Camellia-cipher in Python
This is a cryptographic library implementing the camellia cipher in python.
>>> import camellia >>> plain = b"This is a text. " >>> c1 = camellia.CamelliaCipher(key=b'16 byte long key', IV=b'16 byte iv. abcd', mode=camellia.MODE_CBC) >>> encrypted = c1.encrypt(plain) >>> c2 = camellia.CamelliaCipher(key=b'16 byte long key', IV=b'16 byte iv. abcd', mode=camellia.MODE_CBC) >>> c2.decrypt(encrypted) b'This is a text. '
Because it’s build direct on top of the reference implementation, the python-camellia library provides direct access to extreme low-level functions like Camellia-Ekeygen but also provides a nearly PEP-272-compliant cryptographic interface. This semi low-level interface supports encryption (and decryption) in ECB, CBC, CFB, OFB and CTR modes of operation.
Install with pip:
$ pip install python-camellia

- Version 1.0:
- The “normal” camellia version is used instead of the mini or reference version.
- Camellia is now loaded using CFFI. This improves speed and avoids shipped DLLs. It’s better than the self-made-on-first-use compilation, which
- Supports all standart modes of operation (ECB, CBC, CFB, OFB, CTR)
- Electronic code book mode of operation is not implicit default anymore.
- Now camellia.Camellia_Ekeygen returns a list instead of an CFFI array.
