Library for digital signing and verification of digital signatures in mail, PDF and XML documents.

Project description

Python library for digital signing and verification of digital signatures in mail,
PDF and XML documents.

The ASN.1 implementation depends on `asn1crypto`_.
Cryptographic routines depend on `oscrypto`_ and `cryptography`_ libraries, so everything is
'pure python'.

For certificate verification OpenSSL is used but I would not trust it,
next version should switch to `cryptography`_.

This library implements S/MIME handler which can encrypt and decrypt S/MIME messages
using a public RSA key, in AES-128/192/256 CBC/OFB modes.
It can also sign and verify S/MIME messages.

This library implements CAdES-B handler for signing and verifying PDF documents in
Adobe.PPKLite/adbe.pkcs7.detached form.
It can sign documents during generation using a modified version of `pyfpdf`_ which is
included in this library. It can also sign documents generated by external programms.

This library implements XADES-BES handler for creating signed xml files.

This library implements CMS handler for signing and verifying plain text files with
detached signature files.
