Project description

eGenix pyOpenSSL Distribution for Python

The pyOpenSSL Distribution includes everything you need to get started with OpenSSL in Python, based on the fine pyOpenSSL package that is available from Launchpad at

It comes with an easy to use installer that includes the most recent OpenSSL library versions in pre-compiled form and also ships with the most recent certificate authority (CA) bundles from Mozilla, together with a support module to make using the bundles easy in pyOpenSSL.

You can also compile pyOpenSSL yourself. For Windows, we include all necessary OpenSSL build files to make this easy for you. On other platforms, you just need to install the OpenSSL library (including the development headers) to compile from source.

Web Installer

The source package on the Python Package Index (PyPI) is a web installer, which will automatically select and download the right binary package for your installation platform.

This source package does not include the crypto code, so it’s safe to download and distribute. Before downloading the crypto code archives, the web installer will ask for confirmation of the export regulations that apply to the code.
