Subject: [Caml-list] Cryptokit: cryptographic library for OCaml
My amateur, unfocused interest for applications of cryptography led me
to implement the Cryptokit library of cryptographic primitives for
OCaml, providing:

  - Symmetric-key cryptography: AES, DES, Triple-DES, ARCfour.
  - Public-key cryptography: RSA.
  - Hash functions and MACs: SHA-1, MD5, and MACs based on AES and DES.
  - Random number generation.
  - Encodings and compression: base 64, hexadecimal, Zlib compression.

It is available at

>From a language standpoint, while the low-level crypto code in this
library is uninteresting (it's the same snippets of C that you'll find
everywhere), I'm relatively proud of the Caml high-level interface,
which makes tasteful use of objects (if I may say so myself).
