+aespipe is a AES encrypting or decrypting pipe. It reads from
+standard input and writes to standard output. It can be used to
+create and restore encrypted tar or cpio archives, and to
+encrypt and decrypt loop-AES compatible encrypted disk images.
+
+To compile a static binary, pass STATIC=yes to the script.
+
+The script includes runtime support for VIA padlock hardware AES
+and Intel hardware AES. Check aespipe.README for other options.
