python-pgpdump: a Python library for parsing PGP packets

This is based on the C version published at: http://www.mew.org/~kazu/proj/pgpdump/

The intent here is not on completeness, as we don't currently decode every packet type, but on being able to do what people actually have to 95% of the time. Currently supported things include:

  • Signature packets
  • Public key packets
  • ASCII-armor decoding and CRC check

A single codebase with dependencies on only the standard python library is compatible across Python 2.7, Python 3.2, and PyPy 1.8.
