Project description

Pure Python RSA implementation

PyPI Build Status Coverage Status Code Climate

Python-RSA is a pure-Python RSA implementation. It supports encryption and decryption, signing and verifying signatures, and key generation according to PKCS#1 version 1.5. It can be used as a Python library as well as on the commandline. The code was mostly written by Sybren A. Stüvel.

Documentation can be found at the Python-RSA homepage. For all changes, check the changelog.

Download and install using:

pip install rsa

or download it from the Python Package Index.

Security

Because of how Python internally stores numbers, it is very hard (if not impossible) to make a pure-Python program secure against timing attacks. This library is no exception, so use it with care. See https://securitypitfalls.wordpress.com/2018/08/03/constant-time-compare-in-python/ for more info.
