Generally the two most suggested free products are Crypto++
(http://www.eskimo.com/~weidai/cryptlib.html) and OpenSSL
(http://www.openssl.org/). I have used both and both are very good toolsets,
each has small advantages, but mostly it's just a programming style

As a personal preference, I generally preper OpenSSL for most purposes,
because the interface feels better to me, but lately I've been using
Crypto++ more because it supports a wider selection of algorithms (including
the very important for me ECC variants) which is recently of extreme value
to me.

I will say that if either of these was pay-ware, I would gladly pay for it.
