The lib does the following:

- browser id verification (like pyvep)
- token creation, given a shared secret etc
Summary: wrap PyVep → create a C++ crypto lib

The BrowserId verification is done in two different steps. The first thing is the Json Web Token verification, in C++ as well. I've started something here: http://github.com/ametaireau/jwtcpp

Are you planning to build the library from the ground up or extend something such as openssl / NSS ?

I'm building something on top of Crypto++ mainly because of the possible speedups when using specific specific hardware (not reinventing any crypto here).
