libtmcg 1.3.18 C++ library for creating secure and fair online card games

The library provides a sort of useful classes, algorithms, and high-level protocols to support an application programmer in writing such software. The most remarkable feature is the absence of a trusted third party (TTP), i.e. neither a central game server nor trusted hardware components are necessary.

The corresponding cryptographic problem, actually called Mental Poker, has been studied since 1979 (Shamir, Rivest, and Adleman) by many authors. LibTMCG provides the first practical implementation of such protocols.
