pymonocypher

This python package uses cython to wrap the Monocypher C library. Monocypher is an easy to use, easy to deploy, auditable crypto library written in portable C.

Normal Python installations have access to a wide selection of quality crypto libraries. This python binding is intended to communicate with other implementations that do use the Monocypher library. A typical application is to communicate with a microcontroller that uses Monocypher.

The Python binding API mirrors the underlying C API, but with simplifications to only pass bytes objects, not uint8_t * and length.

Installation

You can install directly from pypi:

pip install pymonocypher

You can then use pymonocypher:

python
>>> import monocypher
>>> monocypher.blake2b(b'hello world')
You can’t perform that action at this time.
