Project description


Simple encryption/decryption functions for Python


pip install cryptofy


Generate a secret:

from cryptofy import encoding, generate_secret

key = generate_secret().decode(encoding)

print(key)  # Output randomized secret

Encrypt a string:

from cryptofy import encoding, encrypt

string = "my-password"
key = "my-secret"

encrypted = encrypt(bytes(key, encoding=encoding), bytes(string, encoding))

print(encrypted)  # Output ciphertext

Decrypt ciphertext:

from cryptofy import encoding, decrypt

encrypted = "<ciphertext>"
key = "my-secret"

string = decrypt(bytes(key, encoding=encoding), encrypted).decode(encoding)

print(string)  # Output decrypted string

Command Line


cryptofy ((-d | -e) -k <key> -s <source>) | (-n [-l <length>])

Example 1: Generate a secret

cryptofy -n

Example 2: Encrypt a string:

cryptofy -e -k "my-secret" -s "my-password"

Example 3: Decrypt ciphertext:

cryptofy -d -k "my-secret" -s "<ciphertext>"
