OpenSSLWith security being top of mind for many organizations, the addition of the most complete Python wrapper for OpenSSL, M2Crypto, is a welcome addition to the enterprise-ready distribution of ActivePython. The M2Crypto module is available for Windows, Linux and Mac (for both x86 and x86_64) in ActivePython Business, Enteprise, and OEM Editions.

OpenSSL is a robust, commercial-grade, full-featured, and open source toolkit implementing the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols. OpenSSL also includes the full-strength general purpose cryptography library, and is the most widely used protocol for secure network communications.
