An ultra-lightweight library to securely encrypt any file with AES.

Project description

aespy is an ultra-lightweight, pure-python library for doing AES encryption. It draws heavily on the popular crypto library, simplifying AES encryption and decryption of files to a single function each.

Usage

Simple usage follows this pattern:

import aespy
encrypt_me = "my_transcript.pdf"
output_file = easy-aes.encrypt_file(encrypt_me)

output_file is a string with the new file name.

WARNING: IF YOU FORGET YOUR PASSWORD AND DELETE THE ORIGINAL DATA, YOUR FILE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE RETRIEVED!

import aespy
encrypted_file = "my_encrypted_filename.aes"
binary_data = easy-aes.decrypt_file(encrypted_file)
with open('my_new_file.aaa','wb') as new_file:
  new_file.write(decrypted_data)

decrypt_file returns a Python object containing the now-decrypted data.

Installation

aespy works Python 3.3+. To install it, use:

$ pip install aespy
