Botan is a crypto library for C++ released under the permissive 2-clause 
BSD license. It provides most any cryptographic algorithm you might be 
looking for, along with Transport Layer Security (TLS), X.509 certs, 
CRLs, and path validation, a pipeline-style message processing system, 
bcrypt password hashing, and other useful things.

This is an update to the latest upstream release, which includes a fix 
for CVE-2016-2194, CVE-2016-2195, and CVE-2016-2196:


NOTE: this fix resulted in an ABI break.  Any software which users have 
built themselves with libbotan will need to be rebuilt.  The now-obsolete 
libbotan1.10_0 package may then be removed.
