The python mcrypt module provides a comprehensive interface for the
mcrypt library, which provides a uniform interface to several
symmetric encryption algorithms. It is intended to have a simple
interface to access encryption algorithms in ofb, cbc, cfb, ecb and
stream modes. Supported algorithms are DES, 3DES, RIJNDAEL (128, 192,
256), Twofish, IDEA, GOST, CAST, ARCFOUR, SERPENT, SAFER+, and more.
The python-mcrypt module provides the following features:
o Free software (GNU Lesser General Public License).
o Support for Python newstyle classes, allowing subclassing.
o Comprehensive unitttests.
o Support for many well known and less known algorithms and modes. (*)
o Support for fixlength algorithm, adjusting encrypted data length
even for block algorithms and modes.
o Support for direct file encryption.
o Complete inline documentation.
o Check parameters before passing to mcrypt library, protecting
agains segmentation faults.
