Not only does having the right API reduce learning time, it also relieves the development community of the need to have certain debates: design discussions that would have spawned long and contentious mailing list threads simply do not come up. That may not be quite the same thing as pure technical or aesthetic beauty, but in a project with many participants and a constant turnover rate, it's a beauty you can use.

By Mike Ivanov, February 20, 2010

There is a lot of interest in doing cryptography using Python these days which has resulted in quite an impressive number of cryptography related Python modules out there. PyPI package index alone has about 50 'cryptography'-tagged entries.

Unfortunately, the quality and scope of those packages, well, varies. So instead of putting together a list of All The Crypo Stuff Out There, I tried to discover cryptography toolkits an enterprise Python developer could be interested in.
