Crypto Speed Tests (for Python)

This package has one very simple goal:

Compare the speed of PyCrypto and cryptography cryptographic libraries for Python

In particular, the only currently implemented test is a comparison of RSA PKCS1_v1.5 signing and verification which can be ran by running

Installing Requirements

Easy as pie with pip: pip install -r requirements.txt

Running the Tests

Also, easy as pie... python


Library Version Exec n=20000
PyCrypto 2.6.1 68.3203s
cryptography 0.6.1 46.6717s

By the above numbers, cryptography is faster than PyCrypto by 31.6869%.

The above excecution was on a Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2675QM CPU @ 2.20GHz running Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic)
