    Hi

    I need some encryption done in my Python 2.5 application. I wonder
    what's the most recommended library? I've found M2crypto and some
    OpenSSL wrappers and Python Cryptography Toolkit and some others. No
    surprise I'm confused :)

    What's the most often used library for crypto?

    For now I need a simple AES, no asymmetric crypto or GPG involved.

    Thanks!

    I use pycrypto without any simplification wrappers (e.g. ezPyCrypto) and
    it seems straightforward to me. You might try the simplification
    wrappers though.
