fsh is a tool for establishing an ssh tunnel for remote execution of commands without requiring an ssh authentication on every connection. Once the tunnel is established, remote commands can be executed almost instantaneously. This makes systems such as remote cvs over ssh much faster. It includes fcp, an rcp variant that uses fsh.
mxCrypto is an extension package that provides OO-style access to the cipher algorithms and hash functions included in OpenSSL/SSLeay, a very nifty cryptographic library originally written by Eric Young and now maintained by the OpenSSL team. Its main purpose is filling in the missing parts in Andrew Kuchling's pycrypt export package with high quality implementations. Due to the ITAR export restrictions on cryptographic software, Andrew's implementations are not legally downloadable from outside the US.
pyCA is a project to create Certification Authority in Python. It will generate a CA certificate hierarchy and initial CRLs, generate certificate requests with widely used web browsers, provides a search tool for client certificates in the OpenSSL certificate database, download of client certificates/certificate revocation lists with appropriate MIME types, storing all certificate data in LDAP repositories, scripts for the handling of the certification process on a non-networked system holding the CA's private key(s) and fairly easy configuration based on the OpenSSL configuration file.
Zorp is a proxy firewall suite with its core architecture is built around today's security demands: it uses application level proxies, is modular and component based, uses a script language to describe policy decisions, makes it possible to monitor encrypted traffic, lets you override client actions, and lets you protect your servers with its built in IDS capabilities.
Python OpenSSL Wrappers (POW) is an early release as it is now. The intention was to quickly cover the breadth of the OpenSSL library, then the depth of particular areas. Future releases will focus on bug fixes, and filling missing gaps in the API. The digests and ciphers should be adequate for most purposes as should the SSL wrappers. Although certificates and CRLs can be generated using this library, no extension support has been included in the current release.
pyOpenSSL is a Python wrapper for a subset of OpenSSL's functionality, featuring an advanced error management system, connection objects that wrap socket methods, and flexible context objects. Also included is a rudimentary crypto module that can be used to create and verify certificates (X509 objects).
