Super easy asymmetric encryption for python

Project description

Super easy asymmetric encryption for python


python-asymcrypt is a wrapper around pycryptodome to make it even more easier for asymmetric encryption.


With pip

pip install asymcrypt


Generate keys files

import asymcrypt


Encrypt data

data = 'A string, not an unicode'
encrypted_data = asymcrypt.encrypt_data(data,'my_public_key_file.pem')

Decrypt data

data = asymcrypt.decrypt_data(encrypted_data,'my_private_key_file.pem')


As an option, you can use passphrase option in each functions to generate encrypted keys and read them when using encrypt/decrypt_data() functions

Command line

Asymcrypt provides 3 commands :

To generate keys pair

asymgenkeys -priv private_key.pem -pub public_key.pem

To encrypt

asymencrypt -k public_key.pem -in file_to_encrypt.txt -out dest_file.enc

To decrypt

asymdecrypt -k private_key.pem -in encrypted_file.enc -out dest_file.txt

Note : you may use option -b or --base64 to encode/decode in base64 and -p or --passphrase to specify a passphrase en encrypt/decrypt keys
