Description : Various helpers to pass trusted data to untrusted environments
itsdangerous provides a module that is a port of the django signing module.
It's not directly copied but some changes were applied to make it work
better on its own.
itsdangerous allows web applications to use a key only it knows to
cryptographically sign data and hand it over to someone else (e.g. a user).
When it gets the data back it can easily ensure that nobody tampered with it.
