Developing Crypto Code in Python

I am currently doing a research on how to develop crypto code in Python programming language.

Based on my research, there are several crypto libraries that’s suitable for my purpose. They are Python Cryptography Toolkit and ezPyCrypto as my main libraries.

Python Cryptography Toolkit will be the low-level crypto library, while ezPyCrypto will act as a high-level crypto library.

Before installing those two libraries, make sure you have have the following packages :

  • python
  • python-devel

Here are the steps to install those libraries :

– Install Python Cryptography Toolkit (python-crypto) :

# rpm -Uvh python-crypto-2.0.1-15.i586.rpm
Preparing… ########################################### [100%]
1:python-crypto ########################################### [100%]

– Install ezPyCrypto :

$ tar xvzpf ezPyCrypto-0.1.1.tar.gz

$ cd ezPyCrypto-0.1.1/

$ su -c “python setup.py install”
Password:

running install

running build

running build_py

creating build

creating build/lib

copying ezPyCrypto.py -> build/lib

running install_lib

creating /usr/local/lib/python2.4

creating /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages

copying build/lib/ezPyCrypto.py -> /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages

byte-compiling /usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ezPyCrypto.py to ezPyCrypto.pyc
