I am trying to use org-crypt but cannot find where exactly is this package hosted.

I have:

(require 'package)
    (add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" .   "http://melpa.milkbox.net/packages/") t)
    (add-to-list 'package-archives '("org" . "http://orgmode.org/elpa/") t))

And then trying to use use-package:

(use-package org-crypt
:ensure t
(setq org-tags-exclude-from-inheritance (quote ("crypt")))
(setq org-crypt-key nil)

But this results in package 'org-crypt-' unavailable. I cant find it in the package list too when I check with list-packages.

org-crypt.el seems to be included within org-mode itself.

you can simply using it like:

(use-package org
  (require 'org-crypt)
