The "gpg" Python module is, for the most part, a direct interface to
the C GPGME library.  However, it is re-packaged in a more Pythonic
way -- object-oriented with classes and modules.  Take a look at the
classes defined here -- they correspond directly to certain object
types in GPGME for C.
* Feature-rich, full implementation of the GPGME library. Supports
all GPGME features except interactive editing (coming soon).
Callback functions may be written in pure Python.
* Ability to sign, encrypt, decrypt, and verify data.
* Ability to list keys, export and import keys, and manage the keyring.
* Fully object-oriented with convenient classes and modules.
This is the official upstream Python 2 binding for GPGME.
