Easily encrypted OpenPGP compatible files with python
Write OpenPGP compatible-encrypted files like it ain’t no thang. Symmetric ciphers only.
Use it by itself:
from encryptedfile.EncryptedFile import EncryptedFile f = EncryptedFile("hello.gpg", passphrase=getpass.getpass(), encryption_algo=EncryptedFile.ALGO_AES256) f.write("super secret message") f.close()
Or with something passed through it:
from encryptedfile.EncryptedFile import EncryptedFile import PIL img = ... # obtain image somehow f = EncryptedFile("pic.png.gpg", passphrase=getpass.getpass(), encryption_algo=EncryptedFile.ALGO_BLOWFISH) img.save(f, "png")
Or use it in a PEP-343 block:
from encryptedfile import EncryptedFile with EncryptedFile("txt.gpg", passphrase=getpass.getpass()) as f: ... use f ...
Let’s say we’re using gpg:
Supply the right passphrase, and tada!
Do you support reading?
No, reading would mean supporting the bajillion ways that OpenPGP files have been created throughout history. That would be a pain. I may at some point in time support reading well enough to be able to read whatever written by this module.
change import encryptedfile.EncryptedFile.EncryptedFile to import encryptedfile.EncryptedFile, probably when we bump the major version number
