py-secobj 0.2.0

A simple object encryptor and decryptor

# py-secobj #

## ABOUT ##
A simple python library that will handle synchronous encryption (AES) of
a python object to either a string or dumping it right to a file.

The only non-standard library required is the PyCrypto library, which
is usually available in your package manager.  If not, get it from

Install is easy with the standard Python package install

tar -xvzf py-secobj-X.X.X.tar.gz
cd py-secobj-*
python install

You can also install via *pip* or *easy_install*

pip install py-secobj

## USAGE ##
You can use this library to encrypt any "pickleable" object.  It will only
encrypt one object so if you wanted to encrypt multiple, put them in a
container like a list or dict.

A couple of quick examples:

import secobj

passphrase = 'spam and eggs'
fname = '/var/tmp/test.enc'
myObj = [1 , 2 , 3]
enc = secobj.EncObject(passphrase)

# Encrypt to file and decrypt
enc.encryptToFile(myObj , fname)
unencryptedObject = enc.decryptFromFile(fname , True)

# Encrypt to string.  You will need to hold on to your IV here
encStr , IV = enc.encryptToStr(myObj)
unencryptedObject  = enc.decryptFromStr(encStr , IV)
