PyCryptodome

PyCryptodome is a self-contained Python package of low-level cryptographic primitives.

It supports Python 2.4 or newer, all Python 3 versions and PyPy.

PyCryptodome is a fork of PyCrypto. It brings the following enhancements with respect to the last official version of PyCrypto (2.6.1):

  • Authenticated encryption modes (GCM, CCM, EAX, SIV, OCB)
  • Accelerated AES on Intel platforms via AES-NI
  • First class support for PyPy
  • SHA-3 and BLAKE2 hash algorithms
  • Salsa20 and ChaCha20 stream ciphers
  • scrypt and HKDF
  • Deterministic DSA
  • Password-protected PKCS#8 key containers
  • Shamir’s Secret Sharing scheme
  • Random numbers get sourced directly from the OS (and not from a CSPRNG in userspace)
  • Simplified install process, including better support for Windows
  • Cleaner RSA and DSA key generation (largely based on FIPS 186-4)
  • Major clean ups and simplification of the code base
