AES Block Cipher
AES-dust is a compact Implementation of the AES block cipher with support for 128 and 256-bit keys. The modes of encryption supported are Counter (CTR) and Electronic Code Book (ECB).
All code is intentionally optimized for size rather than speed making it suitable for resource constrained environments.
All files with .s and .asm extensions are compatible with the GNU assembler (GAS) except for the files in the MSVC folder that will assemble with either NASM or YASM.

Side channel attacks
AES was never intended to be resistant against side channel attacks. However, if you decide to use this code for an embedded project that requires a high level of security, first evaluate whether the code is sufficient against such attacks before including in your project.
Initially this was published with a BSD license. I decided to unlicense hoping more people would use and provide useful feedback.
