Description : high level PKCS#11 interface for Python
A high level, "more Pythonic" interface to the PKCS#11 (Cryptoki) standard to
support HSM and Smartcard devices in Python.
The interface is designed to follow the logical structure of a HSM, with
useful defaults for obscurely documented parameters. Many APIs will optionally
accept iterables and act as generators, allowing you to stream large data
blocks for symmetric encryption.
It also includes numerous utility functions to convert between PKCS#11 data
structures and common interchange formats including PKCS#1 and X.509.
The library is fully documented and has a full integration test suite for all
features, with continuous integration against multiple HSM platforms including
Entrust nShield, Opencryptoki TPM and OpenSC/Smartcard-HSM/Nitrokey HSM.
New optional dependency for esptool, a package that I am trying to help
with. I intend to maintain this package as part of the Debian Python
Team. Co-maintainers/Uploaders more than welcome.
