PyCryptodome is a self-contained Python package of low-level cryptographic
primitives. It supports Python 2.6 or newer, all Python 3 versions and PyPy.
PyCryptodome is a fork of PyCrypto.
PyCryptodome is not a wrapper to a separate C library like OpenSSL. To the
largest possible extent, algorithms are implemented in pure Python. Only the
pieces that are extremely critical to performance (e.g. block ciphers) are
implemented as C extensions.
