Encrypt strings using Vigenere Cipher
The Vigenere cipher is a method of encrypting alphabetic text by using a series of interwoven Caesar ciphers, based on the letters of a keyword. It employs a form of polyalphabetic substitution.
This library uses python3 which can be download from here. After installing python, use pip to install the package.
$ pip install vigenere
No external dependencies required in this version.
Open the python shell and begin encrypting and decrypting texts with only 4 lines of commands.
>>> from vigenere import encrypt, decrypt, random_key >>> cipher_key:str = random_key() # one can even use user-defined key such as `qwerty` >>> cipher = encrypt('hello world', cipher_key) # with random_key function, cipher may vary everytime you run a program. >>> decrypt(cipher, cipher_key) 'hello world'

In the 19th century the scheme was misattributed to Blaise de Vigenere (1523-1596), and so acquired its present name.
