I would like to use blowfish as i have used it in the past and its as good as any, speed is a concern so i opted for c based and seemingly mature python encryption module called pycrypto (there was one i was looking at called py-bcrypt but it is very old and doesn't seem to install anymore) however the documentation for pycrypto is lacking in stuff that i need to get started, specifically with blowfish.
Also I will most likely be getting the file to decrypt out of a compressed folder so i need to be able to give the decrypt-er an actual file object not a file name, is this possible?
Also if you know of or use a better encryption module for python please share, i am not married to the idea of using blowfish i just want some thing that works and is simple.
EDIT: after looking for awhile, most of what i can find deals with encrypting/decrypting/hashing strings and passwords etc but not entire files...
OFF-TOPIC (kinda): why is it that the library of python encryption modules seems so thin and lacking good, easy to use, and well maintained modules?
