Google unofficially doing it’s part to improve cryptography.

A group of developers from Google’s Security Team have published a tool called Wycherproof to test common cryptography libraries against many of the known vulnerabilities and attacks that are plaguing the cryptography world.

Although the team is made up of people from the Google Security Team, it is not an official Google product.

Project Wycheproof tests crypto libraries against known attacks. It is developed and maintained by members of Google Security Team, but it is not an official Google product.

The project that was initially pushed to Github on November 30th has already found a whopping 40+ bugs in RSA, DSA, ECDH, and Diffie-Hellman.  The bugs can be found within their Github repo here.
