in openssl?
The sample code shows how to work with a file, but my data is in a string (or vice versa).
Why is ElGamal key generation so slow?
I'm trying to process multiple messages with a Filter, and MaxRetrievable() always returns 0 after the first one.
Compiling, linking, and testing issues
What are the supported compilers and platforms?
I am getting compiler errors with GCC.
I get an "error opening file" message when I run cryptest.exe.
Why can't I read Crypto++ objects from files via FileStore with STLport streams?
I compiled cryptest.exe successfully, but am getting linker errors with my own application.
I'm getting internal compiler errors on Windows 98.
How can I contribute to this FAQ?
