i have been given a task to implement Brute force attack on DES algorithms using
Parallel cluster system, for which i need a simple des encrypter and decrypter code.
I have seen the des.h and des.cpp in Crypto++ but it is of no use because i am not very much familiar with header files and classes.

Can someone please help me how to do it using would be so nice of you.Bundle of thanks in advance.

PS:i know des is obsolete.The objective of my project is get familiar with parallel cluster system.

If you're not familiar with classes and header files you're going to have fun implementing anything in C++. If I were you I'd wrap my head around includes and abstract data types and then use libcrypto which is part of the OpenSSL[^] distribution. It's a C library rather than a C++ one but it's got some very efficient implementations of most of the common cyphers in it.

It might also be a good idea to use a programming language you're comfortable with. C and C++ can be very unforgiving for self taught neophytes.
