cryptographic algorithms and protocols for Python

A collection of cryptographic algorithms and protocols, implemented for use from Python. Among the contents of the package:

* Hash functions: MD2, MD4. * Block encryption algorithms: AES, ARC2, Blowfish, CAST, DES, Triple-DES. * Stream encryption algorithms: ARC4, simple XOR. * Public-key algorithms: RSA, DSA, ElGamal, qNEW. * Protocols: All-or-nothing transforms, chaffing/winnowing. * Miscellaneous: RFC1751 module for converting 128-key keys into a set of English words, primality testing.

This is an empty dummy package that always depends on a package built for Debian's default Python version.

Package version:2.0+dp1-2


Python Cryptography Toolkit (pycrypto) 2.0	

This is a collection of both secure hash functions (such as MD5 and
SHA), and various encryption algorithms (AES, DES, IDEA, RSA, ElGamal,
etc.).  The package is structured to make adding new modules easy.  I
consider this section to be essentially complete, and the software
interface will almost certainly not 


pycrypto for Debian

The debian pythonX.Y-crypto packages contain the Python cryptographic
toolkit compiled for Python X.Y. I have removed the following
algorithms from the upstream source code due to patent/copyright

  * IDEA - patent issues
  * RC5 - patent issues
  * RIPEMD  - unclarified copyright

	* Added SHA256 module contributed by Jeethu Rao, with test data

* Add more tests for random pool code?

* Manual and Web page: point to SF project for bug reports
