Python OTR

This is a pure Python OTR implementation; it does not bind to libotr.

Install the potr Python module:

sudo python install

Dependencies: pycrypto >= 2.1 (see dlitz/pycrypto)

This software is experimental and potentially insecure. Do not rely on it

Usage Notes

This module uses pycrypto's RNG. If you use this package in your application and your application uses os.fork(), make sure to call Crypto.Random.atfork() in both the parent and the child process.
