/**
 * @defgroup Algos Cryptographic Algorithms
 *
 *
 * This library provides several different cryptographic algorithms,
 * each of which can be selected by using the cipher_type_id_t and
 * auth_type_id_t.  These algorithms are documented below.
 *
 * Authentication functions that use the Universal Security Transform
 * (UST) must be used in conjunction with a cipher other than the null
 * cipher.  These functions require a per-message pseudorandom input
 * that is generated by the cipher.
 * 
 * The identifiers STRONGHOLD_AUTH and STRONGHOLD_CIPHER identify the
 * strongest available authentication function and cipher,
 * respectively.  They are resolved at compile time to the strongest
 * available algorithm.  The stronghold algorithms can serve as did
 * the keep of a medieval fortification; they provide the strongest
 * defense (or the last refuge).
