Reference C code
The reference C code, written by Ted Krovetz (with
John Black pitching in).
The code is intended to clarify the algorithm;
it is not as fast as possible.
It will be changed without notice, even the names of files and the
contents of the header file.
For the time being, we have one file
which implements both OCB and PMAC.
The AES code that we have used is
public-domain code from
by Rijmen, Bosselaers, and Barreto.

Fast x86 Assembly code
I suggest purchasing this from
Helger Lipmaa, who is quite a magician at
making fast assembly code for cryptographic algorithms.
We ourselves have not been able to produce anything
as fast Helger has.
Can't get your own code to give my test vectors?
My test vectors are correct; multiple, independent
implementations have given these same values.
If you're getting something else,
experience indicates that the
problem is, almost certainly, endian nonsense.
A note by Gladman
on AES bit-ordering conventions may help.
(But then again, nothing really helps to banish
