  1. Description
    -----------

    The python mcrypt module provides a comprehensive interface for the
    mcrypt library, which provides a uniform interface to several
    symmetric encryption algorithms. It is intended to have a simple
    interface to access encryption algorithms in ofb, cbc, cfb, ecb and
    stream modes. Supported algorithms are DES, 3DES, RIJNDAEL (128, 192,
    256), Twofish, IDEA, GOST, CAST, ARCFOUR, SERPENT, SAFER+, and more.

    Features
    --------

    The python-mcrypt module provides the following features:

    o Free software (GNU Lesser General Public License).
    o Support for Python newstyle classes, allowing subclassing.
    o Comprehensive unitttests.
    o Support for many well known and less known algorithms and modes. (*)
    o Support for fixlength algorithm, adjusting encrypted data length
    even for block algorithms and modes.
    o Support for direct file encryption.
    o Complete inline documentation.
    o Check parameters before passing to mcrypt library, protecting
    agains segmentation faults.
