Well, you'll need to provide some context what exactly you want to do.
CryptTools.hxx just wraps common encryption tools provided by either
OpenSSL or NSS. Key generation (from a password for example) is then
the complicated part that differs from an algorithm to the other.
Simplest you could do is take a password, calculate the hash and use
that for the key, but that wouldn't be secure at all.
