# where are ssh.com's crypticore and seed defined?

ssh.com's Tectia offers a few algorithms seemingly unique to itself. Chief among them: crypticore128@ssh.com, crypticore-mac@ssh.com and seed-cbc@ssh.com

Are these algorithms publicly defined anywhere or are the proprietary algorithms?

• @Maeher - weird. Doesn't work for me either. But that is, none-the-less, the link I get if I go to Products -> Tectia SSH Client/Server on ssh.com. Maybe it's doing some funky redirects if you visit that URL without having ssh.com as the referer. That'd be retarded but it's pretty retarded that you can't visit that link directly either...

• SEED was a Korean standard also available as an RFC, although AIUI officially it has been superseded by ARIA. AFAICT crypticore is proprietary. Feb 21 '20 at 1:12
• @Maeher Fixed link by guessing index.html. Note that it may be because of cookie settings / browser's blocking thingies. Feb 25 '20 at 12:22
• I don't see any mention of an algorithm of that name, but I do see an HCC HSM with the same name (using bog-standard algorithms), which of course supports SSH. So maybe they mean that. ssh.com seems to be governed by a bunch of management style overlords (for uh, lack of a better word), but I think you're still better off asking them. Feb 25 '20 at 12:46
