SUBJECT:  RC4 Source Code

I've tested this.  It is compatible with the RC4 object module
that comes in the various RSA toolkits.  

/* rc4.h */
typedef struct rc4_key
     unsigned char state[256];       
     unsigned char x;        
     unsigned char y;
} rc4_key;
void prepare_key(unsigned char *key_data_ptr,int key_data_len,
rc4_key *key);
void rc4(unsigned char *buffer_ptr,int buffer_len,rc4_key * key);

/*rc4.c */
#include "rc4.h"
static void swap_byte(unsigned char *a, unsigned char *b);
void prepare_key(unsigned char *key_data_ptr, int key_data_len,
rc4_key *key)
     unsigned char swapByte;
     unsigned char index1;
     unsigned char index2;
     unsigned char* state;
     short counter;     
     state = &key->state[0];         
     for(counter = 0; counter < 256; counter++)              
     state[counter] = counter;               
     key->x = 0;     
     key->y = 0;     
     index1 = 0;     
     index2 = 0;             
     for(counter = 0; counter < 256; counter++)      
          index2 = (key_data_ptr[index1] + state[counter] +
index2) % 256;                
          swap_byte(&state[counter], &state[index2]);            

          index1 = (index1 + 1) % key_data_len;

          x = (x + 1) % 256;                      
          y = (state[x] + y) % 256;               
          swap_byte(&state[x], &state[y]);                        
          xorIndex = state[x] + (state[y]) % 256;                 
          buffer_ptr[counter] ^= state[xorIndex];         
      key->x = x;     
      key->y = y;

			        About USENET

USENET (Users’ Network) was a bulletin board shared among many computer
systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and
the ARPANET. Sites on USENET included many universities, private companies
and research organizations. See USENET Archives.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO v IBM.
