Not that hard, the easiest way would be to use Libgcrypt.

New applications should use AES (Rijndael). But be warned, it is not easy to just use 2 algorithms to create a secure systems. You have to think about many details of which each can badly affect the security. Eventually you will come up with a protocol like OpenPGP (which still has some flaws) - so you are better off to strip GnuPG down to what you need (and manage to keep up with bug fixes). -- Werner Koch Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur g10 Code GmbH et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est.
