I want to do a programming based project on cryptography.I am zeroing in on the topic but I am not sure as to which programming language will be the best to use.I am well versed in C,C++,Java and a few others.Also sample project links will be helpful.
THANK YOU

The language is irrelevant; it is the implementation that is important.

Do you want to design your own crypto algorithm, implement an existing algorithm or use a crypto library?

I am just getting started with cryptography.I think I will implement an existing algorithm.This is my engineering final year project.
Thank You

Then I suggest you take a look at www.cryptool.de, it is an excellent educational tool for cryptography. It will help you understand the algorithm you want to implement, and it can help you produce test vectors. And it is open source.
