Python library exposing cryptographic recipes and primitives (Python 2)

Description

The cryptography library is designed to be a "one-stop-shop" for all your cryptographic needs in Python.

As an alternative to the libraries that came before it, cryptography tries to address some of the issues with those libraries:
 - Lack of PyPy and Python 3 support.
 - Lack of maintenance.
 - Use of poor implementations of algorithms (i.e. ones with known
   side-channel attacks).
 - Lack of high level, "Cryptography for humans", APIs.
 - Absence of algorithms such as AES-GCM.
 - Poor introspectability, and thus poor testability.
 - Extremely error prone APIs, and bad defaults.

This package contains the Python 2 version of cryptography.
