Thank you Werner.

OK I'll check it out. Searching on the mailing list responses I
came across with Libgcrypt again, but I've read that it is quite
low-level library so you have  to be some kind of guru to use it. :-)
I'm far from a security expert, that's why I needed a more
higher level solution for this. But definitely I'll give it a shot.

Do you know if OpenSSL is suitable for this task?
