PyElliptic is a Python module that provides high level access to the
OpenSSL library, featuring elliptic curve cryptography (ECC), symmetric
cryptography and more.
The full list of functions is below:
Key agreement : ECDH
Digital signatures : ECDSA
Hybrid encryption : ECIES (like RSA)
Blowfish (CFB and CBC)
HMAC (using SHA512)
PBKDF2 (SHA256 and SHA512)
This package provides the Python 2 version.
