hashlib 20060408a - A python module providing access to MD5, SHA1,
SHA224, SHA256, SHA384 and SHA512 secure hash algorithms.

It uses OpenSSL (when available) to provide much faster platform
optimized versions of all of the above.  When linked with OpenSSL
additional algorithms are also available.



hashlib is included in Python 2.5, this is a backport to make the new
algorithms and optimized implementations available to earlier Python
