I’m working on a small project and trying to find the best-suited encryption library for my purposes. Searching blindly yields too many results for me. Here’s what I’m looking for:

  • Cross-platform. WIN/OSX/Android/iOS
  • Straightforward AES encryption. I’m not looking for a myriad of encryption standards
  • Able to encrypt files and decrypt to memory without using temporary files
  • Small, easy to work with and understand
  • The language does not matter as long as the library achieves cross-compatibility.

To provide context, my project is a simple exercise in cross-platform development.

  • Create and store encrypted text files through a program using the library
  • Access said text files on a different platform using another program
  • The two programs will be native applications, but share the encryption library to simplify compatibility
