The Apache Commons team is pleased to announce the establishment of a new component: Apache Commons Crypto.
Apache Commons Crypto is a cryptographic library optimized with AES-NI (Advanced Encryption Standard New Instructions). It provides Java API for both cipher level and Java stream level. Developers can use it to implement high performance AES encryption/decryption with the minimum code and effort. Please note that Apache Commons Crypto doesn’t implement the cryptographic algorithm such as AES directly. It wraps to Openssl or JCE which implement the algorithms.
The Apache Commons team is currently working on the initial release, which is expected soon. We invite everybody interested to join the development on Apache Commons Crypto.

The source code is available in the Apache Commons Crypto git repository:
