Pure Python RSA implementation

PyPI Build Status Coverage Status Code Climate

Python-RSA is a pure-Python RSA implementation. It supports encryption and decryption, signing and verifying signatures, and key generation according to PKCS#1 version 1.5. It can be used as a Python library as well as on the commandline. The code was mostly written by Sybren A. Stüvel.

Documentation can be found at the Python-RSA homepage.

Download and install using:

Plans for the future

Version 3.4 is the last version in the 3.x range. Version 4.0 will drop the following modules, as they are insecure:

  • rsa._version133
  • rsa._version200
  • rsa.bigfile
  • rsa.varblock

Those modules are marked as deprecated in version 3.4.

Furthermore, in 4.0 the I/O functions will be streamlined to always work with bytes on all supported versions of Python.

Version 4.0 will drop support for Python 2.6, and possibly for Python 3.3.
