Simple cryptographic library for hashing and encrypting
Cryptographic library with really simple API.
Includes functions for hashes, symmetric and asymmetric crypto, along with helper functions. Acts as a wrapper for PyCrypto and a few standard libraries.
Documentation is available at http://simplecrypto.readthedocs.org.
The full source code repository is at https://github.com/boppreh/simplecrypto.
pip install simplecrypto
This library depends on PyCrypto. On Linux this is installed automatically by pip. If the dependency installation fail on Windows, you may want to use a prebuilt installer. If you wish to compile it I suggest using the Mingw tools as indicated here.
