mcrypt

Replacement for old unix crypt(1)

mcrypt is a crypting program, intended to be replacement for the old unix crypt(1). But it can do a lot more, since with its libmcrypt library it can encrypt and decrypt with the following alogirhtms: BLOWFISH, TWOFISH, DES, TripleDES, 3-WAY, SAFER-sk64, SAFER-sk128, SAFER+, OKI97, GOST, RC2, RC6, MARS, IDEA, RIJNDAEL-128, RIJNDAEL-192, SERPENT, RIJNDAEL-256, CAST-128 (known as CAST5), CAST-256, ARCFOUR, ENIGMA, PANAMA, XTEA and WAKE. Please note that this package is buggy and unmaintained by the upstream authors. If you can, please look for other implementations (openssl, gnutls, gnupg).

Install the latest version of mcrypt in Debian, Ubuntu, Kali, Fedora, Raspbian and macOS from terminal. To install the mcrypt just copy the above command for your OS and run into terminal. After you run the command it will grab the latest version of mcrypt from the respository and install it in your computer/server.
