"""Secret-key encryption algorithms. Secret-key encryption algorithms transform plaintext in some way that is dependent on a key, producing ciphertext. This transformation can easily be reversed, if (and, hopefully, only if) one knows the key. The encryption modules here all support the interface described in PEP 272, "API for Block Encryption Algorithms". If you don't know which algorithm to choose, use AES because it's standard and has undergone a fair bit of examination. Crypto.Cipher.AES Advanced Encryption Standard Crypto.Cipher.ARC2 Alleged RC2 Crypto.Cipher.ARC4 Alleged RC4 Crypto.Cipher.Blowfish Crypto.Cipher.CAST Crypto.Cipher.DES The Data Encryption Standard. Very commonly used in the past, but today its 56-bit keys are too small. Crypto.Cipher.DES3 Triple DES. Crypto.Cipher.IDEA Crypto.Cipher.RC5 Crypto.Cipher.XOR The simple XOR cipher.
