I call "openssl" executable from Racket for most crypto algorithms.

"openssl" is used widely, it's fast, and I can keep the native code in 
separate host processes (for security/reliability, and for removing some 
load from a Racket host process).

I'm sure the protocols could be implemented in pure Racket code, and 
using Racket's new-ish numerical optimizations features, but then I'd 
have to audit.
